Father daughter dance 2015

Last Friday was Emerson's father daughter dance. Eileen and I discussed it briefly. I was dissatisfied with last year's event, thus I decided that we weren't going this year.

That led me to go on a hunt for the best alternative plan for a father daughter #datenight It really didn't take that long for me to decide where I wanted to go. However, the question was whether there would be a saxophonist and how much would it cost?

Chris' jazz café in Center City on 13th and Sansom was the spot for our first annual father daughter #datenight

Growth check in February 2015

Dear Quentin,

It's been sometime since I blogged about you but you've grown so much. You still seem like a little boy when you wear your Batman pajamas with a little Cape like you did last night. I recognize your growth and strength size and intelligence.

You started playing video games heavily at the beginning of last summer. I was skeptical whether they would catch on, or you would be any good, but you've practiced diligently, had difficult times and joyous conquesrs and are learning ning more through video games then anything else.

Your vocabulary has grown tremendously and started to blossom at the age of three years old. However, I am worried about your recognition of letters and numbers.as of 2015 I've started a garage to get you up to where I think you should be because you started kindergarten in the fall.

It's going to be tough but I know you trust me everything will be alright. This is just like a video game except okay learning in a different way. Several apps you been playing with on the iPhone and iPod you're learning your letters, how to write them. Later on we'll get you into your numbers. My goal is for you to know everything by this June. Deal?


Lessons on emotions

About a week and a half ago Molly lost a classmate. It hit her hard for many reasons of which I don't now. Mom comforted her and supported her and guided her through the process of emotional maturation.

It is never easy to lose someone especially when you don't see it coming. This young boy sat in the same seat as Molly when they would switch classes.Eileen and I have talked about whether she should attend the wake or not.

Whether she is aware of it or not she has been meddling in sadness about his loss. God will provide strengthen and conquer all feelings of emotion and doubt. Trust in Him! Amen.
