The Weekend’s Midpoint

Sam’s school hosted a small fundraiser tonight. I had big plans to put up some video of him and his class doing their little song for the rest of the group. I should know better than to pre-blog anything in my head. Because, of course, were I to show you the video it would basically [...]

What’d he say Wednesday (on Thursday) - Sleep talk
