Hey there everyone! First, we want to thank everyone for checking the blog as often as you do. As I think that I mentioned when we started this little experiment, we wanted to provide a place where friends and family members could check in on us. Since we can't make it home very often, and e-mailing pictures can be problematic, we set this up so that people can check back whenever they want, and not have their inbox inundated with a bunch of pictures of Amy and Matt cooking out, for instance. As you can see from the Site Meter at the bottom of the page, we've had quite a few hits (2,398 as of this writing). We try to update this as often as possible, but as you can see, only the most exciting things in our life make it to the blog, so you can imagine the stuff that doesn't make the cut.
