  • Fun With Guns

    Josh and Phoenix are visiting, so we had some Saturday morning fun time and brought out the big guns. We shot my 30 Carbine, my new .223 AR by MAG Tactical (Josh is awesome), and Josh’s .223 AR. We all had a blast. We were too busy having fun to document a lot of it,…

  • Having a 10 Year Old

    As adults we realize that the age milestones don’t matter as much. You aren’t that different the day after your birthday than the day before it. At ten though, that wasn’t the case, and today my son turns ten. Looking back on his life, I see phases instead of years. The first phase was the…

  • The Bug Zoo – Victoria BC

    So, Xavier is really into animals of any kind. While in Victoria BC we took him to visit the Victoria Bug Zoo. After paying $10 per person (there were six of us) we walked into a pretty small room in the back and were immediately unimpressed. I’m happy to say we were wrong. Our tour…

If you’re easily offended by someone saying “the church” is doing it wrong, or putting blame on religion or those that propagate…

  • Xavier Reading Daniel and the Lions Den

    At the beginning of the year reading was definitely the one place in school that Xavier struggled. Now he’s obviously getting it! I didn’t think to start recording until part way in, but this is Xavier reading a good chunck of Daniel and the Lions Den from his school reading book.

  • Xavier Reading Green Eggs and Ham

    Xavier has been getting so much better at reading! He’s started to really like to read Dr. Suess books (man after my own heart), mainly because he can now read well enough to make the rhymes sound “like a song”. I took a quick video of him reading part of Green Eggs and Ham. The…

  • Xavier’s Mario Themed Birthday

    Yesterday we had Xavier’s birthday party, and it was a blast. He wanted it to be themed like Super Mario Brothers, and Christen really outdid herself. She had Super Mario Brothers balloons, centerpieces, piñata, etc. She even did themed food: Thanks to everyone that came! It all turned out great and X had a blast!
