We Will Miss a Few Things

So, as excited as we are to get back to SC, there are a few things that we are going to miss in Gainesville. Actually people would be a little more accurate. We just got back from the river where our wonderful Sunday School class had a party. It has been so nice to make such good friends in just one year. We will truly miss all of you. Click here to see a few more pictures from the party.

Uncle John and Aunt Maria

My sister, Rebecca and her husband, Kelby became the proud parents of a precious little girl on May 31, 2008. She was 6 pounds, 7 ounces and 20 1/2 inches long! Her name is Haley Louise Hagerla. Thankfully, John and I were in South Carolina and were able to go to the hospital to see them. She's absolutely beautiful and I love her to pieces already!

Someone Better Test Me for the Juice

Well Maria and I are back from Connecticut where I played in the Third Annual John P. Hine Memorial golf Tournament. Although I did not defend my title as Gross Champion with my foursome, I did regain my the title of Longest Drive which I won in the inaugural tournament. It was great seeing family and friends again. Maria and I were both looking forward to getting out of the heat in Florida, but apparently we took it with us to Connecticut where it was in the upper 90's.

Our First Post

So we are sitting in the terminal at the Jacksonville airport and decided that this would be as good of a time as any to start our family blog. We are a little late though, since Maria is now 5 months pregnant with our first child. No, we don't know what it is going to be, and please ask before touching her stomach. And we know, we know, she is going to be pregnant all summer long. We have decided that if our baby is a little girl then we are going to name her Taylor Elizabeth and if it is a boy we will name him William Porter and he will go by Porter.

I am almost through with school at the University of Florida where I am earning my Masters in Law in Taxation. We will be moving to Greenville, SC, A.K.A. heaven, in July. We have a contract on a house up there and our closing is scheduled for July 1. By the grace of God, we finally rented out our house in Columbia to a med student and his family for the next two years. We were really getting tired of paying rent and a mortgage every month. Stay tuned for future updates about the progress of Maria's pregnancy and pictures of the new house once we get all moved in.
