    We have four kids in three different schools this year. Three children will start the year with virtual learning and will move into a hybrid schedule (two days in school and three virtual) once the weather is cooler. Since our schools are older, there is no air conditioning in most of them. Our school superintendent doesn’t want children in school if it’s hot. My other daughter will start the school year hybrid since her school does have air conditioning. School starts the second week of September for our school district in NJ.

    We recently watched The Gameplan (2007) with the kids, along with Magic Camp. Both are on Disney Plus.

    I have a similar relationship with male role models as Adam’s. I grew up being a huge pro-wrestling fan (still am), and when I was a kid I looked up to the Ultimate Warrior. He was tough, cool, had charisma. As I grew up, I realized he had his many faults and wasn’t a good role model at all. My father is and always has been a quiet, calm, good and loving man. Now that I am a father (of five children) I look back and remember how consistent my father was, how patient he was with me and my brother. I was a knucklehead growing up, getting into trouble at school, but my father was always there and kept me in check.

    Now, as a father, I continue to look up to my dad, and also look up to St. Louis Martin and St. Joseph. St. Therese played a special part in bringing my wife and I together. My wife and I travelled to Lisieux after we were married. In the backyard of St. Therese’s home, there is a beautiful statue of her sitting next to her father as she pleaded with him to allow her to become a nun. St. Therese always described her father as a loving, gentle father. I want to be that for my children, always.

    Thank you for creating this site. We look forward to meeting other families. I saw your comment about chickens. We recently started with backyard chickens. It’s a lot of fun. The kids love them.
