Proud Papa. He finishes the last day of the Bar Exam today. I'm so excited to have him home and done with the Bar Beast.

Although it's still an adjustment that she's working through, Tessa LOVES her little brother and just wants to snuggle with and pet him. My two beans. Sweet Pea and Bubsy.

Some recent pics

HOW do kids do this? I remember my little brother getting the spaghetti sauce beard and wondering how he managed to do it. He finally learned how to avoid it sometime around 17 years old. Juuuuuuuuust kidding, Jon.... It was more like 18. Mwahahahaha.
At least it matches?

Yep, a toilet picture. She said I could post it. I'll remind her that she granted me permission when she's 15 and mortified.
Awwwwww. Swimming on the 4th. I was in too much of an overheated crusty mood to join them. My loss. My loss.
Such good friends. Swimming and watching fireworks. I had my feet up, trying to calm those bloated puppies. Didn't work.
The city did a great job with the fireworks. Tessa snuggled with me on what is left of my lap and "oohed" and "aahed" along with me. The best.

It turns out...

that I prefer having a bird poop on my head than accidentally picking up a petrified dead mouse. Oh, the life lessons we learn.

Keeping the World Safe From ...Weirdos

Happy Independence Day, everyone!

Love, the proud Americans, Maren, Jake, Tessa, and Cole too -- May the booming from tonight's fireworks inspire him to come early.
