United 93... Is it too soon?



There is much debate on whether United 93, the movie about 9-11 and the flight that crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. Was it made and is it being released too soon?

I will be going to see this movie. What about you? Is it too soon?

A New Born Baby's Cry

There is something about a new born baby's cry... communication at it's rawest form. Hearing your child make sounds is amazing, even if it is a cry.

Called Dutch Jr. (3 years old) on the way home yesterday. Asked him how his day was, what he wanted to do when I got home and what his new little sister was doing. He replied "she is sleeping... Dad, did you know that she came out of Mommy's tummy the other day?". Yes, son... I knew that!

The Holland House is thankful for the gifts, emails, calls, visits and meals that our friends and family have given since The Dutchess arrived!

Baseball is here and the Holland House is Excited!



The most important sport in the Holland House...

Ever since the Dutchess and I have been married she has embraced my favorite sport, baseball, and my favorite team, the Houston Astros. The last two years have been a roller coaster ride as we have watch the Astros get past the first round of the playoffs two years ago and make it to the World Series last year.

This year they have decided to do things a little differently and get off to a great start. There are still some questions about this team, however, this House will be rooting the Astros all the way back to the World Series.... we hope!












On to the not so important sport in the H2...

As for the other team in Houston that I follow, the Texans, it has not been so fun to watch the past few years. The first two years were fun, they were an expansion team, we were able to bond with the players and watch come together as a team. Then last year they had the worst record in the league and thus arranged to have the first overall pick in the NFL Draft, which happens to be this Saturday.

Ever since Vince Young performed is stunning performance to lead The University of Texas to a Rose Bowl win and the National Championship, that first pick for the Texans has been a hot topic. I am in favor of drafting Reggie Bush and see if David Carr can be the quarterback we hope for all along. Under Gary Kubiak, I think he can. Needless to say, it will be exciting to see what happens on Saturday. One thing is for certain, the Texans can only get better!!

Just to show that Mrs. Dutch follows the Astros and baseball, I will not type another sports related post until she does...

Until then... Play Ball! Posted by Picasa
