It seems like it went just as fast as it will take you to read through this post.

Fathers’ Day at the Schierer’s

Sunday, June 22nd, 2014

Went fishing with N on Saturday. We caught three of the tiniest bluegills you’ve ever seen.
On Sunday, I did this:

Note that my cockpit comes complete with lap warmer.

Have a happy day.

Disney trip!

Saturday, May 10th, 2014

Some of you probably knew that we went to Disney last October. Now there’s evidence in the 2013 Disney gallery.

Making music makes news.

Fishing weekend

Sunday, September 22nd, 2013

Went fishing with my Dad this weekend at Raquette Lake. All week the weather said it was supposed to start raining Saturday afternoon and keep it up all day Sunday. From that perspective, the weekend was better than planned. The rain held off on Saturday until we were back on shore happily waiting for our dinner order to arrive.

On the other hand, we only managed to catch four fish. Two of which were so tiny they “threatened to swamp the boat”. The other two were 13 and 15″ small mouth bass that were legal, but on their own wouldn’t have amounted to much. We didn’t get skunked either day, so that’s something.

In any case, it was nice to spend time with my Dad and enjoy the beautiful fall colors of the Adirondacks. Even if Sunday morning was a bit misty and cold, it was still beautiful when the sun broke through.

Bringing them up right

Saturday, July 20th, 2013

We watched Star Wars all the way through with N tonight. He’s been playing with Lego Star Wars and Clone Wars stuff for a while. He’s also been going through the Clone Wars books like candy. I knew it was time when he started messing up canon information with what he read in his Angry Birds Star Wars book. That was just going to far.

He’s seen bits and pieces before, but this was the first time he really paid attention to what was going on. He was really intensely watching during the trench run.

Favorite part: “When Luke Skywalker blows up the DEATH STAR!”

I’m so proud.

Merry Christmas!

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

As of this writing, N is still sleeping and R is singing quietly to herself in her room. K & I are already up. We’ve either failed miserably at the whole anticipating Santa thing or got pretty lucky with amazingly unique kids. Well, I know the second part is true.

Hope you and your family have a fantastic Christmas!
