Andy has been a coach for four years.
When they first asked him to coach, assisting with Jude's Catholic Youth Organization's soccer team through our school, I was admittedly a little hurt. … [Read More...]
There is a box at the very top of my closet full of photographs. Remember those? Archaic artifacts from a time when we needed our memories to be tangible and red-eyed. The box is deceiving. While the photos weigh mere ounces, the collection itself contains hundreds of pounds gained and lost and … [Read More...]
