Spring has Sprung

Spring was welcomed in this weekend with some beautiful weather and a very busy itinerary!

Elisa & Papa spent a sweaty afternoon going through some softball drills while Gabriella spent the afternoon with her classmates, and Sylvia’s new dog, Rosie.  On Saturday morning, the girls attended their softball evaluations, and did really well.  Gabriella did great, especially considering the little time she got to prepare and the age group she is starting in and Elisa stood out as one of the better players, as long as she kept her glove up 🙂

We then rushed from there to see Zia preforming “Bugs Bunny at the Symphony” with The Delaware Symphony Orchestra. It was a great performance, and Zia worked her “bow” off from the first down beat.  After the performance, we stopped by to visit Nonno for Saint Joseph’s day on our way to cheer a friend on at a carbo-loading party before her 10 mile run/race the next day.

Sunday morning was spent at service (UUFLB) which started with a stirring performance by two talented youth, Sylvia & Gabriella (check out the video below). For service we had a special guest minister, Craig Anthony Rubano, who treated us to a wonderful service, full of fun, song and a wonderful message.

After service, Gabriella, Mama & Papa went to help Aid for Friends, along with several other UU’s for the afternoon.  Gabriella really impressed us, not only with sacrificing her Sunday, but with the hard work she put in cooking eggs for almost 2 hours straight!  It was an honor to work side-by-side her and Papa really enjoyed “working the line” and wouldn’t shut up about “the old days” at HoJos. :) 

We’re looking forward to another busy weekend next week, when we travel to Franklin to visit our friends the Fabians, and our Tae Kwon Do family in New Bedford, where Joke will be evaluated for her preparations towards her 3rd Dan test, next Fall (September 10, 2011). Look for another post next week!
