This rainbow appeared just as we were putting the kid's into bed. The camera doesn't do it justice. It was the brightest, sharpest rainbow I've ever seen. #sleepcanwait

We spent the weekend celebrating this special girl turning 5. She's full of spunk and always knows what she wants. Right now she loves foxes, art, and being in charge. Happy birthday, Lilly! #growinguptoofast

Our earthly possessions are all loaded and on their way to Ohio. Thank you, Bloomington for being an amazing chapter in our family's story. We love you and will miss you. "Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end." #ohioorbust #nationwideisonmyside

I literally don't know where to begin. In Hebrew there is a phrase, "ezer kenegdo" which is what the Lord calls Eve and is commonly translated as "helpmeet". A more enlightening translation is, "perfect match" or "one who completes," as in Eve was the perfect other half to Adam. In every way. Not above, below, ahead, or behind; a perfect match. 
I can think of no phrase that more perfectly describes my relationship with Ashley. She is the perfect complement to all my faults and weaknesses. She makes me strong where I am weak, and she makes me excel where I am strong.

She has given me four beautiful children, and in a couple months will give birth to another. I could not be more grateful for her and the mother she is to our children. She has nearly boundless patience and enthusiasm. She teaches them how to love themselves and others. She shows empathy, kindness, and charity in ways I am not yet capable of. 
Thanks, Ashley for all that you are and all that you do, you truly are my ezer kenegdo. Happy Mother's Day.

I've had this sticker on my car for almost three years and it hasn't faded, cracked or peeled at all. Safe to say this will look great wherever you put it for as long as you want it.

That's it, folks. I'm officially an MBA. So grateful to the many people who supported me these past 21 months (and countless months and years before). I'm especially grateful to my incredible wife who sacrificed many days and nights alone with the kids so I could pursue this degree. 
Thanks Kelley Family, you're the best. 
Now on to Columbus, Ohio!

I am thrilled to have tied for first yesterday in the Clapp Idea Competition! Thank you to everyone who took the Cloud Camper survey, helped me with the numbers, or let me bounce ideas off of them. An especially big thank you to my ever-patient, always supportive wife, @ashnicolaysen. I literally could not have done this (or countless other things you've supported me through) without you.
