Now hear this…  My little sister, Rachel, is graduating from high school… What does this mean?  It means that I am officially old.  I am fifteen years older than my youngest sister.  She has decided to go to Saint Catherine’s in Minneapolis, MN on an academic scholarship plus the swim team is going after her pretty hard too!  Congrats Rachel!

My oldest sibling, Kaitlin, has graduated college with her MSW and is a therapist in River Falls, WI.  She is doing incredibly well for herself and I am quite proud of her.  Her daughter, my niece (for the logical impaired), Chloe, is getting so big and smart!  Congrats Kaitlin on the great job!  Being a therapist is hard work!

My little brother, Kyle, has gotten a co-op at Master Lock, and may quite well be designing locks that we need to use a bolt cutter to get into!  😉 Love ya lil bro.  Congrats on that co-op…  I wish you would have gotten the co-op at Harley Davidson though, that would have been so much cooler!

11203156_966907185065_8435057198059700509_nMy kids, Kenny and Bradley, are getting so big!  I love them so much and I can’t believe how much they have grown.  Especially, how much they are friends, as well as brothers!  I know that is a relationship that I want to foster within them.  There is nothing more special than a bond between brothers!

Sarah, my wife, is still doing well!  She loves her job at Grossnickle Eye Center, and from the seems of it she is doing very well!  She has made friends and is learning so much!  I love her so much!

I have decided to take on the biggest challenge yet.  I have assembled a team that cares about Veterans as much as I do, and together FreedomSystem.org is growing and becoming a real thing to help our Veterans.  American Veterans who need help have an excellent resource of understanding Veterans and conservative values.  TOWbyGod

The VA is still giving issues to my family, but we are working through it.  I have tried to make things better, but they are working hard to disrupt my life the best they can.  I know that this sounds impossible and all because they are backed by the government and all.  But you know, it is what it is.

Oh yea, by the way, our basement is on hiatus for two reasons: 1) Funds are low.  2) Our basement has sprung a leak from underneath the basement and we need to get it back to dry again.  We are not happy about this, but we have to do what we have to do.

Projects have been coming in too!  Lots of small projects, but small projects keep idle hands busy.  However, we are working on becoming more projects, and of course there is always a FreedomSystem post coming to you soon!

Finally, my physical fitness is trying to make a comeback when I can get out of bed.  I have achieved a blue belt in Hapkido.  I haven’t gotten out since January, but I want to go back, it is just difficult with the stomach issues.  I have, however, gotten back into riding, and I have been mountain biking on most Saturday mornings – after a pain medication and anti-anxiety meds.  I am on my way and getting riding!
