The Bear Went Over the Mountain

It has all come full circle. I have become my parents.   Tonight we watched Forrest Gump with the kids. I do not recommend this movie for 8 and 11-year-olds.

Try Not to Suck

So, on a personal note, and I am not speaking on behalf of any particular organization, but I do a lot of volunteering, and i have a full time job, and I worked almost the whole past weekend volunteering for my kids’ school. Like, I stayed home and revamped a website while my family went […]
