Ben’s school hosted its annual Grandparents Day today and his Grammy was able to visit. It was a treat all around as school was only a half day as well.
Even though Ben’s team already played 2 games, today was the official opening day parade and ceremony. This year’s team is Sam Greco Construction, and we are hoping to get a win this year and break the big time losing streak that has been going on since last season.
Ben and I had a very memorable weekend. We had a chance to stay overnight he U.S.S. Massachusetts (BB-59) in Fall River, MA with the Cub Scouts Pack 528. This ship was known as the “Big Mamie” and served in World War II.
It was an absolute paradise for kids because there were so many places on so many levels to search and hide. The sleeping area was quite interesting as well. It was basically a four level bunk. We had Ben at the top, then Val, followed by myself, and Jay.
It never seemed like Ben had much interest in art, but things have changed over the last year or so. On top of his regular school art class, he has been taking Kids Art after school one day a week, thanks to Jodie. Now he seems so much more into it, and his creative side is coming out.
Recently, during his regular school art class, the kids were asked to make a print of a tree and the moon with paint. Ben’s print was selected to be showcased at the Sand Lake Arts Center.
Ben told me that he spent several days making his print, and at times he had closed his eyes imagining the tree and moon that he painted. We couldn’t be more proud of him.
