Roller Skating – 1/8/2023

We wanted to do a family event while Corvin was in town over winter break. Of course its cold out so there are not tons of things that we can do out of the house. Of course the kids really like skating. We decided to go out roller skating. The plan was just the 5 … Continue reading “Roller Skating – 1/8/2023”

Goodbye to a Friend – 12/31/2022

Back in March of 2018, I purchased a new Suzuki V-Strom 650 from a dealer with zero miles on it. I spent almost five years making memories with this motorcycle. I finally realized I’ve scratched my motorcycling itch and am ready to move on to other things in my life. I put the motorcycle up … Continue reading “Goodbye to a Friend – 12/31/2022”

Kids To The City Museum – 12/30/2022

Christmas Eve in St. Louis – 12/24/2022

Nothing like the holidays for pushing you to do the most possible in the least amount of time. Okay, we had a little more time, but I should explain. Corvin was scheduled to take an Amtrak train home from school. Amtrak cancelled the train 5 days in advance due to weather. I’m guessing they don’t … Continue reading “Christmas Eve in St. Louis – 12/24/2022”

World Cup Soccer – 12/18/2022

I’ve often said that the World Cup Soccer tournament is a chance for Americans to pretend they care about soccer for a few days. With our exchange student, Coty, it was a bit different this year. She is from Argentina and they are in the final. Coty made sure to get her country’s flag for … Continue reading “World Cup Soccer – 12/18/2022”
