My wife and kids have notice what seems to be an increase in homeless or at the very least people who’ve found themselves in extremely hard times.

Seeing these people has had a profound effect on the kiddos. They’ve asked their mother about why the people are out there, if they have water because it’s hot, and shouldn’t we give them our dollars?

Together they’ve begun giving Blessing Bags and keep a supply of them in the van at all times. My relating this to you isn’t to shed light on them but to make you aware of something you could do for very little money as a random act of kindness.

So, So Amazing

I was able to conduct another interview for NXTFOCUS . This time it’s with author, motivational speaker and leadership ambassador Leland Jones.

It’s so amazing that there are extremely successful people out there who will be so kind and willing to give of their time. I’ve learned so much since becoming a writer for NXTFOCUS. Thanks to everyone who has taken time to join NXTFOCUS and be a part of a positive movement. Much love.

Our Kiddog

Having Ruthie Dog is just like having another #kid. She has to have her #toys, she has her favorite ones and we’re always stepping on or tripping over one. She’s been known to #destroy the so called “#dogproof” toys in minutes. (Not that my kiddos have destroyed a dog proof toy.) As soon as we clean up her toys she’ll go pull them right out of her toy box and the cycle begins a new. .

We love you Ruthie Dog.

My Little Ornithologist

Remember me telling you about J wanting a bird more than anything?

Holy law of attraction! She found that a family of birds has nested under the eave and she’s adopted them. She’s created a bird bath with her sled and is providing them bird seed.

Do you know what happens when you allow a 7 year old to be in charge of the bird seed?Nature. Nature happens.

Our yard look like a Disney movie was being filmed. There were so many birds, bunnies and squirrels. Later that day we found that we also have chipmunks.

I figure I’ll just become a backyard wildlife photographer.

🎇🎆Have Fun!🎇🎆

🇺🇸Happy 4th of July🇺🇸

We hope you all have a fun and safe Independence Day celebration. We began a day early with 💥fireworks💥 on the river. It’s only the second time in over 20 years I’ve been able to have a 4th of July in the dark. That’s Alaskan living for you.

My favorite thing of all is spending time with my family and friends.
