World Series Fever!

For the first time since 1933, and first in the current franchise’s 15-year history, the Washington Nationals made it to the World Series. To celebrate what is always likely a rare occurrence, half the family watched a chunk of game 1 at Nationals Park while the team was in Houston – where our hometown team…

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!

On the Field Again

For the second time, we got up close and personal with the field at Nationals Park, as the Nats took on the Padres in an extra-inning winner. O was a more active participant this year, and while it was a long day, it was a good time by all!

Some Sweet, Even Elite, Basketball

Thanks to our favorite host team – the Hoyas – we got access to purchase NCAA East Regional finals tickets at Capital One Arena. While we had no direct ties to the Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight contenders (Duke, Michigan State, LSU and Virginia Tech), it was still an amazing, high-energy experience – with some…

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!

Spring Ball!

Taking full advantage of a school day off, 3/4 of the family went south for some sun and warmth in Florida. Some of us had our second springtime baseball experience, and all of our first at Ed Smith Stadium as the Orioles hosted the Red Sox. It felt great after many, many weeks of cold…

Springtime Ball

Colin’s first weekend of t-ball felt a whole lot like winter, but the cold did not dampen his enthusiasm! He, along with his team of Mariners, had a strong showing on the field and off (they know how to have a good time on the playground too!).

First Hoya Game for One of Us

Winter brings a great sport to watch – college basketball! And this family enjoys watching the Hoyas at home, this time competing – and winning – against local opponent Howard. It was Owen’s first game, and he and Colin got to meet Jack for the first time. Quite a fun outing!

Fall Sports Roundup

C has a very ambitious fall with tee-ball and swimming to keep him busy as the temperature begins to drop. During his first-ever swimming lessons without a parent in the pool, C jumped in with all the enthusiasm needed to be a star student. He approached baseball the same way, gearing up for an active…
