Late Sunday update! We celebrated Miles’ birthday tonight–Rich made watermelon margaritas, beef and chicken fajitas with all the fixins, and a peach tart with ice cream for dessert. We’ve found THE BEST peaches at Trader Joe’s! Went back today and bought another box! Here are a few interesting reads from the last week.
School starts tomorrow. I liked this thoughtful piece.
My middle daughter Bonnie ran track in middle school, high school, and college. I spent a lot of time at track meets in cold, wind, rain, and burning hot sun, loving (almost) every minute of it. She was a hurdler so I got a special kick out of seeing these amazing US women win 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place at the Olympics. Awesome!
Discouraging. 🙂 I’m gonna have to step it up!
I worry about my grandkids coming across a gun at someone’s home (we are in Texas, after all). Or another child finding a gun and shooting one of mine by accident. I posted this article on my Facebook page and it garnered a few comments by pro-gun people stating that it’s all about education. I’m sorry, I don’t think education is enough. I hope every parent asks about guns when kids get together at each other’s homes, even if it’s awkward to do so.
We do our boys and men a disservice by asking them to keep their emotions to themselves.
