April School Break 2017

James has a week off school in February and in April. Unfortunately, Kevin's week off is in March. So we were stuck at home, but luckily a million things were happening here. James had 3 t-ball games during Spring Break (including his first game on 4/8), a playdate, and our library did free professional photos.

Erika at PWR Reading Series 2017

On Wednesday, Erika read from her book, The Book of Speculation, at Stony Brook University for the Program in Writing and Rhetoric's Reading Series. This is the reading series that Kevin created and organizes at work. It went really well!

First T-Ball Game 2017

The first game was a home game versus Thunder. All though that's a big joke because all the games are the exact same field. We had individual and team pictures beforehand and then the Emeralds started in the field.

Parents are SO ready!

T-ball is adorable and when the kids go up to bat they always get to go to the next base. When the last kid is up to bat, he "gets a home run" and all the players run home. I didn't get this at first at thought Thunder was destroying us. But it quickly started making sense when I saw James stay at first even after the first baseman got the ball there. I could have cried with happiness. I thought he was going to be out right away.

PJFL Butterfly Story Craft 2017

T-ball was cancelled last minute because the field was soaked so we drove straight to the library and got in some butterfly and caterpillar crafts before butterfly story time. Woo!

Grandma Visits- March 2017

Grandma visited last weekend. She played with the kids, went to James's first t-ball practice, made some delicious corn chowder for us, let us go out on a date night, set up a little "Easter Egg hunt" (peanut M&Ms), and even got to visit with her friend on Long Island.
