I notice that my last post was a year ago. Almost to the day. . .plus a couple of weeks. One might assume that this means nothing of import happened to my family this past year. One would be wrong in this assumption. This past year has not only been filled with many fun adventures and new experiences, it has also been a life changer for my family. The last time I wrote, back in June 2011, I had three beautiful daughters, Brett was involved in a Post-Doc at UT South Western, and I lived in a cozy apartment in Flower Mound Texas. Today as I write, in June 2012, I have FOUR beautiful daughters, Brett is done with "school" and has a "real" job at J. Craig Venter Institute in San Diego, and I live in a cozy apartment in Poway California.
