Another year, another Easter.
We started it Sand Point CC — brunch with the Miksis fam.
From there it was some much-needed r&r — J.B. Holmes won the Shell Houston Open.
After that it was dinner at home with the Miksis clan — dessert was a few games of Yahtzee.
A few pics:

Today was a very unique, busy and memorable day.
In the morning, Reese’s Huskies soccer team played their season opener at Garfield High School.
A maturing Reese played quite well — and scored one of her team’s six goals.
Finn scored a goal in one of his team’s afternoon games. (Note the kid in the photo: looks above twice Finn’s size.)
In the afternoon, Finn’s Scorpions soccer team played two games at Arena Sports. The Scorps lost both games quite handily against much older opposition.
On the plus side, however, Finn scored one of his team’s three goals.
Two kids, two goals.
Two very proud parents.

Today Finn and I headed over to Montlake Field for his first-ever football practice.
Not much to say about it other than I’m guessing this flag football thing is gonna stick.
Same drill, different angle. We didn’t win this one, either.
Wrapping things up.
A proud papa.

Last night I led the Zeeks Pizza Penguins in an unofficial tee ball practice.
It was our third unofficial practice this season, the “unofficial” part being the consequence of a very-delayed release of our “official” practice schedule.
That we had a practice isn’t what made the hour memorable.
What made it so fun was my introduction of burpees to the 5-6 year old band. First, as a warmup; second as a penalty for fundamentally incorrect fielding; and finally as a penalty for players who failed to hustle to first base after making contact with the tee-propped ball.
I figured some parents might take issue with my methods — but I was wrong. The only e-mails I received from parents were supportive, including one from a dad that had me laughing out loud:
Nick before practice …
Nick during practice …
A Penguin, after practice.

On Friday night Rhonda and I joined a couple of hundred or so Laurelhurst Elementary parents for the LES Auction, 2015 version.
It was our first-ever trip to the auction and it was a lot of fun. The venue was Club Husky at the remodeled, track-free Husky Stadium — my first-ever trip to my alma mater’s home field. The auction was full of exceedingly friendly parents and some pretty great stuff to bid on, including a couple of items procured by none other than yours truly.
Downside was how I felt the next morning (not good), but I’m pretty sure I wasn’t alone.
We were no. 169
A 4th grade class project inspired by the art of Klare Reis. We didn’t win this one.
I liked this one. We didn’t win it, either.
Mimi, Jen, Tisha and Julie. The Auction brain trust.
