TJ's travel baseball Coach's wife passed away suddenly the other day. The whole "Thunder" team went to the wake together ( as did much of Lombard). When you play travel baseball, you spend a lot of time together and form a tight bond. Coach Ross is possibly the best coach TJ has ever had. To pick 12 kids in May and put a team together, then go on to win 4 trophies out of 5 tournaments says something. These boys with the help of all 4 coaches, just clicked from day 1. They are a force to be reckoned with.
I can't believe how grown up TJ looks
We stopped to get TJ's costume. After trying on many funny masks, TJ saw it, Burger King. It was so worth the $60 + price tag. He wore it in the car to pick up Cal from Glenn Westlake Middle School. While waiting for Cal to come out after Cello, people walking by would do a double take.
Karrick had his 1st school field trip. They went to the Cosley Zoo in Wheaton on a big yellow school bus! Each student got to pick a pumpkin and an apple "the most delicious apple ever" "There were farm animals and duck-a-lings, mom"
I do wash the red striped shirt occasionally.
Can you guess which pumpkin TJ carved? Can you say therapy?
Just a cute picture of Cal. He came up to say good night and talk about school. Cal, for the 1st time seems interested in school. His 4th grade teacher is very Science oriented. He also is taking an interest in reading...Fiction that is. Cal only would read encyclopedia's before...no joke. Unfortunately they don't qualify for AR points. He told me that he is doing Algebra and is "kinda, being challenged... finally"
