Life is crazy...

Welp, its been a while since I last posted...I know you all are very sad about that (actually, I'm sure most have not noticed). But life has been so busy lately!! I can't believe it is almost august! That means Jason and I are about to pack up and move apartments, I am finishing up at CPS on August 22nd, and I am starting school on the 25th....and then will eventually find a new job! So many changes. I am excited for the changes, but I'm not gonna lie, theres alot goin on there.

Lets see, what have we been up to...Jason was in a wedding last weekend in Fort Worth. It was really fun to see Jason's dear friend get married. And Jas looks cute in a tux. Oh, Jas and I played "house" at Christy and Jordans for about two weeks while they were in Germany. That was really fun...we watered the plants and I swept alot. Good times. We have made homemade pizza twice...I want to become really good at making pizza. Like I want it to be a staple in the Sudan home. I have a recipe for a honey wheat dough that I want to try...but I'm afraid that I'll only want it to taste like California Pizza Kitchen's honey wheat dough, and I know that is not possible because that is TOO good. Hmm pizza dough, what an exciting topic for a blog.

Hmm what else? Oh, I went to the dentist (I wanted to use my insurance that I've had all year before I quit my job) and I freakin have a cavity. Suck! I go to to get it filled this Friday. We'll see how that goes...

Well, I need to shower because I just went on a long walk on Katy Trail in the Texas heat, so I've got some layers of sweat on my skin that need some washin. BUT I will leave you witha cute picture of me and my nephew from our fam reunion over the 4th... enjoy!

Good Song

Here are the lyrics to a song Jas and I have been listening to lately...
convicting, yes? But it's very good and carries a lot of truth.

"Rich Young Ruler"
By Derek Webb

Poverty is so hard to see
when it’s only on your tv and twenty miles across town
where we’re all living so good
that we moved out of Jesus’ neighborhood
where he’s hungry and not feeling so good
from going through our trash he says,
more than just your cash and coin
i want your time, i want your voice
i want the things you just can’t give me

So what must we do
here in the west we want to follow you
we speak the language and we keep all the rules
even a few we made up
come on and follow me
but sell your house, sell your SUV
sell your stocks, sell your security
and give it to the poor
what is this, hey what’s the deal
I don’t sleep around and I don’t steal
I want the things you just can’t give me

Because what you do to the least of these
my brother’s, you have done it to me
because i want the things you just can’t give me.

Hi...I'm Alex, nice to meet you.

...This what usually can be heard at my annual family reunion...where I don't know very many people. Jason thinks its hilarious that I don't know many of relatives, BUT I don't see them but once a year...and sometimes I am not able to go to the reunion so I might not see this side of the family but once every two or three years. So this fourth of July, Jason and I headed down to Burnet (technically Llano/Bluffton), TX and re-met some cousins, swam, sat around, and ate alot of bbq. The 3 day weekend was much needed and really relaxing. Jason played "sea monster" with my 3 year old nephew the whole time...I'm pretty sure he likes Jason more than he likes me. Whatever, I'm OK with it. Here are some pics of the wonderful weekend...

Me and the sis!

me and jas!

my mom and sweet ashtin!

grumpy ashtin!

No longer a blogger Virgin!

I don't know really what to say on here. So, I guess I will tell you what is on my mind....my wife. I absolutely love everything about her. Right now she is actually on the phone on a conference call for work, but I know she is craving to hang up and hang out with me.....seriously....she loves spending time with me. I don't know how, I even annoy myself sometimes, but she seems to really like me....and I think I really like her too. She just got her haircut and she looks absolutely gorgeous......welp thats the end of my blog.
