Matty, Lissa, Chad and Raef. Plus… a look at some “average joes.”

Hey, guys. It’s Chad. Since everyone has been doing “Gay porn and kids” posts, I guess it’s “our turn in the barrel.” Alyssa and Mateo are doing great. They’re settled into their new rooms and are obviously happy kids. Matty’s language skills continue to improve. When we started fostering him, Spanish was his only language so he’s had to learn English – and, of course he’s learning French and ASL in school. It’s a lot for a little guy but he’s handling it well. He loves school, being with the other kids and playing with “Bud.”
Although there’s only about a year-and-a half difference in their ages, Lissa thinks she’s his mother and honestly, she does a pretty good job at it. She’s very mature for her age (we think because she lived with Miss Evelyn for so long) and she clearly has good maternal instincts. She and Bella are best buds and when they’re not together they’re usually texting.
I’m lucky because I’m with them at school all the time, but they’re both crazy about Raef… as he is about them.
So I guess that’s what’s going on with us. We keep following the situation with covid vaccine for kids and it’s looking like it may be available early to mid November, so we’re hoping for a big, mask-free Thanksgiving. Failing that, we think the entire “Table Rock gang” will be able to enjoy a mask-less Christmas – complete with the grandparents.
Thanks to David and Ben for these “average joes” pics. Raef’s gonna love ’em!
Hugs and best wishes for good health. Chad and Raef

Dude. Put a sock on it!

Hey, guys. It’s Cal. Since Ben wants us all to update you on what’s happening with our kids, I thought I’d have a go at it.
We had a party for Bella on her 7th birthday (August 28th). (Alex says she’s 7 – going on 18 🙂 ) It was a small party (just the kids) because we’d all be getting together for Labor Day and we knew she’d think the entire weekend was to celebrate her. She’s a sweetheart. She thinks she’s in charge of all the kids… and sometimes it seems like she is… except that we all understand no one is in charge of Chance – other than Chance. Also, Dub just enjoys letting her think she’s in charge. Bella and Alyssa are best buds and she (Bella) still keeps in touch with her friend Kylie regularly. She tolerates having Dub call her “Izzie” but no one else better ever do that. She’s excited about the start of the school year and has become quite a good “potter.” Alex has incorporated several of her pieces in our decorating scheme and they’re awesome. She’s my biological daughter but I have to say Alex is her “main dad.”
Chance is 8 years old and will be 9 next month. He’s one of the most interesting people I’ve ever known. He and Bugs (his very energetic Springer spaniel pup) are pretty much inseparable – and they’re both with me almost constantly. The first thing people notice about him is he walks like me, dresses like me, talks like me and uses all the same expressions I do. (Carol calls us “big C” and “little C.”)
When the pandemic hit and we all started wearing masks most of the time, Chance struggled with it because he’s always used lip-reading to supplement his hearing. We talked with his audiologist/speech therapist about it and she said the masks might actually be a good thing for him because it would force him to rely more on his hearing and less on lip-reading. He’s a bright kid and has progressed more than we could ever have imagined. He’s the tallest of the boys and loves being with the other kids – fishing, boating, exploring and whatever. He’s a fierce “beach volleyball” competitor and is actually getting quite good at it.
So there you have it. Another episode of our soon-to-be famous “gay porn and kids” series. Hope you guys at least enjoy the wonderful pics David and Ben put together for the post 🙂 xoxo Cal and Alex

Dude. It’s time for a Friends Friday peek into Rick’s “Sex stuff” folder!

Hey, guys. It’s Rick. This is kind of a strange collection of pics. Just a bunch of fun and/or interesting stuff I’ve put in a “Sex stuff” folder over time. It’s for sure something different and I hope you enjoy it. (BTW, can someone please tell us what the tattoo on dude #07 says?)


We had a little birthday party for Bella Saturday evening and I’ll let Cal or Alex tell you about it. While we were together we were talking and Ben said he thought it’d be cool if everyone would do a post to update you on what’s happening with our kids. Chad said “Sure. What’s a porn blog without stories about children?” We all laughed – but agreed we’d do it. So here’s a bit about what’s going on with Travon. He’s eight years old now – and the joy of our lives. “Max” is with him constantly except when he’s in school. He loves spending time with the other kids fishing, boating, swimming, playing horseshoes, and exploring our area of the Lake. Jim and Scott had railroad ties and a bunch of loads of sand brought in and built a regulation 60′ x30′ “beach volleyball” court that’s been a huge hit with the whole gang. We’ve played 2 against 2, 3 against 3, 4 against 4 and 5 against 5… with a mix of kids and us older guys. We’re slowly getting better and having lots of fun (and great exercise).
Tra spent hours and hours this past Spring and early Summer doing a series of photos he titled “Rock Garden friends.” It has beautiful color photos of butterflies, hummingbirds, other birds, turtles, rabbits, squirrels and, of course his favorite black snake (all taken in our rock garden). Pop-pops picked 24 of them… got them enlarged, printed and mounted and entered them in an amateur photographers contest in Dallas. Yup. It took first place and now Tra has a blue ribbon on the wall of his room. Pop-pops says he’s a very talented young man with a big future if his interest in photography continues.
Tra is quieter than the other kids because he’s interested in and busy analyzing everything around him. He’s growing “like a weed” and is one of the most genuinely happy people we’ve ever known.
So that’s our contribution to the “gay porn and kids” theme Ben suggested. Hope you enjoy it – and don’t think it’s too strange 🙂
