I like him very much, I hope you can see more information

The model train show is the highlight of our year... if you see a happy 7yo running pellmell with his 9yo friend in tow, that is us :)

There are lots of fun activities scheduled for this weekend. I hope that many parents can participate with their kids. Even in times when we are busy with housework, grocery shopping and other chores, it's important to take the time off to do something relaxing with those we love.

After the passing of this hurricane, so many people have lost their homes, their vehicles and much more. There are people who will never see their loved ones again. I hope they will keep focused on the future and not let themselves drown in the feelings of discouragement that they will naturally feel at this time. Doing something relaxing may seem frivolous but it will help people remember that there is still a lot to give thanks for.
