Baby Bump?

Keep in mind that I'm holding my shirt tight against my stomach and I'm not sticking out my belly at all. Also keep in mind that baby's sometimes grow in your butt, and that's probably why it looks like my butt is pregnant too.

What motivates you?

A few weeks ago I started doing research on getting a Doctorate of Business Administration. While talking to one of the admission counselors, she said that if I complete the program I will have a published dissertation that I can look back on with pride. I told her that I'm not really motivated by being published. I then asked her if I could make my kids call me Doctor if I finished the program. She said yes.

I start my Doctorate on June 27 at Walden University.

Here are some pictures of the most recent chairs I've painted. This one was for the granddaughter of a retired teacher, Rowen, who is also Ruby Sun's cousin.

This one was for Kaley's sister Kelsey and her 2 year old Caden.

Paul Jarvis

The man mentioned above is Sara's future lover. He is one of my favorite people in the world and they would get along so well.

I was recently named to the position of Student Opportunity Award Chairman. This means that I will be chairing the committee that reviews the applications of students who need money that is raised during the K-State Proud campaign. I have told you all about the campaign before, but now I have direct contact with the people who receive those awards. It is the coolest opportunity I have ever had.

I was asked to give a student profile a while back for the K-State website. They recently posted the new profiles on the website. Click here to view my profile!!!

Life is great! I have been given a lot of awesome opportunities here at K-State and I couldn't be happier!

Look up Paul Jarvis on Facebook. Sara and he will fall in love in a week or so.

Exciting 3 days for the parents

Being the good husband that I am, I bought your mom a new lawnmower Saturday morning. And I captured the special moment of her first trip around the yard....

Saturday night, we went to the James Taylor concert. Along with everyone in Wichita over the age of 50 and one 4 year old. Guess where she sat? Even with her kicking the back of our seats through the first half of the show, it was a great evening and here is a pic from our seats.

You'll have to take my word for it. That is James Taylor and the seats were awesome.

And then tonight, the biggest event of them all. Mom received the Golden Apple award for being the best teacher at her school. That makes 3 Apples won for teaching excellence in our household. I have zero. You do the math.
