New Bike Day :)

Canyon Grail

Did a nice family hike along the San Gabriel Riverbed this morning. What a great way to spend Labor Day.

Some classmates and I are working on a school project for parents. If you are a parent and have 5 minutes, I would appreciate your input on a survey.

I found out what I would use a time machine for. Returning to the moment last Saturday where I decided not to wear sunscreen at the pool party and shaking sense into myself.

The Incredibles 2 is delightful. Great family fun. My kids loved it, laughing and cheering the whole time, me too.

Saw Teen Titans Go! To The Movies with the boy yesterday. This was my first Teen Titans experience. I must say, it was great! Very funny and the animation is great.

New computer setup is coming together. Next step, cable management!

9 year old and friends decided to open glitter in her room. After a week of futile cleaning attempts I think it’s time to just burn this place down and start over.

I taught a Sunday School lesson about David and Goliath a few weeks ago. I wish I had seen this beforehand. Super interesting.

Saw Ant-Man and the Wasp yesterday. I loved it. It’s exactly what I want in a super hero movie. Funny, fun, with lovable characters. Pretty much the opposite of Infinity War. I vote for all Marvel movies being Ant-Man movies.

I met Asad and heard his story in person last October in France. I looked at him and saw myself, except I knew I would be seeing my own children in a matter of days. I hope the same thing happens for him someday soon.

Glad I got a ride in early this morning before the rain.

Tickets are purchased, rental car is reserved. Looking forward to SLC in August!

Went out for an evening solo ride tonight. It was fun, although, despite sticking to country roads without traffic, it’s a bit nerve-racking to ride alone after dark. It’s ingrained deep to look for predators behind every bush.

Vegan fettuccini alfredo was a success.

Are Chicken Mole Enchiladas the greatest lunch on a warmer summer day? Yes, yes they are.

There’s something fun about drawing maps of fake places. Who’s going to correct you?

When cycling in Texas, always rest in the shade.
