May 8, 2017 - Graduation Season

Graduation season is upon us.

It's a time of appreciation and celebration of accomplishments, endurance, and experiences. A time to pause and look back at the trail a person has hiked to this point in time.

It is a moment to embrace hope while looking to the future with it's new challenges, new experiences, and unknown adventures.

Congratulations to those graduating over the next few weeks.

Congratulations to friends and family of graduates for all of the support and sacrifices they've given.

Enjoy celebrating together.

April 29, 2017 - International Tabletop Gaming Day

We kicked this year's day old school at the request of Ann and E-dot. We started out with Hive, transitioned to Sequence, then UNO, and finished with a two variants of Trivial Pursuit.

During Star Wars Trivial Pursuit E-dot stopped and asked, "Wait, are we actually playing Star Wars Trivia while Star Trek The Next Generation plays in the background?"

Dreams can come true! :-)
