Putting In WORK!

I absolutely LOVE when I stumble up on Meron in the middle of evening hair prep!

And she is ALWAYS a good sport about it when I bust the camera out...

And let's just admit it - the girl and her hair are AMAZING!

And I'll never not be impressed with how much hard work she puts in to keep her beautiful hair looking healthy and awesome like sh edoes!

Another night - another head of hair prepped to be slept on!

Way to go, Meron!

Daddy loves every hair on your head, girl!

Best Buds!

Z-Dogg got to have a buddy swim date with one of his best buds today...

These guys are a hoot together!

And at one point they had the pool almost to themselves!

On the way out Z-Dogg said to Laura:

"Will is my BEST friend!"

Buddy bonds are the best!

Party On!

It's past midnight and I just picked this girl up from a party.

She's growing up and it's happening fast!

And I don't like it!

But guess what Meron...???

You'll always and forever be my baby girl!

Unlearning and Learning to Relearn

I am so proud of these two right here!

For a while now... Z-Dogg has been really struggling to progress in reading.

And after a whole bunch of testing from a whole bunch of specialists and doctors who care a whole bunch about him... we got us some answers...

Z-Dogg is Dyslexic.

And while that may have seemed daunting and scary and intimidating at first... Laura has jumped straight into learning all she can about it in order to help our little man suceed!

And some of that means unlearning the way he was being taught and relearning a new way to help him learn.

With the help of some new methodology and curriculum stuff - we're ALREADY seeing improvements!

And Zechie is loving it!

Stick with it Z-Dogg... you're gonna do big things in life and tackling this issue is just the beginning!

Read on, Zechie... READ ON!

Three Little Warriors

These guys right here... they ain't to be trifled with.

This week - the world tried though.

Peers coming at them sideways - at each one of them - for their beliefs.

But this camp don't be playing!

Each one of them managed it so maturely, so perfectly... honestly better than most of the adults that are placed around them would know how to...

And they managed to preserve dignity and friendships too!

I couldn't be any more proud of them for how they choose to walk out their beliefs!

Never stand down, Camp Hoffman... NEVER STAND DOWN!

How Ya Livin'?

They were giving out some free shirts today at work so I snagged a few for the whole fam...

Because these shirts shout out loud the way we wish, pray and hope to be living.

Act Justly... Love Mercy.

Represent, Z.... REPRESENT!!
