From Tornado to Dorothy. Every spring the preschool does a performance of The Wizard of Oz and this year Sydney was Dorothy (well, one of two Dorothy’s). She was so excited and it’s so great to see her just get up there and belt it out without being nervous at all. We are so proud […]

This year instead of going to the big local Egg Hunt on Saturday we (and when I say “we” I mean Brenda) created a egg hunt in our side yard. The kids didn’t know about it until right before it happened and it was a nice surprise for them. I’m always amazed at seeing the […]

Max has come such a long way in so many different ways. During the winter concert of ¬†Kindergarden Max was nervous and scared and started crying during the show. He didn’t really sing at all and looked like he just hated the whole experience. It was heartbreaking to see as his father. I was there […]

  While watching the Today Show today they had a segment on how people few themselves, and what they focused on when thinking of themselves in the world. It was interesting that they put it in the context of shooting a “selfie”. That initially put me off from even wanting to watch the segment but […]
