My second favorite parenting moment caught on film. This girl has definitely been listening to her parents. Or one of them 🙂
As we prepared to decorate the baby room for baby number 1, I looked at some wall art to put up but it was all so expensive. So I decided hey, it’s not everyday you have open walls you can just paint on! why not just play around and see if some DIY art is a viable option, and if not or we mess up we can always paint over it. But it actually turned out great! And it was super easy. Basically I used a cheap projector I picked up at Walmart to project whatever google image or collage of images I wanted onto the wall and then just traced over it. So simple yet effective. Who knew?
Inspiring. Pretty cool how much it seems they care.
This is my all time favorite dad video. I can only hope that one day I get to have a conversation half as entertaining with my daughter.
After a long day in the trenches struggling to take care of my family, sacrificial leadership can amount to a herculean task. Sometimes it’s tempting to think I’m being slighted or that it shouldn’t be this hard and to start casting blame or to be bitter. But I constantly have to remind myself: it’s not supposed to be easy. It can be, and some days are easier than others, but at the end of the day we’re men, and God has called us to the struggle.
Had to change a tire today and Gentry so graciously decided she wanted to help. Now if I could only get it to stick for when she’s a teenager…

I love the idea of dad/daughter dates even from a young age. I think fun one on one adventures is important to bonding and attachment not only for the kids but for parents too. I took Gentry on a bike ride around the neighborhood in her ridiculous getup and explored the park and the little pond. Not a bad way to pass the time and turns out…it ended up being pretty fun 🙂
Stole her Sister’s Bath Towel. She looks pretty pleased with herself.
They’re still a little young but I figured what the heck I’d give it a shot. Grace (the youngest) is obviously doing it right. Also I would like to note, Star Wars is in fact acceptable reading material for babies.
