Tuesday, March 02, 2010      13 comments

We took the kidlettes out for a hike on Sunday. Really, it was supposed to be an introduction for Max, but Kristy was worried the other two would be broken-hearted, so we took all of them. Piggy is just too old and was ready for a nap by the t... Read more

Kristy and I celebrated our 15th anniversary this past weekend. We decided on a quick get-away to the coast. We stayed at The Mill Casino in Coos Bay. Neither of us are gamblers but in the rush of excitement from all the bells, shiny machines... Read more

It's a process. A long process. A lifelong process, this transformation. It will continue my whole life. I am learning to live each day, new. Early last summer I described my abstract vision of the transformation of a caterpillar into a ... Read more

Cheating and Self-Efficacy
Thursday, October 15, 2009      10 comments
