    I'll post more as I know more. What a day.....
    My thoughts and prayers are with you as well, Sorry to hear.

    Heard an interesting story this evening.

    We were at the elementary school Science Fair school doing Alex's Lemonade Stand with the Cubbies.

    The gym teacher flagged my wife down. and told her this.

    Travis, our youngest and another boy his age (9) are in gym class with a mute autistic boy. This boy was very upset with the loud music they play during gym class, so without being asked to, they coaxed this boy onto a pull-along boat and pulled him back and forth across the gym to help calm him down.


    You know, being a parent is a tough road sometimes, and it's times like this that I realize that maybe, JUST MAYBE, I've done something right.

    Appreciate it, guys.

    This whole parenting gig can be a b***h. No friggen operations manuals or wiring diagrams to refer to. No tech support line to call.

    Like I said, it is little things like this that make it worth it, though.

    My most important, onerous and at many times, lonely realization for me with my three daughters was the fact that I have to be a Dad first and a friend if the situation permits........but now they are all happy, productive, contributing, stand on their own feet young ladies.....they like being Dad's friend......and that pretty much always brings me to tears....
    Like life and Bret's example.....you gotta put in the work to get the reward....
