POD: First Ball Game of 2015


Tonight Bill and I headed to the Rogers Centre to watch the Jays take on the Rays. After losing the first 2 home games of the seasons the bats finally came to play and they wont 12-7. I’m not sure how I’m going to break it to Melissa that I’ve got to got to all the Jays home games this season. Clearly the team needs me and Bill there to win.

20150414_235039This year Jacob faces his first EQAO assessment. Ontario standardized testing, and though I’m confident that his teach is working with him and his class so that they will be ready on testing day.

POD: First day of Ball Hockey


Today we headed out to Violets first week of Ball Hockey. She was so excited to hit the ice pad and met her new team.

I think it will be great for next years hockey season.
