Someone got their photos done for their first passport this week. I tried not to laugh when he told me he wore blue to ‘bring out his eyes.’

We will be heading to Canada for a hockey tournament in the winter and we are getting prepared. Plus, as Tucker told me ‘it is just a really good idea to have a passport. Because maybe next year we will go to London or Italy over the summer.”

My kid knows how to ride The Wave. And do tricks while doing it. (video)

People ask all the time about Tucker and Jack. I am not kidding. Nearly 90% of the time I meet a reader they ask about my kids. And I get emails from readers who want “MORE of THE BOYS”. Well I am happy to oblige. So here is a little slice of life, after school, [...]
