The latest APA Conference was held in Minneapolis over the past few days and my office has been completely empty as most of my coworkers and I helped to staff the event. I was able to guide a mobile workshop focusing on development along the trail system in the city. Luckily it didn't rain on us, but it was pretty cold for the out-of-towners. Hopefully others enjoyed themselves as much as I did - a few attendees from southern California had an especially difficult time with the weather, but the death toll was low.
On a completely unrelated note, look what this University of Minnesota Law School student got himself into last weekend. Okay, so it wasn't his fault...and he somehow attended class the next day! Now that's dedication that even I couldn't promise to the admissions committee. Still on the waitlist by the way, looking forward to getting a response soon.

Having recently abandoned a longtime personal blog, I've decided to start chronicling our family life together instead of individually. I hope that this will help to keep us in more consistent contact with family and friends who we see far too infrequently (you know who you are, we're sorry!). There are links to a couple of other sites that Theresa and I spend our free time on...I know, nerds...check them out if you are interested. To commemorate the beginning of our family blog, I leave you with a photo set of the Bernard Family Halloween Party of 2008. This event used to be an annual gathering when us grandchildren were younger, but this was probably the first such costume party in possibly fifteen years. Note the classic Bush and Cheney outfit sported by my wonderful grandparents, my sister and her husband (not pictured) as Juno and Paulie Bleaker, one of my cousins as an ipod, and yours truly as Elwood Blues (Theresa playing the part of Jake).
