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”

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”

That proud teary eyed feeling

Tonight I was digging through Noah’s backpack looking for his homework book that goes back and forth between school. It wasn’t there, but I found a little piece of paper buried underneath his snow pants. Apparently a few weeks ago as part of a smaller group of the class they did an exercise where theyContinue reading “That proud teary eyed feeling”

Work, family, basketball

Seems like a lot of the posts I end up writing these days are either about work, family, or basketball. That makes a lot of sense because that is basically my life and I’m happy with all of it. There is a really nice balance with everything right now that hasn’t always been present. I’veContinue reading “Work, family, basketball”

Epic Road Trip 2018

Eye have had a tough week

For over a week now I’ve been suffering with an eye infection. Just before last weekend my right eye started itching and I could tell something wasn’t right. From there over the weekend it continued to get worse swollen and red. I’ve had eye infections a few times over the years and usually over theContinue reading “Eye have had a tough week”

Childhood Excitement

Last night I had a bit of a strange dream. In it, I was a young child again, probably about Noah’s age 9-10, and I randomly ran into and was able to meet Fred VanVleet. For those of you who don’t know Fred VanVleet is a basketball player for the Toronto Raptors, and someone IContinue reading “Childhood Excitement”

Fourteen Years

To my best friend Jen, There isn’t a day which goes by where I don’t want to spend it with you. For the past fourteen years you’ve stuck with me through many ups and downs. The whole time you’ve been my rock that I lean on, encouraging me to take risks, and holding me upContinue reading “Fourteen Years”

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire

Today involves picking up some last minute supplies, Christmas Eve church services, and prepping some of the mountains of food we’re going to consume over the next few days. Caile and I are making some pie crusts so they’ll be ready forContinue reading “Chestnuts roasting on an open fire”

2017 Automattic Grand Meetup

Another Automattic Grand Meetup has come and gone. It is always such an amazing, overwhelming, stressful, fun, exciting, unique, and tiring experience. This year was no exception to that. Shortly before the meetup the team I’m on added three new people. That is exciting, always fun to get to meet and hangout with more awesomeContinue reading “2017 Automattic Grand Meetup”
