High School – Wow

So Sean enters high school next year. Am I really that old? And has time really gone by that fast! Wow… Even worse, we have been doing a lot of running around for both kids getting them to various events almost every day of the week. We had hoped that it would ease up a […]

Halloween Week Update

The kids had a fun week of Halloween Celebrations starting with a school dance on the 23rd. The school’s “Fall Costume Dance” was fun for them. Savannah went as Paris Hilton complete with blond wig and purse with a stuffed Chihuahua. Sean went as a Bank Robber, in all black sweats and a ski mask. […]

Football Week 2

Yes! The Lions finally win! They broke their 20 game losing streak and beat the Washington Redskins by a score of 19 – 14. And you know what, they actually looked quite good doing it. They have been steadily improving each week. While I don’t think they will win a bunch of games or make […]

Football Season Begins

It’s that time of the year again – football season! It’s the best time of the year for me. I really enjoy football on the weekends. For us, that typically means two things: Detroit Lions football and Sean’s football games. Now, we watch lots of NFL games on Sunday (and Monday) but it all revolves […]

Sean Broke His Foot

Monday morning during PE Class, Sean rolled his foot on the basketball court while playing capture the flag. It was hurting him when I picked him up from school, but he was still able to walk on it. I sent him to football practice, but after about a 1/2 hour the coach noticed that he […]

My Poor Blog

Oh my poor little blog. How I have neglected it lately! It’s not really by choice, but things have become hectic around here. It probably sounds old, but with work and the kids now doing something damn near every night, time for Mr Papa’s World has been limited. I have managed to do little “Quick […]

Travel and More Travel

Sorry for the absence, but the new job (within same company) has a bit more travel required. I just recently returned from a trip to Alabama and have another pending trip to Hawaii – yeah, that’s a rough one. Suzanne will be tagging along on that trip. Her parents are going to drive in from […]

Sean’s Football Season Comes to a Close

Today was the last game of the season for Sean’s football team. It ended much the way it began, on a bad note. They lost again today by a score of 45 – 14 to Benson. It also closed out a winless season for the kids. The game today was never close as Benson raced […]

What’s Up With the Lions?

Holy cow, what has gotten into the Detroit Lions lately? They are finally starting to act like an NFL football team. Most of my readers know that I am an avid, loyal, long time Detroit Lions fan and am not afraid to admit it! 😉 They have, unfortunately, been the doormat of the NFL for […]

Sean’s Team Doesn’t Lose

No, they didn’t win either. Technically, I guess they did lose as they had to forfeit only having 10 players for the game today. The weather has been pretty rough today – on and off rain – and several kids didn’t show up or did other things because they didn’t think we would play in […]
