  • Brenna spent a part of Friday April 30th at Steekee School.  She was invited to spend a part of the day there as a part of the Pre-K roundup.  The school gets an idea of the size of the incoming class and the kids get a taste of what is coming in the fall.
  • Nicklas’ baseball team won their first game of the season – the third game on their schedule – 13 to 1 Thursday night.  As a reminder, Nick plays for the Red Sox.  They beat the Yankees. For any baseball fan there’s something poetic about that, eh?
  • Nicklas’ school science fair project won second place this past Monday – April 26th – and is eligible to take his project to the county science fair Monday, May 3rd.  Details of how his project does at the Loudon County science fair coming soon!
  • Nick played his first baseball game of the season Thursday, April 22, 2010.  His team lost.  Their next game is Tuesday, April 27, 2010….at 7:45 PM!
  • Nicklas was invited to join the local Boy Scout Troop on their annual spring hike Sunday the 18th.  They invite the Webelos from the Cub Scout Pack to join them to aid in the transition from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts.  This years trip is to Lookout Mountain down in Chattanooga.  The boys will hike up the mountain, spend an hour at the top for lunch, and hike back down the mountain all in four hours.  As an added bonus Troop 215’s Committee Chairman, Active Duty Army Colonel John Cardwell, will be joining them for the trip up the mountain.  Col. Cardwell is a world renowned Civil War historian who’s narratives of the battles in the area ought to make this hike one Nicklas won’t soon forget!
  • Brenna made a new friend at Nicklas’ baseball proactive Saturday the 17th.  The two of them played together nearly the entire practice time….climbing, crawling, rolling, in, on, or through nearly every available pile of red dirt they could find together.  She was covered from heard to toe.  So much so that she turned the bath water that night into a murky orange soup!  Her new friends name you ask?  Michaela.  It’s a small world……
  • Brenna’s has gotten two books from the Imagination Library since getting her March book. Her new books are “The Ladybug Girl” and “Otis”.
  • Brenna and Mimi had girl’s day out on Tuesday the 13th.  A trip to the library for the story telling and crafts, lunch with Mimi, and running a few errands filled her day…and wore her out!
  • Nicklas will play his first baseball game of this season with his team, the Red Sox, Thursday the 22nd.  For now they are still practicing on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
  • Easter Sunday the three members of the family remaining in New Haven went to Sitay & Grumpa’s for Easter dinner and the traditional egg hunt.  Both kids did well in the egg hunt. A great time was had by all!
  • Easter Sunday Paul left to return to Knoxville.  He started his new job with EnerNex on Monday the 5th.  The kids stayed behind to spend break week with Mumma
  • Friday the 2nd, we all went to Pump It Up in Macomb Township with our New Haven neighbors and their kids.  The kids got to play for a few hours on inflatable castles, slides, and other HUGE blow up playscapes.  They also got to take part in a pizza party for lunch, an Easter egg hunt, and pictures with the Easter Bunny.  We’d never heard of the place before…but the kids had a BLAST!
  • Spring Break began for Nicklas at the end of the school day April 1st.  Nick was picked up at school and the three of us returned to Detroit for the Easter holiday and spring break week.
