Peyton Manning, Memorial Day and T-Ball

I have much to update - if I would blog more often I wouldn't have to include so many events in one post!

Evan played Peyton Manning in the 4th grade Indiana history play on Friday - he did a great job, and he seemed to really enjoy it!
We spent Memorial Day at my aunt's house - the kids (and a few of the adults!) had fun playing kickball, while the adults played corn hole.
Easton didn't understand what people were doing in here - once we told him people were underground, he quit running through the graveyard!
And, last but not least, Easton has found a sport he really enjoys - t-ball!  He loves to slide into home!

I was fortunate enough to travel to Anaheim recently - I had a HS student qualify to compete at the DECA International Career Development Conference.

My two good friends Becky and Goudy:
We were headed into the mini awards session to see if she made it to the finals. Unfortunately, this year she did not qualify, but she's only a sophomore!
My roommate, Kristin, and I attended the Dodgers game. We were able to watch Manny hit a homerun (he won't be doing that for awhile!). It was DECA night...DECA members had seats under the scoreboard on the right of the photo. We bought our tickets at our hotel - Great Seats! And, we had great company behind us! Kyle works at Disneyland...we had a lot of laughs with him and his family!

The three of us decided to rent a car and drive into Hollywood - behind us in the mountains is the famous "HOLLYWOOD" sign! We had a great time seeing the sights, and seeing them get ready for the premier of Star Trek!

I spent an entire day at Disneyland - all by MYSELF! It was amazing...not the park, but experiencing it alone!! I did finally call my mom after about 4 hours of being there just so I could talk to someone! I rode the rides I wanted to ride, got to sit in the front of the monorail, shopped and ate when I wanted, and didn't have to worry about standing in long lines with crying children!

Overall, it was a great getaway! It's always a fun time meeting up with my Marketing teacher friends and celebrating Indiana students' success!

Baseball win

This stinker...he decided to walk home from the ballpark tonight, without telling me! As I was frantically looking for him, Matt tells me Easton commented about walking home! I had a nice "calm" talk with him and put him straight in the bath. While in the tub, he calls for me and asks me, "Are you still mad with me?"

Evan's team is now 4-0! Way to go Reds!

It's official! I am done with my Master's Degree - and can't be more excited! We traveled to Ball State for the ceremony...I wanted the boys to see me walk across the stage and hopefully understand that education means everything! (Easton slept through the entire ceremony!)
Easton took the above photo!

It was a great day that I have been working towards for the past 5 glad it's over! I wonder what degree I will work towards next?!
