Closing night

Our church's grand experiment with AWANA was a great success! The kids learned about God's Word, hid it in their hearts, began developing habits of discipline for godliness, and had a blast! Poor Jakey still has a whole year of nursery before he can join us in Cubbies...

Ammo's turn

About a month ago, Amberly turned to me and announced out of the blue that she would like to go to a "football game with Daddy. Not Jilia, not Nayfan, not Jacobitus, just me. Not a basketball game, I just already did that. A football game with Daddy." She has literally never asked for anything like this, but every day afterwards she repeated, very politely, the same request. For an entire month.

Fortunately, Daddy Make-a-wish Hintz remembered that the Spring intersquad scrimmage was coming up and he (along with everyone else in the stadium) managed to score some free tickets. This is what we call a win-win situation! Somehow Ammo also got a pink balloon and a pink ice cream cone out of the deal--her cup runneth over!

Spring means...

New life all around,

Beezlenut stew-making,

Playing outside (yes, Jakey rides a Razor),

Long walks in the neighborhood,


Daddy time,
Family kickball games,
