A Sweet Day

After a four-year hiatus, we returned to the land of chocolate – Hershey – for some sweets, rides and other treats. After a nearly 12- hour day, complete with a surprise bonus of family joining in the afternoon, it was a great, albeit exhausting, time.

Hoops with Friends

Colin was in 7th heaven for his 7th birthday – a basketball-themed party with friends and cousins! It was a solid 90-minutes of activities and team play, followed by a healthy dose of pizza and cake. What could be better? Happy birthday, C!

Another Season of Fall Ball

Baseball can happen year-round if there’s a desire to play, and C definitely has more baseball to play than can be done just in the spring. He met a whole new crew for fall ball, playing for the San Diego Padres. Maybe it’s time to head to the sunny West Coast for a future season!

Best of the Rest (of Boston)

We had a great 4th of July weekend in Boston, but spent more of the second half of the trip indoors as the heat truly set in and a rainy evening cooled and wet things down.

On to First Grade

What a school year it’s been. Thanks to the guidance of Ms. Gutowski and Ms. Burns, Colin has completed Kindergarten. He celebrated with a little graduation ceremony by the Extended Day program, and some fun extra treats to round out the school year!

Fiesta 5K 2019

Another year, another Fiesta 5K in support of ALS research! Team Big Walt and Mike showed up in full force to remember and honor 3 great men, once again finishing in the top 10 of fundraisers. While the commentary wasn’t as interesting as last year, Colin’s determination was just as strong – and he shaved…

Hamming it up on Stage

Colin’s first school play – the Three Piggy Opera – was a 25-minute spectacle full of laughs, cries (from the laughing) and 21 Kindergarteners singing and dancing their hearts out. Colin represented the role of Piggy #1 with true commitment. A star is born…

Eggs on Eggs on Eggs

For the fifth year in a row, the Kohrs and Tuckers assembled for some egg dyeing chaos. Luckily, it was a nice day so they could burn a little energy outside beforehand, but it was still quite the crazy adventure nonetheless!

Another Season to Play Ball!

Compared with last year, it was a gorgeous opening day for Arlington Little League as the Mets took on the Cardinals. Colin had three at bats with some solid hits, and played the field well. Here’s to a great season!
