Hockey Night In Philly

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

Editor’s Note: If you’re sick of hearing me brag about my kids, kindly skip this post. There’s probably some bloggy goodness going on over at First In. Or not. Last night, the boys started their second week of hockey. Erik is in the 4-7 year old division, and Kyle is in the 7-10 division. Erik’s [...]

Hockey’s Back!

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

Well, for the kids, that is. Kyle and Erik will be playing another season in the Bustleton Bengals street hockey league. It has been something they have both been talking about for a while. The first games begin tonight, with Erik playing the early game and Kyle playing the later one. Kyle was hoping he [...]

Goin’ Dutch

Monday, July 11th, 2011

Yesterday we took the kids to Dutch Wonderland in Lancaster, PA. It’s a family amusement park that caters to younger children. I’ve never been there, but the missus has, and it came highly recommended. What better way to spend a day off? The park is about a 90-minute drive away, so we left early to [...]

Getting His Kicks

Sunday, June 12th, 2011

So, yesterday was the last day of Erik’s spring soccer season. It was also trophy day, as you can see above. Erik had another terrific year and was blessed with talented teammates and a terrific coach. Coach Tony has been with him for two seasons now, and Erik would crawl through broken glass for him. [...]

We’re Putting The Band Back Together

Friday, May 27th, 2011

Earlier in the year, Kyle came home and said the school band performed in front of the students. Afterward, they gave out fliers for anyone who was interested in joining. Kyle brought it home and raved about the performance, saying he wanted to be a part of it. This came as a bit of a [...]

Need Some Rapid-Fire Prayers, Please

Friday, April 29th, 2011

By the time you read this, we’ll be on our way to the hospital. Kyle, my oldest son, has been battling what we thought was a pimple for almost two weeks now. After a few days, he started scratching in – it’s on his chin – and it started to get bigger and bigger. We [...]

Overnight Thread

Sunday, April 10th, 2011

I figured the overnight thread was the perfect place to brag about the kids. Today focuses more on Kyle, because he had the sports day to end all sports days. He had two lacrosse games today – one at 9am and one at 10. We had about 90 minutes to get home, eat lunch, get [...]

PSC Blue Kickers: 2011 Philly Indoor Champs!

Sunday, March 27th, 2011

I thought about giving this a big, suspenseful write-up, but honestly, it wasn’t a suspenseful game. We found out that we were playing Bridesburg in the title game because they beat the undefeated Holy Terrors in overtime. That was (hopefully) good news for us, because we beat Bridesburg 5-0 earlier in the season. When we [...]

Tales Of The Kids

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

Last week, Kim wrote this in the comments section: “I’m waiting on baby girl pictures and stories here.” Apparently, I have been spending all of my time blogging about my two oldest boys, while Kevin and Julia have been given short shrift. So here’s an update. Julia still isn’t sleeping through the night. She’s the [...]

Yeah, More Bragging

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

So, the boys’ indoor soccer continued this weekend, and as usual, they both played spectacularly. Kyle – above, during outdoor season – earned another shutout with a 6-0 victory. Kyle’s team is still undefeated, with four shutouts and only four goals against in seven games. Next week is the regular season finale, and the playoffs [...]
