So much to tell, but . . .

Becky and I have really enjoyed our first week of having a blog. Now, not only do we get to check our often uneventful email, but we also get to watch our comments section like a hawk, only to find 2 in a week. We are realizing that you have to post if you want traffic. The same picture of Sam for 8 days just won't cut it (though you have to admit it is a cute one!) Anyway, we really do have so much to tell, but we just don't know how to say it. I have asked Becky just about every night if she is going to post anything new, and she just says, "I don't feel like it." You see, this takes work for us. With so many of you going on before us into blogdom, we feel we have so much to live up to.

Joking aside, it really is a fun waste . . . I mean . . . use of my time. We actually have big plans for this little corner of the web. We are leaving in 6 days for our survey trip to Romania. We hope to keep you all posted about our trip on this blog. We will be snapping lots of pictures and maybe even some video that we would love to share with you. So, please, stay tuned! Surely, in time, we'll get over this intitial intimidation.

I just wanted to leave you guys a comment - just because it's so fun to see "1 comment" and click as fast as you can to see who it is and what they said! So hi! I am a bad blogger keeper-upper as well. Our problem is our internet is as slow as the hills and very moody, so I have to wait for a rare day it is working well and then blog like a mad dog!

Well, I've been checking this blog every day to see when you two would post again! YAY!!!! :) I had to sign up for a "Google" account in order to leave a comment, so that might be why people aren't doing it. It's a pain b/c you have to remember your user and password. Maybe you could change the settings? Just a suggestion! :) Hope you three are doing well. We're praying for you!

Here's just a little tip - If you want lots of comments, put up pictures Sam. Karis and I can blog for paragraphs and usually get one or two comments, but when we put up a picture of Kayla we've got people coming out of the woodwork to comment. Not sure what that's all about, but it is what it is!
