Landon was one the the team captains for his sixth soccer game of the season this afternoon.


Landon had a long drive down field before he passed off to a teammate.


Mr. Long-stride getting ready to kick the ball.


Another hard kick to move the ball up field. Landon almost scored a goal during a fracas in front of the goal. After a scoreless first half, the boys went on to win 2-1.

Will had his seventh basketball game of the season this morning. So far, his team is undefeated. Here Will is showing perfect jump shot form during warm-ups. Note his left hand is not "thumbing" the ball!


In a lucky photo opportunity, Will showed great hustle chasing after a loose ball that was headed almost perfectly my way.


Will and his coach pointing out a fine point of play on the court.


Will stole the ball and lead the fast break down the court.


Will scored a goal on a great turn-around jump shot!


Will in action with his awesome turn-around jump shot. Way to go Will!

Landon hit another coach-pitch to go 2 for 3 for the day. I have no idea where this bat and helmet came from.


Safe at first base.


Two thumbs-up from second base where Landon was left stranded. He played a great game. It was a good start to the new season.

The bedroom wall above my bed while growing up...nous sommes tous français aujourd'hui.

Last night in Paris, France, and its suburb Saint-Denis, at lease 129 people were murdered and more than 350 were injured by three separate explosions and six mass shootings in yet another series of attacks by Muslim extremists.

The day before ISIS committed "one of the worst terror attacks in European history," President Obama declared ISIS "contained."

Like most dogs, Amber loves playing fetch.


Occasionally, she will get her timing just right and catch her toy in the air.

Last September, Drew started learning Spanish on Duolingo. Today, he finished his Spanish tree in all gold! Duolingo is free language learning program with over 100 million registered users across the globe. Finishing his Spanish tree approximately equates to an entire first year of college Spanish. Drew worked incredibly hard on his Spanish every day (he has a 245 day streak). Great job Drew, congratulations!

4th of July 2015


Our 4th of July started out with a neighborhood parade with the help of the local fire department.


Everyone got to take turns checking out the inside of the fire truck. ("Fire trucks" have large mechanical ladders that extend from the truck but do not come off, while "fire engines," or pumpers, carry hose, tools, pump water and have smaller detachable portable ladders.)


Will, Landon and Drew on the front of the fire truck enjoying some patriotic rocket pops.


The boys playing some Yu-Gi-Oh while waiting for the fireworks to begin.


I've taken a lot of fireworks photos in the past (2012, 2013, 2014) so, this year, just this one which I thought showed the atmosphere pretty well (I like guy in the corner taking a picture with his cell phone). The fireworks will always be remembered for the 30 minute break during the fireworks shortly before the finally.

Another Lost Tooth


Landon lost another tooth. He's not in pain, that's a smile combined with, "show me your tooth."


I have no idea how teeth work...must be magic...and magnets...definitely magnets.

Drew has a weekend scouting canoe trip coming up and he's never been canoeing so he, Will and I decided to take a little trip down the Illinois River in preparation.


We canoed the short course which is supposed to take two to four hours. It took us just 50 minutes.


The trip was flawless. No one even got wet. It was the perfect prep for Drew's canoe-camp-out.

Floral Haven had over 3400 flags set out all over their grounds; one for ever veteran buried there. Local boy scouts help take down the flags each year. This year Drew and I helped out.


The process starts with retiring the Garrison Flag.


Afterward, we were off to a far corner to start taking taking down flags and poles.


Each flag has a metal tag identifying the person the flag represents.


After the flags are all taken down, they are cleaned and inspected for any that are too worn and need replacement. Many hands make light work and with the hundreds of scouts present, it took less than two hours before all the flags were down. We had a great time and look forward to returning next year.

Landon's team played their sixth game of the season this evening. Landon did a great job playing third base and went one for two at bat. Unfortunately, the other team was just too much and our boys lost 13-19.

Drew's team played their eighth soccer game of the season today. It was a tough game against an undefeated team. The other team simply out powered our boys which resulted in a 0-5 loss.
