What JAM Camp is about

When I was invited to participate in the 2018 JAM Camp, I learned what the camp was about. J is for JESUS.

While the camp uses athletics as the main way to communicate various principles, Jesus Christ is the focal point of everything.

Back to School: Doing My Daughter's Hair

The start of school means that I have to work my magic on my daughter's hair in the mornings. Yay!

Here are some pictures of me and my daughter on the second day of school for 2012. I'm finishing her hair before we move into the next step of our morning routine - breakfast.

Doing my daughter's hair has never been a problem for me. I've been doing her hair since she was an infant. I've done mom's hair a few times as well. I just can't get my hands to cooporate for braids and plaits, so I just stick to twists.

SAHD Life: My First Daddy-Daughter Dance Sweetheart Ball

The YMCA Adventure Guides Father-Daughter Sweetheart Ball was not on my radar until a good friend of mine told me how he takes his daughters each year. I thought, "Cool! You and your girls are really excited about this thing, huh?" When my wife started getting emails about the event, there was no controlling her excitement. She was even talking about renting a car for the night!

Yeah...

In case you didn't know (like me), a dadddy-daughter dance allows dad an opportunity to set an example and standard for how his daughter should be treated on a date. It is also an opportunity for dad to build that special bond with his daughter and make special memories.

Okay, based on the description above, I tossed the whole daddy-daughter dance thing out the window because my daughter and dating don't even go together in a sentence. And I can build that special bond with my daughter at the creek - FISHING!

But I thought about the whole thing (I do a lot of thinking) and with my "try-almost-anything-once" attitude, I went all in.

That's right! I went to my first daddy-daughter dance AND I LOVED IT!
