September always bring about the beginning of Autumn and hope for cooler weather to approach. Our annual pilgrimage to foothills of Oak Glen to do some apple picking was now in order. This past weekend we set out to do just that.
A new school year and here we go. First grade–exciting. I remember 1st grade, I had Mrs. Lewis and Mrs. Hill. I still have friends I made in first grade, and now Skyler is taking his first steps into this new unchartered path and I am so excited for him. It’s been a month since he first started and so far it’s been great.
Star Trek – The original series. Over the next few months I will be giving a brief synopsis on each of the the updated Star…
It’s been a year since my Father has passed away. Although I’d like to say it hasn’t been all that bad, but the truth of the matter is that it has been very difficult. I can truly say that it has been the hardest year of my life, a year with the most change, a year that I have learned and grown.
The first thought when I think of my father is one word. Love. The next thought within that first thought is my mother. The two were always one. From the very beginning when they were 17 and 18 years old to his last breath, there was always love. The love for his wife, the love for his children, the love for his grandchildren, and the love for his family and friends.
Last week I was working on a short video of my daughter, Ayden, gabbering in the car and I thought to myself, “My Dad would have loved this!”
He came home with stories of holding a Tarantula, and Python, a gecko that crawled up his arm, a 2-headed snake, Frank the huge water monitor lizard, and Darth Gator, the, um, alligator. “Darth Gator!” I said. Sold. Let’s go check this place out!
The family and I decided it was time to visit one of our favorite destinations during one the our favorite times of the year. Although lately you wouldn’t be able to tell by the weather, it’s fall and so it’s time to journey out to the pumpkin fields and find our perfect pumpkins. The last few weeks we’ve been hit with a heat wave, with temperatures reaching in to the triple digits. Saturday offered a bit a of a respite from the outrageous heat and it felt like autumn, if not, for a brief day.
