Back at Camp Horizons

In what seemed like a flash, Colin was excited for another stint at Camp Horizons. Drop off day was smooth sailing, hopefully the sign of things to come for the whole camp.

Another Hot Father’s Day

It’s been six years since we sweated it out at Camden Yards for Father’s Day, and we did it again – this time, without the on-field visit. The O’s got a nice win over the Phillies, so braving the heat was ultimately worth it!

Seeing the Soccer GOAT

June 14th brought more than the last day of school, as that night Lionel Messi was in town with Team Argentina to face Guatemala in a friendly match. It was a fun surprise to kick off summer, and Messi didn’t disappoint – scoring 2 of Argentina’s 4 goals and helping lead his team to victory!

End of an era

And just like that, the school year was over! We said goodbye to Glebe, as C moves to middle school. And, O started the year in one school and ended in another. So it was a memorable 10 months for sure!

Big Day!

June brought a lot of action, but perhaps the biggest day to date was Colin’s promotion to middle school, combined with a playoff final run for the 50/70 Cubs. While the game didn’t end with a W, the team still won the National League division for the season and league runners up, and were a…

Math Dice

Who knew a little-known game like Math Dice would earn C and his classmates glory in a county-wide competition?! Following individual competitions, a team challenge and a team chant, the Glebetrotters emerged as the tournament runners up. It was the first time the school placed in the tournament’s 17-year history!

Dual Opening Day

Although baseball season is nearly over, it was a momentous kick off in April when both boys participated in opening day festivities. The A Nationals and the 50/70 Cubs represented among the Arlington Little League teams that day. Throw in the Oriole Bird and a former O’s player (Mike Bordick), and it made for quite…
