The Strength of Summer

The Strength of Summer Why are summers important? School years are long, arduous, and challenging. Yes, I am aware that “teachers get the summers off”, however, what most people don’t realize is that teachers work at least a summer’s worth extra during the course of a school year.

An Incredible Return

Last night I witnessed an Incredible return. I was treated to a sneak preview of the new Incredibles 2 movie. I was not disappointed. The original graced the screen 14 years ago – before the Captain was even a father. I remember borrowing a friend’s 5 year old so that I could go see it […]

Hauling People, Furniture, and Fun

We didn’t travel over, under, or through the woods. We didn’t go to grandma’s house – though we did take one grandma with us and met another one in Ohio.  And there were no horses, but there was horse power courtesy of the Toyota RAV4. Our holiday season began on a high note. During the […]

Where I Am Going – Part 2

It’s that time of year that people talk about resolutions, but that’s not where I am going. I have goals. There are a few things that I want to attempt in 2018. Some new adventures and some old ones. This Dadlete has a ton of Russell athletic gear and it would be a shame to […]
