2016 is coming to an end! 2016 Photo Gallery Attached


It has been a long time since I posted on this family web site.  Facebook, Instagram, the photo sharing world has taken my attention away but in the time of reflection of year's end I find myself enjoying this site and photo galleries. 

I simply wanted to post various events and photos that I liked.  Check out the gallery attached to this blog.

I pray God's hand on my boys in 2017; along with Lisa & I as we continue life's journey and walk with our creator.

God Bless You All.

Always His.

The Masters Meet and Qualifying for STATE

After CIF is a meet called The Masters meet.  Only the top 12 runners by fastest time from the combined results of Divisino 1 thru 4 qualify.  Then the top 6 go to California STATE finals.   Collin made The Masters!!! Amazing.

Then even more amazing, he SMASHED his best time and set a NEW School RECORD running the 3200 meter in 9:00:00 !!!  Yes, exactly 9:00 Flat!! He placed 4th overall in Masters, qualifying him for STATE.  The first time in school history a male distant runner made Track & Field STATE Championships!  What a way to run at the end of your Senior Year.

We are PUMPED UP!!!

 

Foundation about to be Poured !!! 106 Jade Ave, Balboa Island

Before we pour the foundation to our new home, we wanted to build our home on the same foundation we build our lives. So we naturally needed to put a cross in the ground with the footings of our lot, so that the foundation of our home is built on the rock and cornerstone that is Christ ! We signed the concrete and added Mathew 7:24, " So everyone who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house upon the rock". The foundation pour starts this week!!

Today's Dose of Truth

Name just one famous person in history-good or bad-whose name has been adopted as a cuss word: Napoleon, Shakespeare, Hitler, Mother Teresa, or perhaps Gandhi? There's only One human being whose Name is used to express disgust. He is the One who said to love your enemies, to show kindness to those who despitefully use you, and to treat others as you would have them treat you. Why then is He despised? It's because He's also the One who maintained that God requires moral accountability. He warned, "The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because I testify of it that its works are evil" (John 7:7).

OC Championships

Collin ran his first "Big Boy" race by entering the sweepstakes Division I OC Championship race today.  It was a great learning experience for him!! The first picture is of Collin and a boy from Villa Park who won the entire race.  Collin was with him at the start!!!...next time he will be there with him at the finish also!! 

Princeton Invitional

Brandon ran at Princeton today.  AFTER hitting the Emergency Room 10 days ago in his last race due to heat exhaustion (80% humidity that day in Pennsylvania), he came back to run his fastest 8k of his freshman year! 25:08

Way to go Brandon! Here is the article of the team's races this weekend, the top 7 boys raced in Wisconsin:

Call me.......Captain Chris!!

You can not live on Balboa Island without a Duffy!!  I am now Captain Chris.  Who wants to go for a ride ??

Question, now that I am Captain Chris...can I marry people on my vessel/ship? 

What is the ship's name you ask?  "My Lisa"  ....nice, eh?

ok ok ok...it is not a ship....it is a electric duffy, but I am STILL CAPTAIN CHRIS!!

My Harvard Freshman Boy - Harvard 2017

Dropped Brandon off at college.  Wow!!  The whole family was there to support him.  Notice Cameron, Dartmouth Boy wearing a Harvard Tshirt in support.  Now that is love!!

My Dartmouth Boy and his GF!!

Cameron finished his sophomore summer in Hanover and came down to Cambridge to help his brother move into the dorms at Harvard.  We got to meet his GF!! Her name is Hannah.  Very sweet beautiful girl !!  We tried to be on our best behavior and act normal, I think she bought it !!


But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.
