My first-born, the most curious creature I’ve ever met, a comedian to the core, and possibly the best chef of the next generation

Behold the Tween

Every time we say 12, he corrects us with “tween.” I’m not sure how we got here, but here we are. He’s 12 going on 25. Happy Birthday to our first born, our philosopher and theologian, our soccer player and budding chef, our comedian and tender-hearted animal lover. Jeremy, your intuition is beyond your years, but something tells me it… Read more →

Head gear, here we come

I took the boys to the orthodontist this morning for a second evaluation. The first evaluation was in 2012 and resulted in instructions to have four or five teeth pulled from each boy. We decided to sit on it for a while and see if those teeth fell out on their own. Now, three years later, we have been cleared from teeth pulling… Read more →

Making amends with George Lucas

On account of one sentence mentioning a story idea title, Jeremy’s fan letter got funneled through the legal department and he was sent a letter in response explaining that LucasFilms doesn’t accept any unsolicited submissions. Which is fine, but Jeremy didn’t… Read more →

No more football

It was a hard conversation, but it was a necessary one. Jeremy is no longer able to play tackle football on account of the hearing loss he suffered in the last year. As many of you know, Jeremy was born with a hearing impairment in both ears and was aided at 10 months old. By Kindergarten, he was down to… Read more →

A new video, per Jackson’s request

We need something happy today, don’t we? Jeremy has been practicing archery more often than Jackson, and I’m proud to say he’s gotten quite good. He went outside with the bow and arrow every day last week. Jackson practices too, but he doesn’t have the upper body strength to loose the arrow with any sort of power. His heart is… Read more →
