Needing a mind shift

I had an “aha” moment this week. I talk to a lot of people I’ve never met before on a regular basis. And when my life story comes up, I mention how I have two kids and how I transitioned from a traditional newsroom manager to a web-based manager at the best of times. I…

Jordan got to celebrate her brother’s birthday party along with four other kids from the neighborhood – four boys who spent the night at our house. She had fun… and some how convinced each boy to push her on her swing. (Except for her brother) They all played, danced, ate pizza and had fun. Of…

Easter fun

Swinging free

There’s something so remarkable about Spring. It’s a chance to just be who you are. The outdoors do that for all of us if you let it. What’s awesome about the outdoors and Jordan is she is attracted it to during all seasons. She’s happy to wander around in whatever the conditions. (Wet, snowy, windy)…

She's clearly growing up

This week is Jordan’s brother’s week. His birthday is on April first… and every year you have to deal with a bit of jealousy that comes with the doting of a birthday kid. But this year was different. Jordan was honored to have a birthday brother. She signed and decorated a card and drew a…
