So I’m getting ready to head down to D.C. for the March for Life. This annual Archbold pilgrimage will be one Archbold short this year. Normally I head down with the five kids but this year my oldest isn’t coming with us. She’s heading down to the March with a group from her Catholic high school. Kinda’ makes me sad that she won’t be with us but on the other hand, watching her get on the bus at 5 a.m. this morning made me so proud of her and of the school.

Every once in a while I start thinking that maybe I’m not the world’s worst parent since my kid woke up at 3:30 a.m. to head down to our nation’s capital to march in support of life. Maybe not.

Hope to see many of you down there. I’ll be the proud Dad with four kids texting my oldest daughter to make sure she’s ok.
