The best and safest thing is to keep a balance in your life, acknowledge the great powers around us and in us. If you can do that, and live that way, you are really a wise man.

For the long holiday weekend, Jeanne and the kids and I went on a vacation to the Mammoth Caves National Park in Kentucky. We camped for a few days, and took some absolutely incredible cave tours! Plus we did some nice hiking outside, and the kids completed the “Junior Ranger” program at the park, and loved it! If you’ve not been, I absolutely encourage you to go, it’s really wonderful.
The day after returning from vacation was the first day of school for Jeanne and the kids, and first day of rehearsal for the new show at the Williamston Theatre, which I’m directing. So it’s been a busy week! Jeanne’s liking her new class of students, and Maggie and Max are enjoying their new school schedules so far! Plus they’re both taking TWO instruments this year! We try to keep their activities to a manageable level – there’s no point in over-scheduling them and killing their play-time – but they really wanted to do them, so we’ve worked it out and Max is still taking violin lessons and adding drum lessons, while Maggie is still playing bass and adding guitar lessons!
Amazingly, and thrillingly, the Tigers are still in first place in the division. So cool!!
