Last Day of Third Grade

Time flies when you're 8, almost 9. Here he is, rounding out his 3rd grade year.

First Day to Last Day of Third Grade!

Spring Baseball

Evan was a River Dog this year for Little League Spring baseball. It was his last year in the Rookie, machine pitch league. By the second half of the season he was a consistent hitter, and really started to find his groove with the game.

In a fun twist, his team had really started to come together and got on a winning streak towards the end of the regular season. They were last going into the playoffs, and ended up making it all the way to the championship game. They lost to an undefeated team, but they played hard and did an amazing job. Go River Dogs!

Evan and the Spring Play

Evan decided he wanted to work behind the scenes in his school's Spring Play, Dummling and the Golden Goose, so he was the official Stage Manager. This meant a lot of work though, and filling in when needed, learning lines, etc. Towards the end, the Director thought he did such a good job that she asked him if he'd be *in* the play too. He was recognized in the introductions for all of his hard work and we couldn't be more proud. He was an excellent Inn Keeper and Stage Manager.

Easter 2017

I love it when Easter is in April and the weather is usually a bit warmer. It makes it so much nicer for egg hunting. We dressed up and went to church as usual, then the kids came home and searched for all their loot.

Spring Break

Evan and Dan get two weeks off for Spring Break. This happened to coincide with my busy season for work commitments so we didn't go on any week long trips as we had hoped, but we did take some day trips with the kids. We did Louisville Slugger with Evan, and he posed with his fellow Evan (Longoria). Yes, it's a big reason Dan liked the name when we were trying to name Evan. Longoria was Rookie of the Year in 2008.

Then we finally took the kids up to the Indianapolis Children's Museum. It was a HUGE hit with both of them.

Lugging my "big" camera around a museum with two kids for the day finally convinced me to jump on the mirrorless bandwagon. I'm still learning, but I looooove my little Fuji powerhouse. As with the Nikon, Evan was the first to pose for me, even if he was distracted and non-smiling.
