437-drew-with-trophies.jpg

Drew's t-ball team, the Cobras, finished the regular season in first place. This earned Drew his very first trophy. In a post-season tournament, Drew's team got third place for which Drew got a medal. There's still one more tournament we will probably play in and a chance for another trophy/medal. Tonight, the team had a special presentation where each child was called up one at a time to collect their hardware. (I took pictures and made them available to everyone).

438-drew-with-coaches.jpg

Drew with Coach Lack and Head Coach Rogers. All of the coaches really did a terrific job with all of the kids. They took a rag tag group of kindergartners who many literally didn't know how to get someone out or how to score a run and made a team of ball players. The coaches did it all with patience and class while keeping it a positive and fun experience for the kids. Thanks coaches!

439-cobras-team-picture.jpg

All of the Cobras players and coaches. Coach Rogers waited until everyone could be present before handing out the trophies and medals. All of the players on the team were great kids with unique personalities and skills. It was really fun getting to know them and watching them evolve into a team.

[Update:]

On the last day of school, Drew, a few of his teammates and Coach Rogers presented Principal Wilson with the two trophies the team won.

The Cobras' team trophies now proudly reside in the school's trophy case.

This weekend we had our first really crazy kids' activities weekend: four t-ball games, one piano recital, one soccer practice and an outdoor celebratory church mass...and that just involved two of the three munchkins. I'm sure we're in for far worse once all three are going full steam.

Drew is six years old and has been taking piano lessons for just 4 months. This is his first piano recital and he played perfectly from memory Old McDonald and the Dinosaur Song.

After the entire recital was over, Drew changed into his t-ball uniform and we headed to the ball field for Drew's third game of the weekend. We got there just in time to throw on a batting helmet, grab a bat and nail a base hit as the last batter in the lineup in the top of the first inning.

Vimeo version after the jump.

flick-muhammad.gif Today, May 20th, is Everybody Draw Muhammad Day. I can't draw worth a darn so I created a little animated gif of me flicking my own personal bobblehead Muhammad.

If you don't know about this important day, here is a little explanation from Wikipedia (with edits):

Everybody Draw Mohammed Day is an annual protest in support of free speech, specifically in opposition to those who threaten violence against artists who draw representations of the prophet Muhammad. It began as a protest against censorship of an American television show, South Park, "201" by its distributor, Comedy Central, in response to death threats against some of those responsible for the segment. Observance of the day began with a drawing posted on the Internet on April 20, 2010, accompanied by text suggesting that "everybody" create a drawing representing Muhammad, on May 20, 2010, as a protest against efforts to limit freedom of speech.

U.S. cartoonist Molly Norris of Seattle, Washington, created the artwork in reaction to Internet death threats that had been made against cartoonists Trey Parker and Matt Stone for depicting Muhammad in a bear costume in an episode of South Park. Depictions of Muhammad are explicitly forbidden by a few hadith (Islamic texts), though not by the Qur'an. Postings on radical Islamic websites had said that Parker and Stone could wind up like Theo van Gogh, a Dutch filmmaker who was brutally murdered and mutilated by a Muslim extremist.

So, if you want to stand up to those who would threaten your free speech then draw Muhammad...or Mohammed...or whatever the eleutherophobic pedophile's name is.
