Life is crazy good today (mostly)

Props to my brothers, first and foremost. Bruce just presented a working version of APS's first ever working capital tracking system to mgmt. Nice work, bro! Tee and his SNAP fitness centers are off and running - the 98th and Unser location is going gangbusters, and the two new sites should be open in June.

Work at Intel has taken a VERY interesting turn. I have been working with colleagues on design engineering computing, business intelligence and visualization, and design engineering license mgmt. The results are starting to show. A very positive side benefit have been 3 different opportunities to work in different groups have come across my desk in the last week. Never in my life have I had such good choices to make. The great thing is the opportunity to draw on the wisdom of some of my closest advisors to make such a tough, but positive decision. I believe my mind is made up, but I'm gonna sleep and pray on it for 24 hours.

Speaking of prayer, please pray for Grant again this week. He's having a hard time at school again, and we're not sure what has changed.

Lots of love this week, looking forward to Mother's day.

OK - OK - I'm finally posting again!

First things first! Come one, come all to the Spring Musical Pre-First, 1st, 2nd & 3rd grade Sunset Mesa Musical 6:30 PM, April 25th. It's a Friday night at the Sandia Baptist Church Auditorium. The musicals fill up, so be sure to come early if you want to see Brett perform. He's been singing for months! Afterward, we will likely go to the Flying Star restaurant at Juan Tabo and Montgomery.

The boys are growing like weeds. They are currently very much into Indiana Jones (new movie, new video game, and new lego products are all feeding this obsession.) Brett is making a stop action lego movie, of course, with Grant's help. They are looking forward to summer very much. We think we have finally settled on a summer plan for the boys. Sunset Mesa in the mornings, a new nanny in the afternoon - with lots of playdates and gym time in the summer.

Rachel's baby has arrived = Michael Anthony - and is a completely beautiful bundle of boy. Heather is due June 15th, but I'm hoping she makes it to our annual Mother's day at the Zoo.

Frank won an award at work called the "Intel Achievement Award" - the highest award given to anyone inside Intel. We are going to be forced to go to San Fransciso so he can hang out with the big shots in downtown San Francisco - right across from union square, and to rub elbows with the captains of industry. We hope to connect with some old friends of ours in the area as well.

Finally - after school gets out and before the summer gets into full swing, we'll be visiting Florida for a week. I can't wait - we'll go hand out at roughly the same property we did last year. Beachfront, Gulf Side, with lots of kid friendly amenities and significant returning guest discounts = a nice relaxing way to kick off the summer. We can't wait, and are trying hard to get back in shape for Florida.
