Happy 10th birthday Noah

Today may youngest child turns 10 years old. That makes me feel both old and happy. I’m so proud of all my kids and the people they are growing into. I’m sure this won’t last many more years but for now he is one of my best friends. Soon he’ll get too old and notContinue reading “Happy 10th birthday Noah”

Lonely Working Distributed

Recently I wrote about having connections with my distributed team. Part of that was because people have assumed it must be lonely working from home without seeing people. It’s been rare that I’ve ever felt this way much because of my team but also because I have a great network of family and friends IContinue reading “Lonely Working Distributed”

My favourite way to relax

Tomorrow morning I start back to work after a week off. Previously I had a bad habit of at least checking in on work a few times while I was supposed to be away. This time though I disconnected almost entirely. Not even coming into Slack to socialize with my team. We spent most ofContinue reading “My favourite way to relax”

Trying baseball

If you’ve been following along at all you’ll know that basketball has been the main sport for Noah. He loves it and constantly wants to be playing or watching it. He’s tried other sports before when he was younger but none that stuck. For a while I’ve been wanting him to try something else againContinue reading “Trying baseball”

Toronto March break vacation

We’ve been waiting since Christmas to take this trip. This year we surprised everyone with tickets to see a Toronto Raptors game over March Break. This may just become new tradition. We haven’t really done anything big for March break before, but this ended up being a great vacation. We debated for a short bitContinue reading “Toronto March break vacation”

When you find something you like, buy two

That at least seems to be what some hotel and Airbnb decorators think. On our summer vacation in 2015 we stayed in a shifty hotel just outside of New York. I found it funny to find two pictures the exact same beside each other. We arrived at our Airbnb last night, everything is really niceContinue reading “When you find something you like, buy two”

Nick De Palma is a class act

Tonight was the final home game for the Acadia Axewomen and Axemen. These student athletes are such great role models. They have come to help run practices, run camps, and really help foster his love for basketball. Tonight was a bit of a sad night as this was the last home game that Noah’s favouriteContinue reading “Nick De Palma is a class act”
