Last year I obtained roughly 1000 acres of timber co. land that's been controlled by my family for two decades. I have been wanting a place where Lizzy could grow up hunting deer and small game safely. The roads are nice, the plots and trails are fun to ride and explore and it even has… Continue reading Snow Day with Lizzy
12-8-2017 My wife and I became home owners. It rarely snows in south MS, and when it does it rarely sticks. The night of the 7th we got 4+ inches of pretty snow. We were supposed to close the morning of the 8th, this was our last deadline to make the close and we were… Continue reading We bought a home…
Yesterday evening was the first time in my life that I've bought a tree. I actually began the process of buying several trees, 3 mulberry, 1 cypress, 5 pin oaks, 1 turkey pine, 6 sweet gums, 3 pecans, and 1 red oak. I also bought the bricks, mortar, and acre of land they reside on...… Continue reading Yesterday… Buying a Tree…
In our little town we have several local patrons and business owners that sponsor youth sports. One of these sports just happens to be soccer; a game which I know nothing about(other than you don't touch it with your hands unless you are the goal keeper).
Benelli, aka B-Dog, B-Nell, and sometimes just "B", is my sweet GSD. He is almost 10 months old and is an absolute blast to be around. He is clever and plays good with the kids and my daughter. He also has a serious intimidation factor with his size and the size of his bark. When… Continue reading Just a puppy.. 🙂
The day was March 9, 2013; the location was the Columbia Country Club, and the occasion was the Cleland wedding.... On my wedding day my wife was wanting some last minute pictures, and I was not bringing my C5 up there to have it rolled and wrapped in who knows what. I grabbed a few… Continue reading A true shotgun wedding…..
Lizzy and her closest cousin Baylenn.
Date: August 22, 2014 Location: L&D Operating Room This day marks a proud moment in my life, I became a father. There we were, Kelsey was lying supine on the O.R. stretcher, draped with sterile dressings in a room full of delivery staff, and I was standing by her head keeping her calm. We had scheduled… Continue reading The moment everything changed…
When I met my wife, I knew the from the first moment that she was special. After a year of marriage, she showed me just how special she was. Kelsey gave me Lizzy, my awesome little daughter that I strive to do better for. In Lizzy's eyes her mommy and daddy hang the moon, and I am working hard to do just that. This series 'As you grow up' will be composed of many short things that I have been able to see as you grow and learn.
While I don't believe in allowing children to have constant interaction with phones/smart devices, I certainly don't believe in leaving my child in the dark ages. Lizzy can operate her restricted tablet to play learning games and some of her favorite music, but at the same time, by focusing her attention to other things( drawing,… Continue reading Toddlers and Technology
