On Thursday, Carl along with Rick Rassier, took Silas, Titus and Jack kayaking for their first time down the river this year. 

Jack came back and told Carl, “Dad, what’s that disease where you forget things?”

“You mean Alzheimer’s?”

“Yeah, I never want to have that because I want to remember this day for the rest of my life.”

Needless to say, he came back beaming. Jack is my 100% boy, risk taker, adventure seeker, live life to the fullest kind of kid. 

Today Adie and Max had a turn too down the river. Adie will match the boys sport for sport.


Max was such a big kid. I was the shuttle mom with drop off and leaving the van for them at the end.  I even waited for Max at the end of his trip. 

The three boys got another turn today too. 

That’s three trips for Carl in one day.
