Today Jacob got a short chess lesson from my Dad. It’s the first of what we hope to be many lessons. Jacob really seems interested in learning to play chess
Today Violet had a special outing with her god mother, so little Nate came to our place for a visit. It was great to have the little guy around for the afternoon. He seemed really interested in the WiiU. Got to get him gaming young.
Today Violet had her hockey tryout skate. She was so excited to get out there and show off her skills for the league coaches. It took a little while for her to get used to the ice again, but before long she was skating like a pro. Jacob seemed a little disappointed that his league doesn’t hold a tryout skate. The season starts in a couple of weeks, and I think it’s going to be great, Watching both of our kids working hitting the ice each week working hard, and scoring goals.
Tonight Melissa and I shared an unexpected date night, and you would think on a night like this I might use a picture of the 2 of us, or maybe some of our dates activities. I decided to go another way. I captured a selfie while waiting for our movie to start. Now a selfie itself probably wouldn’t make it as my picture of the day, but after playing with my phones effects, I thought hey why not.
Today while we were out for a walk Ruby found her self a little stick. So out came the camera and I had a picture of the day.
Today Jacob asked me a question that I never really expected to hear. He held up todays picture of the day and asked, What’s this Daddy? I couldn’t help but laugh, we’ve all see the posts online saying our kids wouldn’t know what things were, I just didn’t expect it so soon. I asked him what he thought it was and he said it was a video tape. I think it’s a pretty good guess, I just have to show him what a real video tape looks like, if I can find one.
For months I’ve known it was time to get a new computer, but it’s a hard thing to pick a computer. This week I finally pulled the trigger and got a new computer. Well work pulled the trigger, but I picked what it was aimed at. I considered a number of options for my computer, from laptops to touchscreen desktops. In the end I settled on a Lenovo K450E. I’ve set up a lot of Lenovos for clients recently and I’ve been impressed with the quality of the hardware and their customer support.
With the start of the school year we must prepare for Jacob’s season of sickness. So before he actually is sick we had his usual check up at the asthma clinic to make sure we were stocked with all the right medications. Melissa captured today’s picture of the day during his breathing test at the appointment.
If you are a regular reader of Geek With Kids you might have noticed something different with the site. Last Friday I launched an updated look for GeekwithKids.com. With the new look i hope to bring a renewed focus in writing. I’m hesitant to talk about the changes I have planned Considering how many times I’ve written about new series of posts I’m starting that always seem to peetering out after a few posts. So all I will say today is that there should be more than just pictures of the day filling these pages in the coming weeks.
Today Jacob got a short chess lesson from my Dad. It’s the first of what we hope to be many lessons. Jacob really seems interested in learning to play chess and I’m so glad that my dad is able to teach him. I might have to keep an eye on these lessons, I might pick up a few pointers.
