Needless to say, Micah was the most … [Read more...]

I want to know that when our oldest is at Taekwondo, at a friends house or staying with his grandparents for the weekend that he has a safe and easy way to get in touch with me. My son being a tween also means he is forever trying to swipe my smartphone to text family, take photos, email or call Papa. He is more than … [Read more...]
