I don’t normally get into politics on a public forum, but I need to get some things off of my chest. The latest news about children being separated from their parents at the border appalls me. I have some thoughts. Continue reading “Thoughts on the family separation policy”
Fathers day this year went great! Bacon on a stick at church, got two “Dad rocks!” rocks from each girl (they were in class for both services, so they got to do the project twice.) Got some stuff done around the house, and ended the day with a grilled rib-eye. All in all, I felt loved and cherished.
I have been having a hard time lately, allowing the stress of my job and worries about parenting to affect me more than it really should. This father’s day really lifted my spirits. Praise the Lord for all the good He has placed in my life!

My wife and I really cherish our adult time and if they stay up late, then we don’t get so much of it.

We used it as an incentive. If they both made happy plates, and if they were obedient during bath time and while getting ready for bed, then we’d let them share a room for the night. We even let them have a half hour of “conversation time” before lights out. At first, it seemed like it was going to work… Continue reading “Attempting to share a room”
I’m rebooting my blog, but not without importing some old posts from an old blog of mine that I let rot for years. That one was pretty much 100% spirituality based, but I intend for this one to be more general. I expect that this is going to turn into a Dad blog before long.
Can’t wait to start posting stuff!
