I’m going to hit my Move goal just by pacing around the living room during this game and fist pumping with every score and stop.

We got a doggy door put in yesterday.

Good news: Indy loves it and uses it just like he is supposed to.
Bad news: So does my son.


Frontier Journal

My friend Issac just launched a new online magazine called Frontier Journal.

In his words:

When I set out to create an online magazine the convincing factor was this; to ponder, think, and write about beauty. And, to invite others to do the same. Frontier Journal is a collection of creative works that invokes thoughtfulness and invites us to reflect on beauty. Shared by the stories of everyday people. May you be refreshed and inspired here.

The first issue was a mix of everyday adventure, life with family, and faith and Jesus. It reminds me of Chris Bowler’s Weekly Review in all the best ways1.

My favorite article in the first issue was one that Issac wrote himself – My Need for Adventure. The entire thing is free, so I’d encourage you to check it out. It would make for some great weekend reading.

If you like what you read, he has a Patreon set up to support the project.

  1. I wrote more about The Weekly Review here

The backseat of a Bronco was not built to hold two car seats (or one, if we are being honest).

In other news, Carissa is back to work today and Caleb is at his first days of day care.

I wish that they had picked a name other than Solo for this movie. I want Lando to have as big a part (or bigger) than Han Solo, but the name suggests that he just plays side kick.

What a statement win by OKC. Beat the best team in the NBA on the road and kept us in the running for home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. #thunderup πŸ€

If iPads were made for kids β†’

I bought my kids their own iPads last fall. I’m nice, and I’m fortunate to be able to afford it. However, I’ve come to realize that despite my attempts to spoil my kids, these iPads (and all iOS devices in general) are not meant for kids.

Now, I realize this might be a controversial statement, especially because it seems counter to a lot of Apple’s advertising. But hear me out.

Dave DeLong makes some great points on where the iPad falls short on being a good device for kids to use. Hopefully the new parental control stuff that Apple is working on will address some of these issues.
