I apologize for a lack of updates. We haven’t dropped off the map, not in any kind of way. I’ve been incredibly busy setting the new business up. Interesting stuff coming soon, including an entire rebuild of this website. I have to actually, the program I used to build the site is so obsolete, it’s really become unusable. I’m working on a complete rebuild, but really didn’t want to take the site down and rebuild it over time. Too many kids are coming to see it. I’m rebuilding it first, then will upgrade the whole site. Plus school is out right now, and a surprising amount of my traffic is through schools and home schools. I’m honored, I promise I will strive to live up to being something you want to teach your children from. Including you two, Rebecca and Ramona. I promise you some really good stuff for your fall semester.
The reason for today’s post? I wanted you guys to witness the beginning of the “Passing of the Torch”.
The kids were up for a visit over the weekend. They got to help “finalize” their girls. We spent a good amount of time going over the final look, the last personality quirks of Stormy, Sunny and Cap’n Zak. As an elder of the clan, and really going through it for the second time really gives you another perspective.
I saw Stormy growing into the matriarch of her generation. From bedtimes and curfews to movies and snacks; so much easier because she led the way. No begging, no bribes, Stormy is falling so naturally into the role. All I said was what time something had to happen; Stormy really took care of the rest. I hope the world is ready, Stormy’s coming. Go get ‘em girl.
I saw Cap’n Zak turning into ” The All-American Boy”. Baseball and babes weren’t the only thing on his agenda, but seems to be becoming pretty important. Every boy needs that sense of adventure in his heart, whatever the adventure. A young pirate’s heart indeed. Honor, respect, and the slightest stirrings of manhood. Is that what I saw?
One of the most interesting things to come out of the weekend;
My Sim made this. She wanted to learn how to make better Sims videos. This is the result of a few hours showing her what a video editor is, how they work, basic principles of timing, setting, and flow; she came up with this. Now, am I just a silly old man, or is this such a natural talent finding another channel to express itself? Not so much being in the show, but actually what it takes to make it “become” a show.
Anybody that follows me and my blabberings across the internet know how much I believe in the old maxim that you judge how good a parent is by the children they raise. So, Leslie, Jeremy, Mark, and Melanie; We’ll never agree on a hundred one and things ( especially Lady GaGa.), but you guys must be doing the right things. You have some awesome kids.
