MrJeff2000 Explains It All

It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, um what was I talking about again?

Kid Talk

My kids have been generally well-behaved for a while, so it's time to talk about them.

Fall Ball Fail

My younger son is playing less-competitive "fall ball" this September and October. I'm not coaching, just assisting from the sidelines when needed. And I made a lapse in judgment this past weekend that's been weighing on my mind.

Summer Vacation, Part 1

I finally got around to talking about my summer vacation. Well, at least the first to days of it.

As well as an annoying call with someone who wanted to donate books in the most inconvenient manner possible.

It’s My Birthday (Reprise)

On vacation this week, so here's the podcast from April 2017:

It was my birthday this past week. Thanks for asking. I spent the day with my sons, and reflected on how I chose the activities we embarked upon.

Health Notes

Health updates about myself and my sons.

What else could you want in the middle of summer?

Pool Friends

My younger son might have made a friend at the swim club this week.

Maybe.

Playoffs Here We Come!

My son's little league team won its first playoff game last weekend.

The secret was they were not TOLD it was a playoff game.

That helped keep the pressure off them, and it was an impressive experience from a group of 8-9 year olds.

Update: They lost in the second round on Saturday, so no finals.

The No Fight Club

I wouldn't call myself a pacifist; I'm just a guy who got lucky and always used my wits and sense of humor to stay out of fighting situations.

But there were a few times where that wasn't the case.

I just remembered one event, after a long period of having either forgotten or blocked it out.

Camp Choices

My kids are getting ready for their summer programs.

For my younger son, that meant investigating a bunch of new camp options this spring.
