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.

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”

Last night I arrived home from this years Automattic Grand Meetup which was held in mountainous Whistler Village in British Columbia. The crisp air, scenery, and mouth watering food all add to the experience, but as always it’s the people that make it special. One example of this shows itself when I gave my flashContinue reading “Happy Birthday Noah: A Flash Talk”
