Colorado

Posted by Eric Osborn on Saturday, April 13, 2013, In : General Spiel 
It's has been a year of excitement!  Lynette, Sarah, and myself moved to Colorado and I started graduate school at UNC and teach some labs there, Sarah started school and is making a lot of friends, and Lynette is starting her LPCC and loves seeing the mountains everyday.  We've had a lot of fun and memories so far and look forward to many years here in Colorado.

School

Posted by Eric Osborn on Thursday, April 5, 2012, In : General Spiel 
After all of the time spent traveling to and from different Universities we finally decided to move to Colorado and attend school there.  We are packing up and getting ready to buy a house out in Colorado.  So, for the next 5+ years we'll be in northern Colorado.  

We also posted new pictures of Sarah.  Her vocabulary skills are increasing dramatically everyday.  Her sentence structure is coming along very nicely and so are her alphabet and numbers.  She's great and we love her very much.

Sarah the Wee One!

Posted by Eric Osborn on Friday, November 25, 2011, In : General Spiel 
Sarah has been very adventurous.  She loves to go outside and play, walk around the block, color sidewalks with chalk, and play with flowers.  We took some pictures of her playing with rose pedals, she was picking up pedals and throwing them while she sequels.  When I took a big handful of pedals off of a dying rose and offered them to her she had a look that reminded me of the little fat boy from Hook when we saw all of the food on the table.  She is becoming more communicative everyday.  He...

New Photos!

Posted by Eric Osborn on Saturday, October 1, 2011, In : General Spiel 
Sarah had a fun wet day on Thursday.  She was playing on the back patio and I was watering the ginger and the trees when Sarah came up to see what I was doing.  She put her hand in the water stream and then giggled and ran away.  After that I couldn't help but spray her, at first she was put off and ran to the edge of the patio but she kept coming back.  So, after a couple of minutes Sarah was running in and out of the water laughing and giggling.  She then tried to drink from the nozzle.  At...

Change of Plans

Posted by Eric Osborn on Saturday, August 27, 2011, In : General Spiel 
There has been a small change in plans.  The pre-health committee who controls the letters of recommendations to Med, Dent, OT, PT, ect schools forbids any professor on the committee to write personal letters.  Two out of the three professors that I want to write letters are on the committee.  After more investigation I found that I meet the requirements for the committee, but the deadline was yesterday.  So, I cannot enter Dent school next fall.  
Here's the new plan.  I'm going to apply to G...

Summers wrapped up

Posted by Eric Osborn on Monday, August 1, 2011, In : General Spiel 
The summer semester is now over, and we start the fall semester in a few weeks.  Lynette, is still gathering hours for her internship and working hard to be a great counselor.  I'm studying for the DAT that I'm going to take on the 16th of this month.  Sarah, is cuter than ever.  She learned how to twirl for a couple girls at church, so now every once in a while still start doing lazy little circles and eventually fall over and walk kind of funny afterwards.
We are doing great and everything i...

Sarah's Birthday

Posted by Eric Osborn on Friday, June 24, 2011, In : General Spiel 
Sarah turned one on the 21-Jun-2011.  We went to Build-A-Bear and Sarah had a pink Hello Kitty stuffed, she really likes it.  Later we made her a dutch apple pie and she ate it with some ice cream.  Pictures and a video are uploaded to the site so you can enjoy the fun as well. 
Today, the 24-Jun-2011, we went to the Norton Art Gardens and took some pictures.  Sarah was tired when we arrived so she didn't cooperate very well.  We'll go back soon for more pictures.

Wow! 6 Months!

Posted by Eric Osborn on Thursday, June 9, 2011, In : General Spiel 
It's been 6 months since we posted.  Some new pictures will be posted soon.  Well then, on to the family. 
Lynette accepted a great job offer at her internship site and now she will be getting paid for what she has to do for school (can't really get better than that).  It wasn't easy at all to make her job work, but we eventually straightened everything out.  She is the counselor for the juvenile drug court, she is finding out that Shreveport is a horrible, horrible town. 
Sarah is very mobil...

Snow in the South

Posted by Eric Osborn on Sunday, January 9, 2011, In : General Spiel 
Today, the town shutdown.  The roads are clear, the cars have a small amount of slush on them, and it was raining.  Malls refused to open and businesses closed.  It did however snow from 3:00 pm to 3:15 pm.  It still surprises me that these conditions are considered a weather alert.  When in New York we had buses flip and we were still responsible to get to school.  We had 10 feet of snow and we still had to go to school.  These people down here need to have driver safety training.  ...

Sigh .....

Posted by Eric Osborn on Sunday, December 12, 2010, In : General Spiel 
Finals week is over and Lynette and I are so relieved to be done with this semester.  We have just over a month before we start back up again, but it will be a great month with nothing to do.  Sarah is doing great (we posted new pictures of her).

We converted the site over to Google Friend Connect and have seen a good response with activity.  We closed our Facebook fanpage and dissociated the site from Facebook.  I have also deleted my Facebook page and plan to use Google Friend Connect more o...

One Week Left

Posted by Eric Osborn on Thursday, November 25, 2010, In : General Spiel 
This semester has one week until finals.  This was a pretty rough semester because, of the lifestyle changes that we made for Sarah.

We also graphically updated the site.  Hopefully, version 3.0 is more visually pleasing.  Along with the graphical changes, we also brought new features to the site from Google Friend Contact.  These features include, membership status, newsletters, page by page comments, and faster updates. Soon there will be a social feature that will enable voice, video, text,...

Halloween

Posted by Lynette Osborn on Sunday, October 31, 2010, In : General Spiel 
Our ward had a Halloween party last night, but I had to work, so Eric stayed home with Sarah.  We put her in a monkey costume and took a picture, and today we carved a pumpkin.  Most of church was cancelled because of some backed up sewer lines.  We bought a big bag of Halloween candy, but since our neighborhood hasn't gotten any trick-or-treaters we'll save some for our primary kids and eat it ourselves.  Yay for sugar.

New Web Feature

Posted by Eric Osborn on Thursday, October 28, 2010, In : General Spiel 
We are very excited to announce a new feature to the website.  We have introduced the Family Stories wiki.  What this is:  is a wiki for all family members to edit and add stories about themselves and others.  We want this wiki to become a extensive family journal, full of memories and moments.  There is a small learning curve to edit this wiki, but hopefully it will be worth it.  We really want for everyone to get excited about this.

One Month Left

Posted by Eric Osborn on Monday, October 25, 2010, In : General Spiel 
Theres one month of school left in the semester.  Well... 5 weeks really, but it's nice to think of it as only a month.  On the up side theres only a year left of school.  Again, not really but hey.  Sarah is happy, she is currently playing with Mr. Fluffers.  And, it finally rained.  First day of rain in over a month.  There have also been around 10 low flying jets flying over the house for the past few weeks.  But, all in all it hasn't been too bad.  Life is good....

Fall Break

Posted by Eric Osborn on Friday, October 15, 2010, In : General Spiel 
Lynette and I have Thursday and Friday off from school, which would be great if we didn't have to study.  I have a Cell and an Embyro test when I go back, and they're not that much fun to study for.  We are volunteering on Saturday at the National Wildlife Refuge, in Bossier City.  It'll be a nice break from the monotony of text books.  Lynette and I are also starting to exercise every morning and evening to help keep us healthy.  Sarah has found herself a best friend in the shape of a fluffy...

Near the End

Posted by Eric Osborn on Monday, August 2, 2010, In : General Spiel 
Lynette and Sarah both had doctors appointments, and both are doing great.  Sarah has to go back next week for immunization shots. Sarah is now 11 pounds 12 ounces and is 21 inches long.  As for me, my last day of work is Thursday and after that they only going to work me when I have school breaks.  The semester starts back on the 23rd.  Lynette and I have our schedules alternating so someone will always be watching Sarah.  The only exception to that rule is for 2 days out of the week Sarah w...

C. elegan Research

Posted by Eric Osborn on Tuesday, June 8, 2010, In : General Spiel 
I was offered a research position at the college.  I'll be establishing a C. elegan library and deploying new software, worm tracker, to follow C. elegan behavior under normal conditions and under anti-psychotic medication.  This is going to be a great summer.  Sarah will be here around the 27th of June, I have a fantastic job, and Lynette has 7 weeks off.

Finals are Over!

Posted by Eric Osborn on Thursday, May 13, 2010, In : General Spiel 
Today is/was the last day for finals.  I had my last one at 8:00 this morning and Lynette will finish up at 5:00 tonight.  This was a heavy semester, because I loaded up with the hardest courses this semester so it's all down hill from here on out!  We're looking forward to a nice relaxing summer . . . wait . . . oh, never mind!  We're excited to have Sarah and Lynette's ready to return back to her pre-pregnancy state of being.  Quick funny story, after Lynette came home from work today I sai...

Posted by Eric Osborn on Tuesday, March 23, 2010, In : General Spiel 
Well, not much has happened in the past little while.  High points:  We celebrated your two year anniversary on the 15th; we went to Red  Lobster to commemorate our first date and spent a nice day at home.  Sarah has been squirming and kicking a lot which I find kind of funny because Lynette makes around 30 trips to the bathroom a day.  Last Saturday it snowed again here which is really late for that kind of thing to happen.  Other than that, we work and go to school not a lot of stuff going ...

A Star For Lynette

Posted by Lynette Osborn on Sunday, February 14, 2010, In : General Spiel 
For Valentine's Day, my sweet Eric gave me a star.  Well, okay...I guess he can't technically do that, but he did get a star to be named after me.  :)  I have to admit that I have always wanted my own star.  The star is named "Lynette Bahr Osborn" and can be found within Ursa Major.  We looked it up on all the sky charts we could find and printed it out.  We have the exact coordinates in the sky.  It has a greenish hue.  I don't know if it is really a far away planet, a galaxy, a sun, or what...

Snow Day

Posted by Eric Osborn on Friday, February 12, 2010, In : General Spiel 
Today Lynette and I awoke to a yard full of snow!  So of course we went out to play.  After making a body piece for a snowman that was to heavy to lift we made a few snow-people instead, and a few snow animals.  After completing the first two snow-people the mailman awarded us with the "Snowman Award".  Below is a one photo from the winter album, click on it to see more.                                                                                                                            ...

Snow in Louisiana?

Posted by Eric Osborn on Thursday, February 11, 2010, In : General Spiel 
Schools are out, businesses are closed, riots in the streets ,,, well the first two are true the riots will start Monday.  All schools from pre-elementary to college are closed today and tomorrow due to the snow. Monday and Tuesday even more things will be closed due to Mardi Gras, I find it very disturbing that Mardi Gras has superseded Presidents Day has a holiday here in the dark places of the world. This is, I'm sure, the first time most the people here in the dirty south have seen this n...

The Days Go Bye!

Posted by Eric Osborn on Tuesday, February 9, 2010, In : General Spiel 
So far this semester has been the hardest one yet.  It requires all of my time and energy.  I don't think that it is fair that my classes are harder than Lynette's, that makes no sense.  Well, Lynette's belly is getting a little bigger and according to "the books" little Sarah should be able to hear us now.  I think that is pretty exciting.  The days are going by so fast.  I have five exams coming up and it feels like we just started.  I'm currently procrastinating studying.  It hard this sem...

Wrapped Up

School is over and Lynette and I did very well!  We rearranged the house for the baby already because we know that we won't have time later to accomplished anything due to school.  Updated photos of the house are up and ready to be viewed.  We'll have new ultra sound pictures at the end of the month.  All is Well!

Job Situation

Posted by Eric Osborn on Saturday, November 7, 2009, In : General Spiel 
Well working for LSU-Health Science Center Billing Department is like being hit in the face with a brick.  It's that much fun.  After the mind numbing time I spent there on Friday I knew if I went back I would have to do something drastic, like shredding all of the pointless files.  So I went to the Old Farmers Almanac General Store and talked with the manager and he called his District Manager and she said yes and I did all of my paperwork there, and I start today.  Neither one of the manage...

Holloween 2009

Posted by Eric Osborn on Saturday, October 31, 2009, In : General Spiel 
Well, this kicks off the beginning of something that might just end in a month or so but, hey who knows?
Lynette is at work, dressed as a polynesian princess, and I'm at home suppose to be doing calculus, but I have no ambition to do it.  That's not true I have a calculus test on Thursday and I need to do well on it. 
Job wise, after two interviews, three paperwork sessions, a drug test, an awkward encounter with a secretary, and two weeks later I still haven't heard if I got the crappy stude...
