Corrupting Julie for Half of Her Life

Date July 24, 2010

I suck at remembering birthdays. Hell, I barely know what day of the week it is sometimes. But, early last year, I had a long and rambling post whereby I tried to nail down the exact date that Julie and I met each other. That date, it turns out, was March 23, 1990. Given that, [...]

Wilson Family Theme Song June 2010: On the Road Again

Date July 6, 2010

For chuckles, I took a crack at mapping our travels between June 9th and July 4th of this year: Tallying that up: June 9-10: Julie, Tim, Benton, Carson, and Alana drive from Columbus to Dallas for the Love reunion (1,040 miles) June 13: Julie, Tim, Benton, Carson, and Alana drive from Dallas to Lake Whitney, TX (100 [...]

Spring Means Sports

Date April 18, 2010

We’re fully into spring in Ohio, which means spring sports are rapidly ramping up. On Saturday, Benton had baseball practice from 10:00 AM to noon, and I had to pick him up early so we could race over to the soccer fields for a noon game where he needed to arrive at 11:45. He’d missed [...]

One Anecdote on the Awesomeness of College Baseball

Date April 16, 2010

This should be my last Longhorn baseball post recapping our trips of the past few weeks, but there was a story worth sharing from Sunday’s game against the Kansas Jayhawks. A Longhorn batter — I think it was Kevin Lusson, but I’m honestly not sure exactly who it was — came up to bat early [...]

Spring Break 2010 in (near) the Great Smoky Mountains

Date April 6, 2010

It’s a crazy couple of weeks for me travel-wise, with part of that being due to a family trip down to North Carolina for the latter half of spring break. I’ve posted a handful of pictures (16) over on Flickr — it just doesn’t look like I’ll have time in the near term to get [...]

Alana’s Room (formerly known as Carson’s Room)

Date March 30, 2010

If you give a child an option to swap his bed with a bed from the basement, you’ll realize that it’s going to be a pain to dismantle the bed that was originally built for his older brother and was not built for portability. So… You’ll casually mention to his sister that his bed is [...]

Exploring Downtown Dublin

Date March 28, 2010

Carson and I tackled some exploration yesterday that we’ve been talking about for a week or two: downtown, historic Dublin. The most critical ingredient in any successful exploration is a cheerful explorer: We started off behind the Dublin library at the Indian Run Cemetery. It’s a small patch of land with a lot of the [...]

My 2009 End-of-the-Year Endorsements

Date December 31, 2009

This post has nothing to do with the kiddos and everything to do with a list of non-family “things” I have found myself enjoying immensely or finding highly informative over the course of 2009. Documenting them here for posterity’s sake (with my signature verbosity, unfortunately). Podcasts As I think about it, I can trace my [...]

When Dad’s Toy Meets Son’s Toy

Date December 20, 2009

When we were camping over Thanksgiving, I introduced Benton to the idea of slow-shutter-speed photography. During that trip, it was waving lightsticks and sticks with glowing embers on the end of them. Ever since, Benton has been coming up with other ways to put the technique to use. Last night, he dug out a couple [...]
