I have decided it is time to learn to tie a tie. I am 28 years old, have a 7 month year old and a masters degree, it is about time I learn to tie one. So after one day of practice this is what I have been able to accomplish.

He Stands Up

About a month ago Becks decided to stand up in his crib. He said it was no big deal and for his next big event he is going to beat Jay and Jorge in Pac-Man. A little history…Pac-Man was originally called Puck-Man when Atari first came out with it, but after 1980s street vandels made changes to the name on the original machines they changed his name to Pac-Man. At one time in history there was even Pac-Man cereal and cartoon on television.

Becks new Kit

This is Beckham in his new “kit” as the Brits say. My brother Brad and his wife Joy bought it for him after they caught a case of World Cup fever and it the coolest thing he owns now. Now he just needs some cleets or rather “boots” and the ability to walk, then he’ll be ready to go.

Ahh…Here we go….

Everyone has a blog and I must say I think they are quite self-centered and arrogant since it assumes someone really wants to read what you have to write. With that in mind I’m ok if no one ever reads this, its just for our friends to check every so often so they can see what we are up to without actually having to call


One day a few months ago we stopped for gas and Becks asked Brian if he could help. Brian told already finished, so he told him he could help next time. Beckham has a wicked memory. So when Brian took him out today, Becks asked if he could help pump gas. Brian didn’t need gas, but stopped anyways! It was the first thing I heard about from him when they walked in the door!


Boo is Sadie Piper’s favorite part of Monsters, Inc. She’s not into movies, but when Boo comes on, she gets so excited and becomes captivated!
