Historical Post- Jan 30, 2011

 Hello all!!
It has been over a year since we have last updated the Collier Family blog. Far too long indeed. Well to sum it all up, we have been busy beavers! Here is the update: I left working as a salesmen for Wonder bread going on two years ago now. Save a few months. Since then Christie and I have gone back to college. We are students at Idaho State University going on our third semester back. College life with a family is tough, not only do I attend school most of the day, but I work nights at the University as well. Consequently I'm not around as much as I would like. As a full time custodian I get state benefits as well as the employee discount. Samuel is eight now, doing well. Still in scouts, loves video games. I'm trying to talk him into coming to Martial Arts training with me.  Zoe is five, loves cheer leading and princesses, and Jacie, now two, seems to love what ever big brother and sister are doing. She does enjoy dance and cheer like her big sister. They grow so fast. School is a little rough, but at less than six hundred dollars per semester for the two of us in tuition (books not included), I'm not going to complain! We do try to break up the madness of school with activities that we like, Christie has taken Yoga, and swimming so far, and I have been taking Judo. The classes help keep us sane, and fit. Judo put me out of commission for a little while though, at the end of November I dislocated my left elbow completely in a freak sparring accident. The road to recovery has been mostly smooth sailing, however it has its bumps along the way. Currently I am in physical therapy, no surgeries required thus far. And I am able to be partially active on the Judo team once again. Christie has been working on weekends, though with number four on the way for us I'm not sure how much longer she will want to continue working. After some motivation from Christie, I have been working a little bit lately on getting the blog back up and running, a slight revamp to the whole site. I'm now including some YouTube videos, family related or otherwise. Hope all is well in 2011 for you!
