Hi, I’m Wildman. These are my WildThoughts

Welcome to my personal blog. It's where I put stuff about my life as a husband, dad & pastor. I dabble in photography, video, travel, outdoor adventures, and social sciences, too.

Saturday is Dad-urday. While @s.d.wildman and the sweet and kind @stephaniehaddix worked on packing the kitchen, Chuck Bear, Ed Champ, and I hiked, dodged rain, and finished the day with s’mores. ⁣ ⁣ Charles is all about being a leader. “I want to be in charge,” he says. So, we talked about what it means to lead – to listen to others, to learn what they need, and to let them know how they can help each other. ⁣ ⁣ With that in mind, he got to go down the trail first and help us find our way back. ⁣ ⁣ #truth #dadlife #leadership #parenting
Few things are more beautiful than a life that represents Jesus. Few things are more damaging than a life that claims to represent Jesus, but does not truly reflect his heart. // #lifequotes #truth #love
The little buddies love “coffee milk” right now. I pour milk into espresso cups. We sit around the table and talk about whatever. I feel like one of the simple tragedies of life today is how infrequently we pause and talk with each other face to face. I’d like these guys to grow up with another idea of what’s normal.

Never mind Mother’s Day.... this amazing woman deserves a Mother’s Week! Watching @s.d.wildman become a mother and grow into the job has been one of my life’s great joys. Bring her partner is one of my greatest reasons for gratitude. Chuck Bear, Ed Champ, and I have won the mother jackpot.⁣ ⁣ “Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is more precious than rubies.” Proverbs 31:10⁣ ⁣ #mothersday #boymom #truth #lifequotes #lovequotes #love

From Tweet Street

WildDog turns 6 months old this week. He celebrated by eating a camera battery and my very good sennheiser studio reference head phones.

It was a rather expensive party.

Here are some photos of Sarah encouraging to keep his partying to puppy-approved items.

Let’s just say Lewis has good “taste.”

If he wasn’t so popular with the ladyfolk, I’d probably send him to the pound. As it is, we’ll probably keep him around for another month.

      He’s a knuckle head. But he’s a photogenic knuckle head, so we’ll keep him around I guess. 🙂 What kind of pup would you get? Maybe a wolf? 🙂

    This is the exact kind of pooch my boyfriend wants. He’s EXTREMELY photogenic – of course, some of that is a result of the photographer. You may not like this, but these pictures are making me want to steal your dog! So adorable! He’s worth everything he eats!

    1. Wildman says:

      I’ll take that as a complement! Labs make great pets. They love people, are athletic, and generally very intelligent. Just make sure you have the time and energy for lots of walks — and lots of patience. Especially during the puppy chewing stage. 🙂
