I was never a good student. Regrettably, my son and many others like him struggle at school as well. Thankfully there are a lot more systems in place to help students today. I tell him all the time in the most sincere way possible how incredibly emotionally intelligent, creative, insightful and intuitive he is. When I was a kid it was called being “street smart.” Although that was never one of the boxes to be graded in school, it has served me very well in life. This post is for those who think differently! The creative’s in the world who don’t follow rules well in school, drawn outside the lines, don’t march to the beat of the group. These are the minds of the future creatives, the rule breakers, the mavericks and ultimate barrier benders that will help forge things yet to be imagined. Love you Kaedin. I can not wait to see all the amazing things you do in life!

It is better to light a candle then to curse the darkness. #rememberingrupp

Standing in front of the Church of St. Kevin! Yep, you read that right. Plus, I just learned a little about St. Kevin.
.
It was St. Kevin’s desire to be a virtuous and holy man dedicate to serving God. One night as he was sleeping a women entered his bedroom and tried to tempt him. Not only did he resist her advances, he carried her out of his home and tossed her into a nearby river. Now that is a unique way to cool someone’s jets down.

The church of Saint Kevin in Ireland is also know as the church where “the roof never leaked.” It stand just few yards away from the Round Tower of Glendaloch, know as one of the most visited sites in all of Ireland. If you ever make it there, be sure to stop in the small church of Saint Kevin and tell them that Kevin sent you. I am sure you’ll get a response of “oh now isn’t that grand.” We Kevin’s need to stick together.
