So proud of D2. She conquered her personal fear, and finally leapt off of the high dive. How How!

They screamed. They slept. They woke. They screamed again. All the while, I drove and drove. How How!

At camp: dodge ball game with maybe 150 per side. Felt like a mix between WW1 battle and a popcorn popper!

It’s “dad day” at the elementary school bus stop.

Pullin’ shrooms… the whole neighborhood got invaded by fungi overnight.

This was definitely not a case of kids being late for the bus. It was a very early bus. — Wait, it’s coming back for more!

D1 wears mis-matched socks.

Weekend project - Arduino watches garage door and light, sends me text msg when door opens/closes. Also warns when door left open at night.

Wondering where I might find a reed switch… maybe a window/door alarm sensor… or, take apart an ipad?

ajkuftic Dear IT Managers. Your staff does not need to be on site to patch servers. NASA just patched Curiosity on Mars. ON. MARS.

@444ppenguinCP Thanks for the FF, but I’m not THAT Rockhopper!

Haven’t seen our hermit crabs in several days, so we checked on ‘em. They’d dug tunnels. Blink had molted, Barney was just being a *hermit*.

D1 is excited… it’s “sorting day” at school… they get selected into four houses, just like in Harry Potter. She’s hoping for Ravenclaw.

D2 tried to conceal her lost tooth… for an EXPERIMENT! Her toothless grin gave her away.

A year after our dog Maggie passed away, we finally buried her ashes in our yard.

@jbroome I take a ticket with an easy-to-remember number from the middle of the pad.

I like the way the school bus driver pulls out into the T intersection diagonally to “own the whole road” while the kids get on.

No sign of the hermit crabs in their cage, so we combed through the sand, found them buried deep down. Now we’re just messin’ with them!
