Love travels

I think about the saying "I"ll follow you to the ends of the earth" a lot. As I sit here at a cheerleading competition today all by myself. The oldest daughter has a ballet show coming up so the wife needed to be there, so I'm the cheer Dad today. Not my idea of a... Continue Reading →

Baby Alice

This is going to sound awful, but hear me out.  My favorite sound in the world right now is the sound of my little baby niece Alice crying.  The sound is absolutely breathtaking to me.  She is the spitting image of my oldest when she was a baby, and seeing her brings me right back...

14 Year Old President

My oldest is at a really cool age right now where she questions everything and is super passionate about politics and government.  Last week I got an angry text from her about Trump, about the wall and how mad she is that it is even something being considered.  Safe to say she isn’t all that happy with the news at this...
