I have a really cool guest post coming for you from a sportswriter friend of mine who happens to love soccer more than I do. It’s still baking, though. For now, let’s go with 11 smartphone photos again, shall we?
I did it by random again, no matter how embarrassing it might be – to me or the girls! So here we go.
My girls get to come with me for the Carolina Panthers’ annual Fan Fest – a scrimmage and autograph opportunity at Bank of America Stadium. From left, here’s Panthers defensive tackle Kewann Short, Grace, Marie and Elise.
Grace played a wolf in her school’s production of “Jungle Book” in the spring. They got to attend a theater workshop in uptown Charlotte, and really killed it! She’s in the front row, looking like she’s lighting a cigarette. (She’s not.)
Grace, with a huge moose in a barbecue joint in Asheville. We love that town. It’s where Elise was born.
The girls won’t like this at all. They made this montage of their most serious faces. It’s on my home screen. One of Grace’s classmates saw it when I was lunch dad, and Grace was kind of mortified. Sorry, kid.
This is what happens when you’re waiting for your cheese enchiladas to come out and you’ve forgotten your origami paper to make jumping frogs to keep the kids occupied. Oh, and you’re out of queso.
Grace loves to choreograph some of my stormtrooper shots. I can’t even remember the post this outtake came from. But he’s wearing Snow White’s dress and has that comic symbol for frustration above him.
Marie confirms that you can’t have delicious without messy.
Marie, left, poses with the conference champion’s trophy. The game was delayed more than an hour because the other team went to the wrong field. Then got a flat tire. This is Marie’s final game with her middle school team.
More Marie! This is from her post-graduation lunch at Hawthorne’s Pizza. I might or might not have avoided dripping pizza sauce on this nice white shirt. This means I’ll have two kids in high school in a week. Sheesh.
