  • Cava's Diorama
    on Sep 26, 2014
    Like any parent of an elementary school student, I am less than thrilled when my child comes home assigned to do a project that they are clearly incapable of doing by themselves because it involves more skill sets than they have yet acquired. Such wa...
  • Our Beach Trip 2014
    on Aug 4, 2014
    Summer is almost over and we finally took some time and headed to the beach. The boys were excited and Cava constantly asked how much longer it would be before we were at the beach (he started before we even hit the highway and continued at repeated...
  • Learning From Legos
    on Jul 18, 2014
    One of the major areas I have been working with Cava on is in the area of self-defeat. This is a struggle that comes from having spent eight years of his life never being told he was smart or talented or of value. He has spent eight years either hear...
  • Withhold Good Things?
    on Jul 16, 2014
    Lately, I have been struggling with a verse of the Bible. Like Jacob wrestling the angel, I have prayed and studied and read and reread this verse, but to no avail. The verse is Psalm 84:11, "For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace...
  • Our Day Trip To The Greensboro Science Center
    on Jul 12, 2014
    If there's one thing we love it's science centers. One we have been wanting to visit was the Greensboro Science Center with it's aquarium, zoo, museum, and OminSphere theater. Along with our friends the Helms, we made the trek today and, boy, were we...

    Adoption is not about getting the perfect child but getting the child God has for you.This is not an easy fact for some to come to grips with. So often when we go into the process of adoption we have a mental picture of what we want, perhaps even an...
  • An Artist's Point Of View
    on Jun 17, 2014
    "All children all are artists. The problem is how to remain anartist once he grows up."- Pablo PicassoIt's interesting that I had to have the exact same conversation with Cava today that I had with Benjamin when he was in elementary school.Earlier in...
  • On Being A Father
    on Jun 16, 2014
    Yesterday was Father's Day and it's a day I enjoy far more than my birthday and not just because it doesn't mean I've added another year to my age. I love being a father. I remember the first time I held each of my sons: one when he was born and the...
  • Our Own Summer School
    on Jun 12, 2014
    It's amazing the differences between my two boys. One of the greatest is their attitude towards school. Cava cries when school ends for the summer and Benjamin cries when it begins in fall. To make the transition into summer easier this year, I have...
  • Summer Begins For The Boys
    on Jun 11, 2014
    Yesterday was the last day of school for Cava, so now the boys are both officially ready for summer. While Cava was sad to leave his teacher, Ms. Davis, and second grade behind, I will help him transition into summer more easily by making summer a bi...
