Sharon’s Chad Getting Ready For American Ninja Warrior!

We have been watching American Ninja Warrior for three seasons now. Each year, we see the men and women vying for their chance to defeat Mount Midoriyama. There are contestants from all walks of life: mailmen, rock climbers, schoolteachers, doctors.

Each evening we all watch it together, all three kids, Bradley, Anderson and Jayden, all say "Daddy can do that!" And Chad smiles. They continuously ask him if he will try out for the show and finally, yesterday morning, he had to give in.

Sharon Has Bees! And Lots of Them!

They say in the last five years, the number of bees, especially honey bees, has been on the decline. In fact, I know a farm in central Maine that had about 20 beehives and about 2 years ago the bees just stopped coming.

I was kind of worried. If you haven't seen 'Bee Movie', then you really don't understand the concept of why bees are so important. You see, without them nothing can grow! As much as I am scared of them, I at least know we need them.
