Have you ever tried to sketch something....anything....and then you just sketch a fox out of nowhere? I did! So many things come out of nowhere, keeps life interesting me thinks.

I am enjoying my slower summer mornings! Usually it is pretty fast and furious around here, trying to get up and be somewhere on time....or close to on time. This morning I sketched for a second, this is what I thought of. Now what? Probably another sip of coffee....

So, while I was attending a Madison Forward soccer match I saw this guy that had a tattoo of a print of a soccer ball on his calf....I almost ran up to him and kicked it!!! You have to be careful because tattoos are for life! My oldest daughter dared me to kick him, but I refrained. If you do not have a Tattoo, what would it be?

I woke up the other day to my youngest daughters flying by the window chasing a bunny while I was trying to enjoy the Montana mountains. These two just made me enjoy the view a little more! So of course I had to use the inspiration they gave me to do a sketch.

I was inspired to sketch a flamingo after first going to Florida on vacation and then attending a Madison Forward soccer match when I returned. Their mascot is the flamingo....based off of a prank some UW college kids did with thousands of plastic flamingo lawn ornaments back in the day. Also the team, I believe, is the only professional team to claim pink as their main color for their club......ever. Inspiration?

Happy Birthday to my superhero buddy Rob! I grew up with this guy, he is actually my brother from another mother. My family took him in for two years while we were in High School. Can you imagine one of your best friends ever all of sudden lives with you. Whelp, that is what it was. Good times! Keep the good times rolling Falcon!

Lately this is what I have looked like coaching soccer this Spring! It is kind of miserable and kind of AWESOME! The mixture of the two I call “coachering”. It is a verb, means to coach in awful, awful weather and loving it. I love being forced to be out in the elements. Of course getting the players to give it their all helps make it worth while. I still can’t feel my face though:)

There is a bird that keeps trying to build it’s nest right above our back door where we go in and out....I have been removing it every morning. I don’t mean to be rude but I fear getting pooped on every time I go out the back door. The bird just isn’t getting the message! I give the critter credit for being persistent however.

This was the last weekend before soccer is EVERY weekend until summer! Between two high school teams, one U13 team, and a U10 team, we will be spending most of our life on the soccer field this Spring. One way to look at it is a little taste of Heaven! So I sketched a sloth waving hello to busyness. Here we go......embrace where you are!

With soccer season starting full on THIS Monday I need to slow down this weekend because it might get a tad fast and furious soon. I watched some Indiana Jones this week to inspire this doodle. This is one of my favorite quotes, it reminds me to walk every so often.

Technically this is our 6th day off of school due to winter weather. Third due to snow, the other three were freezing temps and ice. Being a teacher and married to a teacher means make the most of it. I was suppose to be among 450 kids today.....but.....SNOW.

We have a fairy who brings us Under Armour gear out of nowhere sometimes. This past week I ended up getting a whole sweatsuit from him. It has been years since I have worn a full matching grey sweatsuit. He is very gracious and kind and giving. I thought I would give him a shout out for his kindness....Thanks Barry.....Barry the Fairy:)

2019 is the year of the pig! Also known as the year of snow, cold, and ice. Another day off of school. I believe the pig means fortune and personality.....well this year (winter) certainly has personality thus far! Blessings on your year.

While we were all stuck in our houses during the Wisconsin deep freeze of 2019, I saw a Wampa walk by my window........with Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber! So I recorded what I saw through sketching because my camera was frozen. Sometimes when I am stuck inside I start to see things......

Alright...two snow days! My wonderful wife is a teacher as well........so I doodled this one! Winter is starting to feel like it did when I grew up. Piles of snow! Had a wonderful day playing sports with the kiddos indoors at the PAC and then sledding outside with some family friends!
