I am involved in my church here in Austin, First Evangelical Free Church, working with TouchGlobal, and missions. In my spare time, I like reading, watching movies, listening to music, hanging out with friends and working on genealogy. I'll be adding new links and pictues; so check back from time to time to see if anything has changed.
Flint Hills This is where I grew up - in the Flint Hills of Kansas. I
found this page as part of the K-State Football site
that is maintained by fans (Gotta love those K-State Fans!). See, not all of
Kansas is flat.
Vatican City, I just got back from a trip to Italy, and loved visiting the Vatican. We also went to Venice, which really is sinking into the ocean, and Florence. One big lesson is that 'Bed & Breakfast' in Venice, doesn't mean the same thing as it does in the US.
Macchu Picchu I've never
been to there, but I thought this was a cool picture with the llama in it. I
fell in love with the Andes when I was teaching at El Camino Academy, a school for the
children of missionaries in Bogota, Colombia, S.A. Bill & Angela Louden who are teachers at
the school also have a page on their site for ECA.
I started working on my genealogy a couple years ago to find out if I was
related to one of my friends. I still haven't proved it; but have found some new
cousins along the way; and am starting to get a better idea of who I am and
where I come from. It's also Addictive! Each of these pages has links to my
other genealogy pages by surname. Some of them are still in Progress.
I really got started on the whole genealogy thing from talking with mom.
She used to tell me all kinds of stories when I was young, mainly about our family.
Sometimes I think I should have listened more than I did. We lost mom in April 2002, and
I miss her a lot
I have part of my Welch line up. The Stubblefield lines
from that branch of the family are also online.
My Pringle line
has the names but not dates on some. Those are coming soon with the Alderson and Hidy lines. There are links
to the pages; but they are only partially there. It's taking me longer than
anticipated to get them up.
You can check out both of my Anderson Pages. These are where my Swedish
heritage comes in. I have 2 pages, one for Anders Anderson
and one for Maria
Persdotter Anderson. I am still adding family information to these; but
they have the basic information.
I'm hoping to be able to update the pictures from time to time as I get new
pictures of my friends either scanned in or processed on disk. And as I find out
about web pages, I'll add those too; but can't promise to get all of them or to
get them in a timely manner. I'm already having to do some backtracking on
Jonathan & Mr. Bunn. Jonathan is one of my best friends and a pediatrician in Philadelphia. I have pics from his wedding in a Yahoo Album. I got to be a bridesmaid even though I didn't meet the bride until the rehearsal.
Jennie I've been friends with them for years. This was at their wedding. It's one of the funniest wedding recption moments I've ever seen. Patrick was the best man, and Jennie's sister Joey was the maid of honor.
This is his home page. He's one of my favorite Aggies - if you can actually have a favorite aggie, and has registered his name as a wesite... http://www.scottmccann.com/ That URL will redirect you to his other site at the link I have above.
one of my favorite partners in crime. I got to teach her the true use of post it notes... Thanks Lourenda for the pic! She now works for the US State Department in one of their overseas embassies.
Matt I've been friends with for years, and was in their wedding.
Amy I've been friends with her for years. She's now a missionary overseas.
Rob Wood. He's one of
my K-State friends. The word "eclectic" would good to describe him - or
maybe just "random". We'll pop in and out of each others lives every
couple of years or so. At least he makes life interesting.
Arizona Trip is non-wedding related pics from when we went to
Phoenix for Tae & Cindy's wedding. Ruben, Shelli, Peggy & I took
a road trip for the event.
& Lucy are my previous roommate's pets. Bailey is the cat; Lucy is the
out of his shell and got creative a few years ago for Halloween which
surprised a lot of us. I think he's not that thrilled that I keep this pic online for the world to see, but I enjoy it.
Robby is one of
my many 'off-the-wall' friends. He's also one of my favorites - not many
people will let me tell others we're twins just to confuse them. He can
always manage to keep me amused. He married a beautiful woman named Stephanie, and they have 2 gorgeous children.
