Five Gallons of Iced Tea

Posted by Eric (June 27, 2007 at 4:34 pm)

Iced Tea BrewingI am probably one of the few non-restaurateurs who needs to know how to make five gallons of iced tea, but if there are any other A/C-hating, do-it-yourselfer fathers of large families out there, here’s my recipe—which you see my sons Nate and Sam and I testing out one evening here to the right.

But first, an explanation. Last week I took vacation time to build a large playhouse/fort in the backyard. I’ll post an article about that soon, once all the loose ends are tied up. But it was pretty hot last week, and it’s been hot all month. We finally got sick of making five and six pitcher of iced tea a day and decided to make a whole lot all at once.

About the Vandalism . . .

Posted by Eric (June 7, 2007 at 2:38 pm)

Eric and WilliamSeveral people have expressed curiosity about the reference to “vandalism” in my sketchy notes to Sarah Paraskeva’s birth story. I’m impressed that people are actually reading the notes, which are there to help me finally finish the full account of her birth story.

Unfortunately, I could not get a photo of the “vandalized note” in question to come out. But I do have a picture of me with “Baby William” which will give you an idea of what kind of state I was in after three days pacing around hospital rooms. William was fashioned from a blown-up surgical glove, onto which I drew a face: the thumb became William’s nose; the fingers his Mohawk.

William was “born” when my seven other children were visiting us the evening after Sarah was born. For some reason they let the whole crew in there at once, and Daddy got rather silly. Another silliness was my “vandalism” of the note that had been taped onto Sarah’s bassinet.

Sarah Paraskeva ScheidlerWe’re back from the hospital and Sarah Paraskeva’s personal website is ready! Read all about her birth, get all the vital stats, learn about her unusual name, and best of all see lots of pictures of my littlest little girl.

God is good! Praised be His Holy Name forever! In his mercy he has blessed me to be the father of six girls—no fewer than six! Nor has he forgotten to give me sons, two of them, older brothers to help me nurture protect these precious sisters and daughters.

I invite you to share my joy by meeting this newest Scheidler daughter.

Sarah Paraskeva Scheidler . . .

Sarah Paraskeva Ultrasound. . . was born today at 12:15 p.m. after a long, slow labor that began late Tuesday evening. We’ve scarcely slept these last three days, and unfortunately all my photos of this beautiful little girl are trapped on my camera, for I write this from the library at Rush University across the street from the hospital. But here’s an ultrasound from last week as a teaser, and I’ll say more in a couple days when we’re back home and a bit more rested.
