We Need a Better System!
I have a to do list. I think there is quite a bit of stuff on it too. I’d post a picture of it, but finding my to do list is the first item on my new to do list. Funny thing about lists, we spend a decent amount of time putting them together, but…Read More
Short and Sweet
This week I’m mixing things up a bit. One quick story and then something cool. The Story I had the opportunity to have a catch with my oldest on Saturday. It’s been a while since we threw the ball around, and it was a perfect Autumn day for it. We talked a little about stuff,…Read More

The Prodigal Son Returns
A lot has happened since my last blog entry. I must apologize for taking a mini sabbatical, but life and such does sometimes get in the way. In 1981 Styx said “I’ve got too much time on my hands”. They obviously didn’t have 2 small children starting their school year at the time. Not to…Read More

On Backbone (In a Good Way)
My boys go to camp during the summer. It’s a great camp and the people there really care about the boys. For their part, the boys love it at camp. Everything’s all hunky-dory and what not. Or at least it was. Last week we found out that there was a child in The Boy’s bunk…Read More
What’s All This About Circles?
If you’ve been following the blog, you should know that my younger son, The Little One, sees the world differently than the rest of the family. We try to reach out to him in all different kinds of ways, music, art, games, and of course, books. One of my favorites to read with him is…Read More
Now, For Something Completely Different.
I like to watch movies. Good ones, bad ones, terrible ones. Sometimes it’s the terrible ones that I end up enjoying the most. Sometimes a movie I love is one that is universally panned. One of my all-time favorite movies received the following reviews: Entertainment Weekly gave it an F and had this to say. The…Read More
