The last semester of Graduate school is a killer. Trying to worry about finishing up scholarly papers all while also trying to worry about making sure I find some employment after graduating, all while taking care of a little one who is just starting to enter some of the fun of terrible two's. Fun all around I tell you. The good news is that I am done, "Schoolssssss out, for..ever!!!!" Thank you Alice Cooper. I did receive the board that should hold my degree on Friday May 13, 2011. The degree will come in the mail a few weeks later.




In other news, as most of you should know, we have baby number two on the way in September, as evidenced by this video viewed by many.






Well this month, we also found out that the inside of the cake was blue..which meant that we are having another boy. Then just one short week later we were made fun of by Seth Meyers on Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update about how we announced the baby's gender.



This month was also highlighted by an opputinity for me to get a garden started, and also a trip up to Milwaukee with the family to have fun at the Milwaukee zoo. Colin loved the Tigers, he was roaring at the tigers as they walked by the glass viewing window, I didn't get great video of it, but this is what I did get. You can hear him roaring in the background.

So this has been an eventful month. I start up some small contract jobs this month, working for a local company doing photoshoots, and video work, which should be a lot of fun, and then in the fall, I will be teaching my first class as an instructor at Northern Illinois University, which I am really excited about. I got some great photos and videos this past weekend as we were back in Chillicothe for Grandpa Briggs' 80th birthday, so once I get a chance to go through them, I will get those posted as well.


Peace and Love, Briggs

Well, I said I would be better about blogging photos and stuff, and of course I haven't been, so here are some things from around christmas that I thought was worth it to put up on here.

Firstly...here was a video as we were walking through the mall on the way to see santa, he was really getting the hang of this walking thing by now.

Also as most of you that would

be looking at this would recognize, here is some of the shots of his first day in the snow, and also from his time with Santa. He also likes to try on daddy's boots. Sorry this is all a little disorganized, but I have a 18 month old running around causing havoc as I am posting this.

Love the briggs'

So first video

Here is my first attempt at doing a post on here with a video. Colin has this new habit that Amanda and I like to call him "Powering Up," He flexes his muscles and makes a funny face as if he is the incredible hulk. We were able to capture his Power Up on our phones and so here it is.

He loves doing it and seeing us laugh at him as he is doing it. So this is the first of what hope to be many posts on here...

POWER UP!!!!

Time To Brag about the family

So I decided it was time to start a little blog where I put up some stories and some great videos and photos and stuff. So I will see if I can do better with this than I did with the my Ireland one. So here we go. I will try to get some stuff up about once a week. I have some pictures, but they are on my upstairs computer, so I will try and get some good stuff up tomorrow.

Wish me luck
