JUST HAD ONE OF THE GREATEST DAYS WITH THE FAMILY EVER

Today was one of those days that was just pure unmeasurable enjoyment. The family went to Elitch Gardens (The big local amusement park) and just spent the day there. It was just the four of us and something about it from the get go felt so right. Me and the oldest boy rode just about all the roller... Sign in to see full entry.

Just got back from a great afternoon with my boys.

We got in the car and just headed out. Ended up getting a good hike in and saw the ruins of a mansion in the mountains from 1918. Stopped off and got some ice cream on the way home. Sign in to see full entry.

MY BOYS ARE REDHEADS NOW, REALLY RED

We let the boys dye their hair for the summer. They are both redheads now, but not a natural looking red, neon red. Our youngest,who has really blond hair looks dark pink now. It does make them easier to find in a crowd though. We believe in helping them figure out how to express themselves, so if... Sign in to see full entry.

LEGO GAMES

Legos has a new line that looks to be a fun idea, Lego Games. Xeno just picked up one for the boys so they are now building it. I'll read the rules and we'll play it tonight to see if it is any good. If it's good then we'll have to pick up the other ones. I just love the idea. A game you build and... Sign in to see full entry.

WE GOING TO HAVE WORMS IN DIRT FOR HIS BIRTHDAY

My youngest son just turned 7 and we are having a party for him tomorrow. Well, instead of a normal birthday cake, he wanted to do worms in dirt for everyone. So I just had a real fun time making a cake sized batch of works in dirt. We even found some gummy mushrooms from Wonka candies to use. A fun... Sign in to see full entry.

THIS IS NOT HOW ANY TEACHER SHOWED TREAT ANY STUDENT, EVER

I saw this article here after watching the video here and I was pissed. That is not any way to teach kids anything. It is demoralizing and degrading. It is not relating to student in any manner and is fully indefensible behavior. If I found out that a teacher was calling one of my boys a 'loser' for... Sign in to see full entry.

WE HAD A LOT OF FUN AT THE TRAIN SHOW

My boys and I really enjoyed the train show yesterday. They got to make some trees and do a scenery project that is now part of our layout. I got inspired to get back to work on the set and picked up a water kit to redo the lake that has never looked good. When we got home my oldest and I had fun... Sign in to see full entry.

TOOK THE BOYS ROLLER SKATING FOR THEIR FIRST TIME

My oldest son's friend had a birthday party and they found a roller rink to have it at. I figured that would be a great chance to teach them how to skate. I learned just how old you can feel, cause right now I am feeling very old. I remembered how to skate and had no problem getting myself back in... Sign in to see full entry.
