Brownies must be healthy

Laralee just had some eggs for breakfast, and they apparently weren’t “sitting well” with her, so she walked into my office eating a huge brownie. I asked about it, and she said:

“… I had a brownie to make my stomach feel better.”

My wife, who’s into organic free-range non-GMO non-pesticide low-fat low-carb healthy foods, just said that. It seemed blog-worthy.

Well, this blows

Tomorrow evening is ultimate league, and NOAA doesn’t have good news for us:

Windy, with a northwest wind 21 to 26 mph decreasing to 11 to 16 mph after midnight. Winds could gust as high as 37 mph.

I can’t think of many sports that are so heavily affected by wind… I guess competitive kite-flying depends on a good stiff breeze, but otherwise, wind just isn’t good. It should make for interesting games. I expect the scores to be things like 1-2.

The ‘fro had to go

Zaque’s hair is unlike anyone else’s in the family– it has a lot of body, and when he just lets it grow unfettered, it turns into a curly mass on the top of his head. The other day he admitted that it might be getting a little long.

Yeah, almost 2 inches… and that’s with it sort of matted down.

I offered to cut it for him, but he decided Mom would be best. So Laralee took the trimmers and shaved off at least an inch all around. The result actually looks pretty similar, but trust me when I say it’s half the hair he used to have:

The next day, it was funny to hear several of the girls in my seminary class commenting about how they liked his “new hairstyle”. Of course there was nothing new about it– it was just shorter. He pretends not to care about the opinions of the girls, but come on, he’s a sixteen-year-old boy…

Proud dad

It’s fun to see people commenting about all the good things Kyra is doing on her mission…

What an awesome girl. This must be one of those “proud dad” moments…
