Back to School!

Back to School!

In case you couldn’t tell from oh, say, every single Facebook post this week, Augusta kids have returned to school. To say that I’m excited for them to go back would be an understatement. To say they they’re excited to get back would be a lie. It’s not that I want my kids to go read more

Hot Fun In The Summertime

Hot Fun In The Summertime

As summer break is winding down and it’s time to start getting into “back to school” mode, I often look back to the things I wanted to do this summer that didn’t get done. Although this list is mostly comprised of fun things for my kids, this tradition didn’t just come along with the arrival read more

Publicly Shaming My Kids, It’s What I Do

Publicly Shaming My Kids, It’s What I Do

Spectacular embarrassment is my specialty. Ever since elementary school, I was good at embarrassing myself in astounding ways. Sometimes life likes to show me that I haven’t lost my touch. Last week I was provided the opportunity to prove that I haven’t lost my magic. I’m at No. 2’s second football camp for the summer, read more

There is Power in Positivity

There is Power in Positivity

Ah yes, the positivity quote! They can be a little irritating at times. Personally, I love them. A good “What defines us is how well we rise after falling” or “Dare to live your dreams,” I’m a sucker for all of that stuff. I posted one myself recently. To make it worse, it was from read more

A Father’s Day Thought, A Few Weeks Late

A Father’s Day Thought, A Few Weeks Late

I’ve been going back and forth on whether I should write this article or not. On one hand, it’s a family matter and maybe should be kept that way. On the other hand, that’s what my column is all about: life. My life, specifically, and if just one person can identify with me or take read more

I’m a Wimp and My Kid is Too!

I’m a Wimp and My Kid is Too!

It takes a big man to admit this. Or, at least, I like to think it does: I’m a wimp. There. I said it. No, it does not feel better to get it off of my chest. If you’re one of my friends from school, this does not surprise you. I have never been a read more

Stories from Camp

Stories from Camp

I come to you with a report from Matt Ryan Pro Camp… kinda. It was a one-day camp, so it’s really already come and gone, but it sounded better to say I was reporting from camp. By the way, if you have a child in sports, there are a ton of camps like this that read more

Happy 4-0, Bro

Happy 4-0, Bro

So this week is kind of a big week. No. 2 got a coveted spot in Matt Ryan’s Pro Camp. Yes, that Matt Ryan. I don’t know who’s more excited, him or me. Right after that, Nos. 2 and 3 are getting on a plane to visit their grandparents in Montana for two and a read more

Some Things I Learned on Family Vacay

Some Things I Learned on Family Vacay

I took the fam to the gulf coast over the weekend. We were joined by my wife’s cousin and her kids to make a total of eight people: three adults and five kids. We were outnumbered. Surprisingly, not much went wrong. Given my Grizwaldian luck, I was very surprised. No car trouble, no bad weather, read more
