Family Geneology

There is a family geneology site up now.  At the moment, it’s just Dolnick, Spevakow, and Hoffman family information.  Eventually I might get a data file from a Humphries family member and upload it.

If anyone wants to access it, either leave me a comment, or send me an email, or use the link on the homepage to request an account.

What’s Up with the Kids?

Aaron is done with JV soccer, and the AYSO regular season is over.  Tomorrow is a final practice / clinic (to help work those skills) and then Sunday is the big city-wide tournament.  After that, five months of no soccer.  AYSO starts again in April, and JV boys doesn’t run again until next fall.

Ethan and Justin are both still in young athletes, going once a week to learn more Special Olypics stuff.  We had a lot of fun at the Special Olympics in Normal this summer, and looking forward to it again next year.  They’re also both in a swim class on Thursdays.

Ethan is taking a cooking class after school.  He picked two extra-curricular activities (besides AYSO) – intramural soccer, and cooking.  He says after the last class, he’ll cook us all dinner.  I, for one, am looking forward to it.

All this will be over with by mid-November, then we have Thanksgiving and then the “winter holidays”.  Then a few months of rest, and it all starts over again in the spring.

New Theme

I’ve implemented a new theme.  I think it’s well readable, doesn’t have the notorious “free smileys” and “free e-cards” links that some themes force on the website, and is a little more aesthetic than the last one.  Let me know what you think.

We Made The Jump

We have now migrated to our new hosting company, and migrated our blog from Moveable Type to WordPress.  The theme is new … and will likely change again, I’m tinkering around with them, trying to figure out which one I like.  This one’s better for navigation, but it’s a little… er, “wintery”.

First, a big shout-out to Dreamhost, our new webhost.  They made it very easy to get everything set up, and saved me about 50% off what I was paying our previous host.

Here’s what made it:

This page – http://famille.org (no link – you’re here!).  The main webpage will continue to be in weblog format, all the better to host my various rantings and ravings and doting over my children.

Kelly’s Travels – http://kellystravels.famille.org – despite this website / blog having gone through about a dozen hosts (including being hosted on my own servers at one time), Kelly’s Travels remains the same today as it was when he wrote it.

Gallery – http://gallery.famille.org – is there, but empty.  Links in the blog to pictures pages won’t work anymore.  I will probably upload some of the more recent pictures (like our summer vacation, and the Newport pictures) soon.  But I’ve got a lot on my plate right now.

Enjoy, let me know what you think.

Prepare for Picture Gallery Reset

As noted in the past, we’re moving our web site to a new host.  The main page (“blog”) will transfer directly and easily from the current host to the new host, when we switch over.  But the family picture gallery will not.  It will reset to empty, and I will have to upload all new pictures.  Given my current project load at home, it will more likely just be new pictures (i.e. all the old pictures will stay gone.)

So if there are any pictures you want to download for posterity, do so now.  The changeover will happen in about a week or so (figure, end of October.)
