Father-Daughter Day

It's not everyday that Kim gets a chance to go to NYC for $20 and also see her sister. That chance came yesterday and thus allowed for Kim to have a break from parenting and the daily routines and a chance to get some girl time, while Georgia and I had the pleasure of spending the day together.

It was rather simplistic in its gloriousness. The morning was spent with waffles (which G will quickly tell you that I can make waffles but not pancakes...the last experiment with those was a bit uneatable) and cartoons...a nap for G...and then a jaunt to feed the ducks at a lake in Laurel.
We went to the Granville Guide Park & Lakehouse.

The G did very well with her aquatic friends, as you'll see below. She rather looks as if she's holding court. Gimmie the bread, lady, wwwahhhhhhk! Most entertaining is the "beat" from the music at the end of the clip. It's coming from the Don Pablo's mexican restaurant a few feet away.



However, suddenly the ducks mount their assault and send the little princess of the hill scurrying!



Afterwards she played on the nearby playground loaded with kids, went to Chick-fil-a for supper and played on their indoor playground with a few kids, and we returned home for a Strawberry Shortcake movie, a bath, and to bed.

In the words of the G, "It was a good day, daddy!"

See You Around, Mike

Three weeks ago, I attended the memorial service of a dear Brother in Christ. Sunday, June 10, would've been his 56th birthday.
I miss my friend. But what's sad is that I didn't miss Mike until he was gone.

At least in the middle of the odd month, but definitely by the last week of it, Mike would always reach out to me with a request. It was usually to load a certain worship music video or some game show music. Sometimes, he needed some specific slides created or sound effects. Mike put a lot of thought into preparing the lessons.

For certain lessons, Mike asked the kids to write something that was bothering them or something that was a sin. Then he had them take hammer and nail to that card and attach it to an old rugged cross. Mike often brought in props to physically connect the Bible stories to the kids. For example, when he dressed as an innkeeper and walked in a wheelbarrow full of fresh cow manure. He was adding the smell of a barn to the lesson just to help set th…

What A Year

With a new year, looking forward and backward is important. Looking ahead is important to set goals and milestones of what to accomplish in the coming year. Reflecting on the past year is important to consider areas of growth and areas needing improvement.

Looking back on 2017, it's hard to ignore that I've been in the swamp of a layoff for half of it. December marked 6 months since the last day of work at AOL and 4 months since separation from the company.

So, what are some lessons I've learned from this journey?
