same as it everwas
We had a blast after dinner today with a new game we made up using Apple’s iTunes software. Taking turns we all would think of a phrase or a concept to type into the search box and then dance to the 30 second samples that matched that concept. “Cha Cha Cha” was a good one […]
We built up a bunk bed for Tyler and Julia this weekend and have moved them into their own room. They’re ready for it and couldn’t wait to hit the sack tonight. Tyler’s up top and Julia is tucked in below.
We went into Manhattan for Christmas Day, waking up early to open presents and then jumping into the Odyssey (dubbed “Flash” by Tyler) for the drive. It was the first time for me to drive in the city and it was a lot easier than I thought. Yeah, it was Christmas and the streets were […]

Tyler learned an important lesson today. He came up to me over the weekend all excited because he had a new lego car that he wanted to show me. It didn’t look familiar and I asked him where he got the car. When he said he got it from school and I asked him if […]
