Day 28: A Machine For Making Joy
He’s never been as happy going to school as he was today, pedaling his heart out while I chased him with his sister in the buggy.
Day 27: Pedal Power
We all rode our bikes today!
Day 26: Mental Preparation
Day 25: Resume Consumption
Look Who We Saw At The Office
I had to run by work this afternoon so I took the kids with me for a quick trip. As we were getting out of the car I noticed that Bevo was pulling up in his trailer to visit a game at the Gregory gym. His horns are as wide as I am tall and it was cool to be able to get right up next to him.
Day. 24: Intensity
Day 23: Rules
The school really wants parents to drop the kids off and get out of the building quickly and they’re starting to get pushy about it. I’m the only parent who stays by their kid’s side in the cafeteria where the kindergarteners and first-graders wait for their teachers. Today I left Zak before the teacher got there and he took it about how you’d expect.
I swear though, if one more teacher had applauded me for leaving my crying son in a heap on the floor as I was walking out of the building I would have addressed them in language not fit for an elementary school…
Day 22: Milk And A Biscuit
Stopped for a breakfast adventure before school today

Getting a fresh perspective on things…
