Well, Saturday was a great day. We enjoyed the winter carnival here in Orillia, the weather even hinted at winter for the day, so that was good. Bring on the spring now. Pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training this week and that always means spring to me. And baseball. And hope. No predictions for “my” Nationals this year, except to say that third last year and one game below five hundred…I expect better this year.
Over the past several days I have been searching for some inspiring dad related blogs and web sites. Obviously when there are hundreds of millions of websites, this may take a couple of more days to exhaustively search out! However, I would like to introduce you to a few new ones to me that I have added to the links panel at the side of this blog.
First up there is Dave Ramsey’s site. Many of you have heard Dave Ramsey on the radio doing his financial show. I think his advice is so needed in today’s world. My wife and I have been following a lot of what he suggests for the past fourteen months or so and are seeing the rewards now of staying “gazelle-like”. If you want to get a grip on budgeting, debt-reduction, investing, etc, this is a great start.
Secondly, there is Family Matters with their focus on grace-based parenting. This site has lots of inspirational posts.
Thirdly, Dr Kevin Leman…and I will be saying more about him soon. In fact, I will leak a little information here. Lets just say, that Kevin Leman has been nice to Dads UnLimited and the winner is you!
Fourthly, Kevin East’s blog from Following to Lead. He’s got information on being a leader and importantly for me, on being a foster parent. My wife and I have been fostering for nearly one year and it has been a joy and life-changing phase of our lives.
Next, The Best Daddy Ever…Inspiring you to be just what the title implies.
Lastly for today, DIYFather.com . hundreds of reviews, articles, ideas, fun, games, stuff!
