Happy Birthday, Avery!

Today is my little sister’s birthday. She’s five years younger than me and the third born in my family. Growing up we didn’t really get along. We were pretty different. She also did everything in her power to annoy me and make me mad. Now she’s a mother and we get along a lot better. We talk pretty much every day. It’s more than … Read More Happy Birthday, Avery!

Kids Do the Darnedst Things

Here are a few times my sons taught me that even though they do something crazy, it’s usually my own fault.

This is one of my favorites … Read More Toddlers Around Town

Happy Birthday, Dad

Today is the birthday of the man who fathered me. Though he wasn’t perfect he was a good dad. He was always up for fun. He would tickle us, wrestle with us, joke around with us. He would race us to the car or come up behind us and scare us. He taught me how to shoot a gun and he took me fishing. … Read More Happy Birthday, Dad
