I survived my weekend overnight retreat with my junior high youth group! Hooray! Actually, I did more than survive, we had a great time this weekend playing lots of games (of which ‘Hideout’ was clearly the most fun, and I have the bruise to prove it!), studying the Bible and plain just hanging out together. I’m still tired from it though. I feel as if I am getting steadily older. Before I had children, I could do overnight weekends and feel perfectly fine by Monday, but not anymore! In fact, on Saturday, I sent the youth group home, went to my brother’s house (we have a game night every Saturday night) and promptly fell asleep on the hideaway bed at 8:30pm . I cannot remember the last time I fell asleep so early!

On the days that I draw the comic, in the mornings, I usually do things with my children while starting to put the comic together in my head. Well, it was not happening so cleanly yesterday. By the time that I sat down to do the comic, I had to re-read everything that had happened since Chapter 2 began just to get a feel for where comic #53 would be going. I really enjoyed drawing the forest scene in this comic! My forest settings have really improved since comic #3! I have been studying other web comics that have forest settings, such as Inverloch, and Between Two Worlds, and the studying has really paid off! W00t!

Alrighty, I am sure that you have had enough of me patting myself on the back, so Happy Wednesday!








Wow! 12 days since my last rant. I am sorry for the delay. I have a question for all of you. It is busy enough for you? I have been swamped.

I want to take the time here to mention two things. The first is that this site has been hit over 1000 times since we put it up. Thank you too all whom have visited and continue to visit. With out you, there would be no reason for us to do this.

The second thing that I want to mention, is that there are some new accounts on our forum and at least one of those are having problems getting into the system because the email address that they provided is not working correctly. If you have having problems getting into the forums, please email me at Thank you again for making this worth while.

Happy Wednesday!
