Just Want to Play Ball

August 11th, 2012

Nike celebrates how far women’s sports have come by featuring elite athletes who defied convention—women who wanted to play so badly, they wrote their own rules.

As a father of a very competitive daughter I really like this ad. In fact, I can’t count the number of times she came home last year from first grade (sometimes in tears) telling me about some dumb boy at school told her she couldn’t “play”. I have no doubts that she won’t let anyone hold her back. The kids got fire in her heart. Thanks Nike.

My Super Heros

Finally my kids get what pretending and using their imaginations.

So this is Christmas 2011

I think this is the first photo we have of all three Garner kids together.

Having been the one doing all the house work and cleaning lately this photo hurts.

I think we might have our own little “Hunger Games” later today.

Gem, Theo, and Clive. Home At Last.

These images are the first images of Clive being home and Gem and Theo meeting him for the first time face to face (if you don’t count facetime on the iPhone which was probably funner because I did a great ventriloquy act with sleeping Clive).

There really is no place like home.

The Newest Edition

Born December 13, 2011 at 3:33 AM. We’re thinking of naming him Clive or Hugh. Haven’t 100% decided, but the kids think he should be named Clive. I still want Frank. So he might just end up as Clive Frank Garner.

Susan is doing great despite having gotten all the way up to delivering him unmedicated only to discover that he was breech frank (another sign his name should be Frank), and having her abdomen cut open for an emergency c-section. She’s amazing. Truly. I feel really blessed.
