When I was a wee lad I remember trying to learn how to use a Yo-Yo. Remember those things? Maybe it will or has become a “thing” again but I don’t see many of them around. As I was reflecting on my youngest daughter graduating from college in a few weeks. I see the emotion in her tweets (it’s the only way I really get a chance to stay current on what she’s doing-she uses Twitter like a journal of her thoughts in 140 character blocks)-sometimes being a dad is like that yo-yo.

What do your children know about you as a kid, what did you do when you were their age? Join us on the journey to leave a legacy of our lives to our children, before we are just a memory. Time to leave a memory that matters.
Meals are a great way to connect with your kids. The dinner table should be one of the places where we learn about our children as we make every effort to sit together as a family. In today’s fast paced, go here/go there culture, that is often sacrificed.
