I snapped a few photos of Grant tying Ryan’s tie. It’s amazing how many silly faces this kid can make while being photographed. Naturally, I had to share! 🙂 That’s more like it….. Post Footer automatically generated by Add Post Footer Plugin for wordpress.
James is a freshman in high school. This is his first year on student council. As part of student council activities, the group holds a male beauty pageant/talent show called “Mr. Oakmont.” There were 11 contestants. James is #2. They had a “swim suit” competition. They had fun with that – showing off their muscles […]
Okay, this is not really a “wordless” post. If I had to use one word it would be “Aarrghh!” I woke up about a week ago with neck pain. My nurse practitioner prescribed exercises, Aleve and a muscle relaxer at night. When I read through the exercises, I noticed that it said not do these […]

The boys are playing town basketball. As a 9th grader, this is James’s last year to play. Grant is coaching, so both James and Ryan are on his team. This is a first and a great way to finish the league. I really enjoy watching their games. They are fast-paced with lots of action. Ryan […]
