Bonk = Staples

Jess, I and the boys went over to one of our youth leaders house a couple weeks ago. We hung out and ate dinner and had desert with them. It was a lot of fun spending time getting to know some of those who will be instrumental in our ministry here.

Towards the end of the evening Jacob was getting a little tired and was sitting on this ottoman thing and he was acting goofy and kept fall off.

Of course I said, " hey stop acting goofy your are going to fall off and hit your head."

Sure enough flop, bonk and the screaming started. So I picked him up. No big deal he has hit his head a gazillion times. It is by far the toughest spot on his body. The next thing I know is Jess is screaming something about gushing blood. I look and I am turning red quickly. So my first reaction is to run in the kitchen as to make sure that we don't get blood on the carpet. We apply some pressure and go to the bathroom to check it out. Yep, sure enough he gonna need stiches. ( I left out about 12 pages of Jess yell and moaning about her little boy and all the high pitched panicing she was doing)

So we take him to the hospital and he gets four staples to the head. He was great in the hospital.

He kept saying, " when is the nursey come and give me special medicine."

He was pretty sweet to his mommy on the ride to the hospital.

He was saying, "It's ok mommy. I all better now. I all better mommy. Yeah, it's better."

I kept wondering who was consoling who on the ride to the hospital.

So for the next week each time that we passed someone Jacob would ask them if they would like to see his staples. So here I am in the middle of walmart while blue haired old ladies have his head pinned to the car checking out his injury. He was reeling in the candy out of grandmas purses through out the isle of walmart.

From 4-wheelers to Tractors

Yeah you heard right. I moved. Yep, I have made the transition from four wheeler to tractors. Now in stead of sitting at four way stops watching four wheelers going by I watch as tractors pass by as if it were normal to jump on your John Deer or Case tractor and run to Walmart Supercenter for a dozen eggs.

Now I am sure your mind is full of flat, barren grid work of farmland that would resemble the Iowa or Nebraska. Well it looks nothing like that. Sparta area is full of rolling farmland broken up with thick hardwoods. My parents live just outside of town. They are two houses from the city limits. Now when I say city limits I am not talking about Hibbing. There the city limits were huge. From my understanding it is the largest town per square mile in MN. Here are a couple pictures of Sparta. This is what I see when I look out my parents window.

That is all for now. Coming soon....jacob recieves four staples to the head and I have pictures.

We moved

Well we made it. Here is a picture of New Life Assembly of God. This is a picture from the parking lot. the front faces the highway. Just on the otherside of the tall pines. The move went well. Luke O. was a huge help to us.
We have been in Sparta for about three weeks now. Things are starting to feel a little normal. I still fill as though I am visiting my family for vacation. Maybe that is because I am living with my parents. THey have been great! They travel to church every weekend so they are hardly home.

We have been looking at house for the past month. Last week we put a agreement on a house and we are still working out the conditions as week speak. We should know if we have an accepted offer in a couple weeks at the latest I hope. Then of course there is still the all the inspections, financing and contingencies to work through before we close. It is very hard to keep you heart out of the process. Your home is really just an extension of your heart, so it is hard not to fall in love with a home.

Here is a pic of Jacob and I in our butt stinking huge uhaul. The way that I got the truck was very amazing.

I went to some backwooods auto garage in Mt. Iron to pick up my reserved truck. Well some 70 year old guy new nothing about our reservation. The 26 foot truck was out in the parking lot. He tried to log on to Uhaul to check to see if he had any new reservations but he had never used the computer before. So after he spent about 20 minutes on the phone with his boss (young guy who uses the computer) he asked me if I could come back in a couple hours. I told him NO I am MOVING and am going to leave with that 26foot uhaul in about 30minutes. So he said you try and see if you can log on to the computer. So I logged on, and when through the process of registering myself. Runing my own creditcard and printed out all the necessary paper work. I signed a copy and left it on the desk. I grabbed the key and told the old iron ranger who was now under a vehicle smoking a cigarette that I was going to take the truck now. He mumbled a few cuss words and ended with becareful. I asked him how much he gets paid an hour he said $19 an hour I said Make the check for $19 to Aaron Broberg.

That was a great expierence to have as I prepared to move away from the Iron Range. I have been missing all of my friends in Hibbing alot lately. It is strange to be so closely knit with some many people and then be completely seperated from in a day. Weird. Hibbing was a great place to live and ministry. I will always have a soft spot for Hibbing. It was and is a great place to be a pastor.

Wow Another Kid

Today was the day. Levi Mark James Broberg was born at 7:50am on Tuesday, December 27th. A pretty great day as I look back on it.

I saw things today that I should never see again. First off C-sections are brutal. I always had this idea that doctors were neat and clean and orderly. But what I witnessed today destroyed that idea. Not that our doctor was poor or unskill to the contrary I think she is very skilled. To sit and the foot of the bed and see what actually goes on during a C-Section will make your head spin. It gave me a greater appreciation for how God has given our body the ability to heal.

One minute I am watching my wife being sew up with something that looks like it was used to create Frankenstien, and 4 hours later she is eating a McFlurry hanging out with a bunch of people. AMAZING. Even more unbelieveable is that in 3-6 weeks she will be moving around nurturing the boys she brought into the world. God was right we are fearfully and wonderfully made. I will leave you with a picture of me and my new born son.

Into the Hospital

Jessica and I are going into the hospital this morning for her C-section. Next time you hear from us it will be with new about the baby.

Merry Christmas

Today is Christmas Day so I thought I would give everyone a brief overview of what has gone on. Yesterday we broke all traditions and opened a few gifts in the morning. I of course blamed this on Jacob's desire for presents but really it was just me wanting to see him open some stuff. So we spent the morning enjoying a few presents and homemade cinnamon rolls.

Later on that evening we went to Christmas Eve service and then off to the Williamson's house for snacks and a few presents. It was great to go over to their house. Sue had a spread of food that was to die for. It was really great.

The Williamson's all got Christmas Eve PJ's. I got a picture of them next to the tree. From left to right it's Sydney, Jessica, Brittany, and Broc in the back.
It was very nice to spend time with teh Williamson's over Christmas. It was a great Christmas present to be able to be with a family that treats you just like family even when you are not their family. We had a great Christmas eve with the Williamsons. Speaking of presents I did get a a shop vac, Garage logic Cd, Sweet coffee grinder, and lots of other Caribou paraphenalia. Over all it was a great Christmas.
Tommorow we are going to transition from mellow relaxed Christmas house to "lets get ready for baby house" . Bring on another kid.

BTW if you need a Christmas laugh check out these two goof balls YoYo & Hoops.
