Getting To Try Some New Things

I’ve been a blogger now for about 408 posts, and I’d like to think I’ve learned a thing or two.  Maybe three.  No, more like two, who am I kidding?  But hey, even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while. This is Beth’s first year teaching writing at Medway Middle, and she has …

I read a list (blog readers love lists) of the six ways Laura Shumaker of www.laurashumaker.com claims to have stayed married to her husband for 29 years, while simultaneously being parents of a child with autism.  Her post was titled, “How This Autism Mom Stays Married.” It’s not a bad list, but it got me thinking.  My …

Ryan and Beth, the early years

So much of who I am is grounded in my wife and three kids.  They’re truly my foundation.  I have the courage to go out and face the world each day because I know that they are always going to be there to love me when I get home and catch me when I fall. …
