Well hello there, it's been quite some time since my last blog post. So long in fact, my preoccupations with life and career change made my commitment to my readers slide. For that, I offer a sincere apology. I understand that when life gets hectic, certain things get pushed to the side, and with that … Continue reading A New Chapter: Changing Careers, Checkpoint Children, and understanding Psalm 56.
Short and Sweet: Eating with Camels, and Losing Our Imaginations
Not exactly your Marvel Avenger's line up, but I've got a feeling The Eason Clan could overwhelm one villain if we worked together - maybe a lame sounding character like Egghead or Asbestos Lady (yes, actual Marvel villains). Shout out to my friend XerxesInEaster, for the awesome image she created for us: Isaac's super speed, … Continue reading Short and Sweet: Eating with Camels, and Losing Our Imaginations
The Importance of the ‘C’ Word
Listening to 'grace' being sung from my son’s bedroom at 7:39PM is a bit strange, especially when I know he is lying there with no food. Surrounded by construction vehicles, plastic army men, and of course Curious George, Isaac bellows out the words for my attentive ears down the hall. The song grows louder with … Continue reading The Importance of the ‘C’ Word

Decisions: Booger King and Staying Straight
Life is full of ups and downs, twist and turns, and decisions that we make on the fly. As a father of four, I make a decent amount of decisions daily. What to make for school lunches, how to do the girls hair (practice needed, just ask my daughters), clothes for today, breakfast; the list … Continue reading Decisions: Booger King and Staying Straight
Short and Sweet: Story Time and a Thunderous Boom
"BATMAN STORY! BATMAN STORY!" "Alright, alright. Just a short one tonight. What one do you want to hear?" I watched as she snuggled down into the sheets, pulling them up to her nose. Her eyes darted to the left and right as she contemplated a new adventure. She was laying the ground work and I … Continue reading Short and Sweet: Story Time and a Thunderous Boom
It was a day like any other, as I prepared a meal, I noticed out the kitchen window, my son swinging from a tree. I rushed to the doorway and with my father’s voice I called: “Get down from there Isaac! Before you fall!” I watched as he flicked his head to one side, with … Continue reading “Why?”
Who Is Knocking On Your Door?
I have good news to share with you today. I DID NOT DISAPPEAR. You may have thought along those lines, considering I haven’t posted a blog in over a month. Maybe you figured I was in an accident, or on a missing list, or perhaps that I was attacked by a flock of killer chickens? … Continue reading Who Is Knocking On Your Door?
Strange times at the Clan: Toy Madness and my Son’s allergy to Owls.
Hello folks and welcome back to the strangest things you’d never thought you'd read. Due to an abundant amount of memorable conversations that took place in my home this week, I was left with a dilemma- I had to choose from a half dozen stories and pick two for today's blog. Not an easy task! … Continue reading Strange times at the Clan: Toy Madness and my Son’s allergy to Owls.
Short and Sweet -“Dad, when you were a baby… I held you.”
Yes, you read that right. When I was a baby, my eldest daughter Railene held me in her arms. She is four. She asked me to tell her a story, however, due to her constant interjections into my own tale, I kindly asked her to tell me one. Well that's how her story started off, … Continue reading Short and Sweet -“Dad, when you were a baby… I held you.”
