Scripps Ranch Soccer Club 3x3 Tournament champions!

"We Showed Up" featuring Riley Gray, Mallory Grove, and Jenna Spitzberg. They won all five of their games: 4-2, 7-0, 9-0, 9-2, and 2-1 in a tense final against "The Cookie Monsters". A great showing from the girls, who were aggressive, tough, and very skillful all day.

Happy Anniversary

To this, one of my finest moments: finishing 2014 SuperFrog with the girls by my side.

While I'll probably never be able to out-run the girls down the stretch again, here's hoping I can use the next year to get back into that kind of shape (minus the pooch belly that we learned about soon after this).

I am putting this here as a reminder, and for inspiration.

UC High JV Field Hockey Tournament



Earlier in the day, I promised Melanie that she could have her own large order of fries at Five Guys if she won the tournament, and I'm a man of my word.

Rubber-band car

Melanie's first physics project was a rubber-band powered, cardboard car that she had to build to certain specifications. She was graded on design, construction, and most importantly on how far the car travelled. She built it by herself, for the most part, and got 100% when she ran it at school. In fact, hers was the fourth farthest travelled by any car in her class!

Here's a video of one of our test runs on Sunday.
