Samara’s posts are always fun and very well written.
I really enjoy homeschooling the minds of tomorrow’s advice and ideas. They are always fun, creative, and, of course, educational.
Five facts about me:
- I’m bald
- I’m short
- My kids made me that way
- Reading gives me an excuse to ignore my wife and kids
- Tennis and bicycles give me a reason to leave the house
Well, I guess those are the types of answers I would give if I was posting about my crazy family. I must be slightly more interesting than that.
I do very much like playing and watching tennis. It is one of the few sports I follow on TV with any regularity. I grew up watching Stefan Edberg and Andre Agassi. I very much like watching the Big Four names of today make history.
I love listening to music. I indulged myself with a new home stereo when I made it over the hill nearly two years ago. I have since grown an addiction to Jazz. I have always enjoyed Rock and Pop music, but Jazz has become a new passion. I listen to Bill Evans, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Lee Morgan, Freddie Hubbard, Donald Byrd (you’re sensing that I enjoy the trumpet), and Stan Getz.
I enjoy reading history, theology, and novels–mostly historical. I try to read a book per week, but I never quite make it. I seem to replace one ‘read’ book with three more ‘to-be read’ books. My ‘to read’ stack is probably sufficient to get me through 2016.
And now I enjoy writing. I had never written, nor did I think I could. I was inspired this past year by a cousin. She has been wonderful and supportive. I run all of my best and worst ideas past her. She is always honest, yet supportive. I doubt I would have ever ventured into writing without her. I had no idea I would enjoy this outlet as much as I do. To her I would like to say the following: Cousin– thank you, thank you, thank you.
