My Main Man


Got to spend some one-on-one time today with my little homie...

Dude is growing up so fast - I can't believe it!

Well - his hair is... his body will catch up soon I am sure!


He's funny, caring, defiant, independent, strong-willed, loving and all-around GREAT!

I see you Z-Dogg... I see you every day... and I love you more than you know!

Keep Z-Dogging it, Zechie! You do it well!

She Blinded Me With Science...


We got the email telling us to be at the awards assembly on Friday morning because one of our students was receiving an award!


If ya have to miss your favorite exercise class - THIS is the reason to do it!


Meron received the certificate of achievement and was the recognized 5th grader in the category of SCIENCE!

What, what, what?!?!

I am so proud of this girl!


She has been working SO HARD the past few weeks on ALL of her school work - but I know she has developed a particular love for her science class.

And to top it all off - her science project was also chosen for the science fair that day too!

A couple of her friends were recognized too... and we were proud of 'em all!

Meron... daddy sees you and I am so proud of you, sweet girl!

Way to end the year strong, Meron!

The End Is Near


Today we hosted our 2nd Annual "Last Day of School Grill Out in the Circle Bash" with a group of classmates of the goofballs (and the goofballs too of course)...

Because we're headed out of town as a family and missing the last two days of school next week - we had to push the celebration up a week earlier...

But these guys still had a blast!


There was whiffle ball, chalk drawing, necklace making, hot dogs, chips, sodas, Oreos and ice cream sandwiches!

But mostly there was laughing, singing, smiling, joking and having fun!

Totally grateful for this group of kids and the sheer joy of just hanging out!

Congrats on a GREAT school year guys - can't wait to do it again next year!

Look... Now I'm Daddy!


This girl here... she is a trip.

She came out of her LONG bath soak of de-tangling her hair -marched into my office with her hair pulled down by her chin and announced:

"Look...now I'm daddy!"
she keeps me smiling - no doubt.

And she is the beard police and refuses to allow me to cut it off!

Stay crazy... and hairy... Meron!

Another Season Behind Us


That's right... Meron's looking in the rear-view mirror at another volleyball season come and gone!


This girl LOVES this sport...


And I was impressed this year at how much work she put in!

She played up on the competitive team and it was definitely a step up... and she rose to the occasion!


I mean look at her...

Looking like a strong athlete not to be messed with!

And... she rocked some dope socks all season!


She played with a great group of girls who quickly became friends... and some great coaches who legit cared about them!


She was proud of herself this season - and so were mommy and daddy!

way to play Meron... can't wait til next season!

Colorado Spring (Almost Summer)


In what supposedly is a "freak happening" - we woke up to this craziness outside this morning!


it was almost 12 inches of heavy, wet, white stuff all over the place!

My work was delayed 2 hours... the kids school was cancelled.

That's right...

A snow day 10 days before June!


Z-Dogg found it absolutely unacceptable!


I mean - do you blame him?

the pool opens up on Monday!

And even though I LOVED running in it... I have to agree with him on this insanity!


He didn't let it keep him down though... instead he flexed in its face!

And real talk - it was almost all gone by this evening and the warm temps and sun are coming right back!

But seriously...

Go home, Colorado... you're drunk!

Futbol es Terminado


Another season of soccer came to an end this past weekend as Mebbie wrapped up her spring soccer season with a final game!


I love watching Mebbie play her sports...


Her long, lean athletic self looks right at home out there!


And the competitor in her LOVES being out there too!


I love some of the stuff this game has taught her - like taking a knee when an opponent gets hurt on the field...

Or cheering on the other team as well - something her coach does every game!


He's a great guy, with a great heart out there coaching for the right reasons!

And he LOVES Mebbie!


Matter of fact - dude loves his whole team - that he he has worked hard to keep together for several seasons!

And Mebbie loves it all too!


So what do ya do to celebrate another successful soccer seson in the books?

Ya eat a donut bigger than your head - that's what!

Excellent season, Mebski Love!
