Topeka Shockwave vs. Cubs

Topeka Shockwave, FTW!!!
Here is a ridiculous amount of photos from Cade's baseball game today.  He had 2 hits, 2 RBI's and numerous plays at FB to help the Shockwave win 8-6 over the cubs.  As an added bonus, Grandpas Art and John, Grandma Pat, Aunt Gigi and cousin Eliana got to see Cade play today as well.  It would have been a perfect day were it not for the sandstorms throughout the entire game!  Come on, Ken Berry!  Hose down those fields once in a while, would ya?

A Poetry Reading...

Last week, Cade's class had a poetry reading.  The students memorized a poem of their choice and were also required to write one of their own.  They were allowed to have 'actors' help act out the poems if they chose to.  The first video is the poem Cade chose to memorize.  The second video is the poem he actually wrote.  Believe me, you won't believe your ears when you hear Cade's poem.  I had no idea he was so...poetic.

Are you as shocked as I was?

Super Moon

Did you know that tonight the moon was closer to earth than it has been in a really long time?  Something like 17K miles closer?  Cade and I went out around 9 this evening and were amazed at how spectacularly bright it was.  I don't recall ever seeing it this illuminated before.  It was awesome:

Anybody else expect to see Elliot and ET to go flying by?  No?  Me either.

Lydia Unplugged

Anybody out there remember VH1's Storytellers back in the 90's?  This is Lydia's version of it.  This is the kind of impromptu concert we're treated to many nights.  Enjoy!
