Hey! Do me a solid!

For the sake of our marriage, would ya'll check out the link on the sidebar titled "Paper Pals." This is Olivia's favorite store and we are trying to help them get hits on their blog. It really is a nice scrapbooking store, and they really like Harrison, so what's not to love.
On another semi-unrelated note: we traveled to Lewiston/Clarkston today. We took Spiral Highway, otherwise known as the spaghetti road. It was neat. Heck, at the top is a boot shop/souvenir store. Stop in and see Melvin. He is a nice feller. Then we went allover the twin cities. Stops at Costco, Orchard's Pawn, Lolo Sporting Goods and Primeland Co-operative. Then we took 195 to Pullman, to Paper Pals. I think Olivia should post, so I am outta here.

Ah, Sunday Afternoon...

I love Sunday. Many reasons for this, one being its the day to go to Church and enjoy the society of my fellow saints another is its really the only day Olivia and I get to spend a whole lot of time together. Right now she is playing the piano and Harrison is playing with a set of old license plates. Fun to watch? Yes. That little booger, earlier today, crawled up stairs at church. Now we really have to watch him!
Had a bit of a mix up this week, almost thought I was graduated. I thought I was at least 6 credits short, but the school academic advisor told me she thought i had enough credits to be finished. Visions of leaving Moscow and heading home to the Magic Valley filled my head. We got pretty excited. But, alas, she was wrong. I am actually 3 credits short of graduation. So, I will lighten my load and start to study for the bar.
I am going to try to post more often, and encourage Olivia to post her thoughts, even her "scrappy" ones. I don't know if we mentioned it, but she now has a 24" Cricut. It really is a neat machine, even if it cost an arm and a leg. Well, I am off to go to town to do a little HT. Have a nice day!

Well, it has really been a while...

Sorry for the hiatus, things have been a little crazy around here. Harrison is crawling everywhere, and thus the need to move things has hit. We have also started bathing him in the kitchen sink, he loves playing in the water and letting me hose him down with the flex hose. He is just growing like a dadgum weed. Harrison also attended quite a few law school classes. Just like dad, he paid attention mostly, until he would fall asleep to the droning of the professor.
Olivia finished up a trying semester, it was kinda tough to balance all her piano classes/practice with taking care of Harrison. She was pretty busy (and a little strung out), so this semester she is working at the Kid Care department of the North Idaho Athletic Club. She has also been working out, as membership to the club is part of her wages. For Christmas she got a huge surprise: a Cricut (the BIG one)! I think she likes it...
This is my last semester of school, ever! (I hope.) I had a fun semester, still yet to see grades, but I did calculations to know that only if I got all D's would I flunk out, so I am pretty sure I am okay. I took a bankruptcy class with a lab, and believe it or not, I kinda enjoy bankruptcy. I may think it is foolish that the remedy exists, but since it does, I am okay with helping people use it. I also took water law 1 & 2. Very fun. Water law 1 was the first A grade to show up on my transcript, so far. I was pleased. Steve Carpenter and I did a project for Negotiation and Appropriate Dispute Resolution that "forced" us to go to Lewiston and watch a livestock auction. It was quite entertaining and good clean fun, I think we may have had the liveliest presentation, according to our classmates.
This semester I am taking a law practice management course, Advanced Bankruptcy, Water Policy and Property Securities. It should be a fun semester, at least sorta laid back, as compared to the rest of school. We will be posting pictures, and hopefully Olivia posts her own update, so you get her side of the story...
Well, thats all the news from Lake Woebegone, were all the men are handsome, the women are strong and all the children are above average.
