Getting called on Saturday before the Natty Championship game and being offered game tickets for my wife and me, from my wonderful friends that live in Austin.  They had two extra FREE tickets to the game.  I will forever owe my dad who took all three of our kids Sunday morning through Tuesday night without even pausing to think.  His exact words when I reluctantly called him the day before we would need to leave him with a 6 3 and 1 year old -"Are you kidding me? Heck yeah I will watch them, you two absolutely MUST to go to this game".  I am so glad he understands! :)

Mine is my user-ID/email prefix from my days as student at the best damn university in the land. A flag was thrown after the picture was taken for my Icon.  I still say that was bullish!t.

It is personal enough to brainwash my kids who are 7, 4 and 2 years old.  YES I SAID 2!  If she hears the word M!chigan, she yells "eeew yucky!".  When She hears O-H, she replies properly with a loud I-O.

Just yesterday, my wife was dropping the Kids off at their Aunt and Uncles house. The next door neighbor had a College of Mount St. Joseph flag hanging outside (it is a small college here in Cincinnati).  It just so happens to be a blue flag with yellow lettering.  The tow older ones saw the yellow "M" on the flag and all started yelling "they have a M!chigan flag BOOOO!".  They calmed down quickly when my wife explained why it was alright.

My 1st little pickle squirt is starting 1st grade.  Her school has an option to let them supply the school supplies.  We pay $50 and they give her everything she needs for the year.  I know this is a bargain because I am sure we COULD do it cheaper, but i bet we would end up buying all kinds of crap she didn't need.  She had this option last year and it was sweet, we just send her the 1st day with lunch and an empty backpack.

Having both is better :) . Little kids can touch the tablet and turn off whatever the hell they are watching and complain because it isn't working.  We had the DVD player going for the 2 year old (don't get me started on how awesome the headphones are on long trips)and the 7 and 4 year olds shared the tablet when they didn't feel like watching what everyone else was. The DVD player gives the driver and passenger control without having to climb into the back of the van every time a little kid changes what they want to watch or just touch the tablet wrong.    Worked great (minus some battles over the tablet).

My Honda Odyssey was a great purchase.  I held on for dear life until kid #3 was about to arrive.  My opinion is that there is no more comfortable way around it with 3 Kids in Car seats. The most accurate quote I ever heard about that Van: "it is the best vehicle you never wanted to buy".  Traveling is so much easier, especially with all of the crap that comes with the youngest.  Another plus... I can fit 3 bikes and three adults and all their gear into my van when traveling to Triathlons with no issue.  If I can avoid it, I prefer traveling with my bike inside rather than out on a bike rack when driving longer distances.

They just put a Graeter's with a drive-through about 1/4 mile away from my house.  Damn place is dangerous.
