Long Overdue Update

It’s been just over three months since our last post. I’ve been meaning to post an update, but just haven’t had the time. It’s a slow day at work today, so I figured I might as well get something down, even though it’s not on my time… shhhhh… don’t tell. Here’s what’s been going on with us the past few months, in list form, because who doesn’t like lists, right?

-Rachel is pregnant! 🙂

-It’s been a tough pregnancy, especially August and September 😦

-Our Volvo started to die, so we bought a minivan.


-At the end of August our renters moved out of our house after one year.

-With the help of Rachel’s family and our friends we spent nearly 10 days getting our house ready to sell.

-We put our house up for sale.

-We found an apartment in St. Louis Park and signed a one year lease!

-We found out we’re having another boy!

-At the end of September we drove out to Montana.

-In Montana we visited my Grandma and Aunts and Uncles out at the The Farm.

-Archie drove a tractor and pretty much loved everything about the farm.


-Once in western Montana we stayed in a really nice, but cheap condo on Big Montana in Whitefish.

-Spent a lot of time with my sister Stephanie and her new baby boy, Wyatt. Archie was very cute with Wyatt… he’s going to be a great big brother! Sadly, cousin Mark was away in California.


-Spent time with my parents.

-Spent time with our good friends Tom and Sharon.

-Went to many of our favorite spots: Tupelo (a great restaurant), Apgar, and Polebridge.



-We drank a lot of coffee and drove a lot.



-Once back in Minnesota we started moving into our apartment after nearly a year living with Rachel’s parents.

-Living with Rachel’s parents ended up working out really well, but it’s sure been nice having our own space again. It’s been a good transition for all of us, including Archie!

-Unpacking continues…

-Being pregnant has still been tough for Rachel, but she’s doing a lot better than she was at the end of the summer. Praise God!

-Our house didn’t sell, but we found some great renters!

-Letterpress… well, we haven’t done much letterpress lately and probably won’t be doing much for awhile with the new baby coming. However, that doesn’t mean the dream is dead. We’re just taking a step back for the time being until we have more time to commit to it. In the mean time we plan to do some projects here a there when time allows. In fact we are currently working some business cards! More to come on that.
