Red – Birthday – Connexions – Me

What do the above three words have to do with each other? Tomorrow is Pentecost Sunday…we typcially use Red vestments on this day as we remember the descent of the Holy Spirit as remembered in Acts 2 This is typically considered the “Birthday” of the church. Connexions is the name of the new ministries that [...]

What a night!

So, as I mentioned earlier the Wadsworth Central Intermediate School Choir got to sing the National Anthem at last night’s Akron Aeros game.  The kids did a great job.  Taylor and all his friends really enjoyed it.  He said as they were coming off the field they got to Hi-Five Jeanmar Gomez who had just [...]

Oh, say can you hear…

Tonight we’re heading to the ballpark!  The Wadsworth Central Intermediate School 5/6th grade choir is singing the National Anthem before the Akron Aeros game!  Taylor is a part of this and is pretty excited – heck, I’m pretty excited for him.

Party like it’s 1955!!

One of the things I love about living in Wadsworth is the fact that we still have an operating drive-in movie theater.  The Blue Sky Drive-In has been open since 1947.  We try and make it at least once a year or more. The beauty of the Blue Sky Drive-In is: 1) It’s about a [...]

So, as I mentioned in my twitter feed Sunday was a crazy day – lots going on.  It was all good though – especially at 2:30.  You see, that’s when all three of the kids – Taylor, Ally and Brooke – showed off their “mad skillz” with music at their recital.  Taylor’s taking voice and [...]

May the 4th be with you!

Just found out that today is Star Wars Day!  A day that geeks across the world celebrate with a really bad pun of the classic line, “May the force be with you.” That being said, I think tonight I’ll have to break out the DVD so Taylor and I can watch one of the best [...]
