We love you both, equally and unconditionally.
Kaitlyn & Skylar, This is a song by Skid Row from my high school and college days. Linda M., a fellow swimmer on the Dickinson College co-Ed swim team, and I would sing this song religiously. https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/i-remember-you/1092781796?i=1092782420 It is a Red Devil swim team tradition that all of the freshman have to sing a song … Continue reading I Remember You
Kaitlyn and Skylar, Have watched "A Star Is Born" a few times since it's release. In fact, I even bought the movie. (One thing you may not know about your Dad: At Dickinson College, I was president of the student film society for two years and was responsible for providing movies on campus.) Your dad … Continue reading A Star Is Born
Pearl Jam, “Nothingman:” https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/nothingman/426356461?i=426356559 Please don’t ever make another human being feel the way this song sounds. No one is nothing. Everyone has their talents, their flaws, their humor, their beauty, their imperfections. Everyone has their value. Every. Single. Person. Love is all you need. Everything else is just icing on the cake. I love … Continue reading A life lesson learned firsthand in my marriage
Kaitlyn & Skylar, Please listen to this song by Dierks Bentley: https://youtu.be/oUuX8aCrIMw I know you are both on instagram in at least two places. Found you all on my own. Not sure why Sky hasn't posted a slime video in six months or so. Like watching those videos. "Fun With Sister" was a nice group … Continue reading The Heaven I’m Headed to

As … Continue reading Favorite Songs (as of October 9, 2014)
Kaitlyn and Skylar, This post will be in two parts: one short; the other longer. First, the short piece. Merry Christmas. I wish I could tell you in person. Under the circumstances, this blog post will have to suffice. Brenda Lee’s “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” just played on my phone. From the time each … Continue reading Merry Christmas to my girls
Skylar, Today you turn 12.... Wow! I remember the day you were born as if it were yesterday. Your mom and I took our time getting the hospital.... On our way, your mom suggested we stop at a deli before heading into the hospital. As soon as we parked, though, I thought it better to … Continue reading Happy Birthday Skylar
