I'm short on time tonight, so I am going to direct you to the Update List page for all of the updates this time around. Check out all of the updates and let me know what you think!

Saturday, October 28th, 2023

I'm leaving my previous recap below, as it was a long time before that update took place since my prior one. Today's update is a quick one - Jayden went to the Riverview High School Homecoming Dance tonight, and I have pictures from beforehand to share with everyone!

Sunday, October 22nd, 2023

I've fallen way behind in getting these updates on the site lately, so I have a fair amount to add today. Because of that I'm going to make this brief - I'll just provide a list of the updates here and you can check them all out yourself for the details!

Up first, we made a few trips to Walt Disney World, checking out Epcot a couple of times as well as the Hollywood Studios and the Magic Kingdom. Drew also has a few additions to his page, including his official move into his college dorm for his freshman year, and a date to a homecoming dance in Fenton, Michigan with a coworker. Jayden doesn't have any pictures to share, but I did add her rec and school soccer schedules to the site already. Check them out and let me know what you think!

Since I only posted my last update five days ago, I am leaving that update description posted below. Today, I am adding a single update, and it involves the first day of school for our final remaining high school student, as Jayden headed off for her junior year. For the first time since the 2014-15 school year, we only have a single student in high school!

A few updates to add to the site today, some of which I was way behind in getting added. I just spent a week waylaid by a second bout with COVID, and it took a lot of energy out of me. I didn't do much more than sleep, eat, blow my nose, and drink a ton of water.

Today's update involve a couple of trips to Walt Disney World, first on July 16th and again on July 28th. I also added some of our newest popcorn buckets that I forgot to post previously (as well as one we acquired on our July 28th visit). The final update to the site also occurred on July 28th, and also took place in Orlando, though on the other side of town on the campus of the University of Central Florida. Samantha was generous enough to treat Tara, Jayden, and I with tickets to see NF in concert. Although I don't know much of his music, he put on a good show and we all had fun! As always, please follow the Update! and New! icons or visit the Update List page below to see the latest!

Three updates today, one involving a big event for our family. The first update is for Jayden's flag football team, as they finally held their end of the year banquet on May 30th at Riverview High School. Follow the Update! and New! icons to Jayden's Current Events page to navigate to the RVHS Sharks Flag Football page to see this update.

The big event update took place a day later at the Florida State Fairgrounds Expo Hall as Drew joined his class of 2023 classmates for their graduation ceremony on May 31st. You can find all kinds of pictures from graduation day on Drew's Current Events page.

The final update is a bunch of pictures from the trip to Walt Disney World that Tara & I took on June 3rd. You can see them on the Walt Disney World page.

Two quick updates this time around, starting with a hike that Jayden and I took at the Alafia River State Park on May 14th. Drew also wrapped up his high school career this week, attending his last day of school on May 18th. Check out both of these additions to the site by going to the Current Events page and following the New! and Update! icons.

Sunday, May 7th, 2023

Just one update this time around, involving the trip to Walt Disney World that Drew, Jayden, and I took on May 5th. I have added a ton of photos to the site for this particular trip, so please check them out.

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2023

Well, it's been a month since I last managed to update the site. A lot has gone on in that month, so I am not going to recap it all here. Please check out the Update List page for the listing of the latest additions or follow the Update! and New! icons. Either way, I hope that you enjoy what you see!

Since I just updated on Friday, I am leaving the comments from that update below. Today, I have two new additions - the first update is a new sipper from Walt Disney World that you can see by going to the Current Events page and then clicking on the Walt Disney World link. The second update is from Jayden's most recent soccer game with her Florida Hawks club soccer team. You can see those photos by visiting Jayden's current events page as well.

Three new additions to the website this week, all related to Jayden's Riverview Lady Sharks flag football team. They played in three games since I last updated the site - games 6, 7 and 8. You can read all about the games and check out the pictures by visiting Jayden's current events page.

Monday, March 6th, 2023

It has been two weeks since my last update and Jayden has been a busy girl during that time. Between soccer practices multiple days a week, flag football practices three+ days a week, her YMCA Leaders commitment, and games for both soccer and flag football, she barely has time to unwind. As you can guess, all of the updates this time around revolve around her activities. Up first was the official end of her Riverview Lady Sharks Varsity Soccer season, as the team held their end of the year banquet at the high school on February 21st. She followed that up with a club soccer game the following Saturday, then her first two flag football games during that following week. This past weekend she had yet another club soccer game to add to the mix, as well as two more flag football games that she unfortunately had to miss due to the soccer commitment. I told you she was busy! You can find all of these updates by going to Jayden's Current Events page and following the Update! icons and looking for the New! icons.

Monday, February 20th, 2023

I am on a roll with the website lately, as I managed to make three updates to the site in the past eight days! There are three additions to the site today - up first is some pictures from a birthday party that Jayden was invited to this past Friday. As you would expect, you can find those pictures on Jayden's Current Events page by clicking on the Kaitlyn's Birthday Party link. Tara also participated in a parent/player practice on Saturday morning (I had intended to practice, but my aching back wouldn't allow it - it's hell getting old!), which you can check out for yourself by going to Jayden's RVHS Sharks Flag Football page. The final update this time is of the sunset that Tara, Jay, and I went to see at Apollo Beach on Sunday night. Head to the Current Events page to check those out!

Since it hasn't been long, here is a recap of the previous couple of updates... I added some belated pictures from the trip to Disney's Animal Kingdom that Tara and Jayden took on January 6th, as well as updating the popcorn bucket and a new drink sipper page with our latest additions. Both of these updates can be found by going to the Current Events page and then clicking on the Walt Disney World link. I had also added an addition that I should have added back in 2022! That one can be found on Jayden's page on the 2022 Past Events page. It is pictures of her dressed up for her friend GG's birthday party on December 18th. There was also the addition of the trip to Epcot that Jayden, Drew, and I took on February 5th. You can read all about that trip by going to the Current Events page and then following the Walt Disney World link. Finally, Jayden tried out for and was selected to play on her high school flag football team! We're not too sure what to expect during this sporting season, but we're excited to find out. You can see the schedule for her (presumed) junior varsity team by going to Jayden's Current Events page.

Welcome back to the site! I updated the sites with a few new additions just this past weekend, so I am going to keep that summary below. Today I am making two more additions - both Disney related that I let slip by. Up first is the addition of some pictures from the trip to Disney's Animal Kingdom that Tara and Jayden took on January 6th. The other addition is of a new popcorn bucket and a new drink sipper that Grandma Terry picked up for me during one of her visits.

Welcome back to the site! I just updated the site a couple days ago, so I will leave that as a "new" update as well. Today, I am adding Drew's final high school hockey game, as his team participated in the Lightning High School Hockey League playoffs yesterday. Unfortunately, they didn't achieve the goal that they were aiming for - a victory - as they fell by a 1-o score in what was their only time being shutout all season. You can see the game info, as well as the official team picture that I finally got around to adding to the site, by going to Drew's Current Events page and following the Update! and New! links.

From Thursday's update: I have added a couple of random photos from our stop at the Buc-ee's in Daytona Beach during our trip to Jacksonville on January 21st for Jayden's Florida Hawks club soccer game. Check out the Current Events page for those photos!

Welcome 2023! Here's hoping that this year brings great things our family and yours as well!

Time for another round of updates, with this one covering the past two weeks that I have been late on getting uploaded. Drew and his Riverview Ice Sharks teammates played in three hockey games this past weekend, and you can find pictures and recaps on each of them by visiting Drew's Current Events page. Jayden has also played two soccer games this past week, one for her club team and one for her high school team. First up was her club game in Jacksonville, followed by her high school teams District playoff game in Tampa. You can find the pictures and recaps from both of those games by going to Jayden's Current Events page. In both cases, look for and follow the Updated! and New! icons.

Welcome 2023! Here's hoping that this year brings great things our family and yours as well!

I haven't had much luck in getting the website updated lately - in fact, not since November 5th of last year! Because of that I have plenty of additions to the website this time around. The majority of the updates to the site revolve around Drew's hockey and Jayden's soccer games. Other notable events since the last update include Jayden turning 16 years old (holy crap! How is that possible?!?), Drew taking his senior pictures, and of course Christmas and some related activities. We've also already gotten back into the sports routine this year, so there are also games from this year for you to check out. The easiest way to see all that is new is by clicking on the Update List page below. Enjoy!
