こんばんは!Hi all! How was your Sunday? Mine was pretty good!

This morning, I took Koa to baseball practice and he learned a lot and had some fun. The coach has a motion sensor that attaches to the the baseball bat and can record a lot of data about the hitter’s swing, including bat speed, bat angle, etc. From that data, the coach can get a good idea of things that the hitters need to adjust in order to hit better. It was really cool! I am expecting Koa to be a big hitter this year. ⚾️

Tonight was Oscar night… the 88th Academy Awards. For the second year, our family of four had an Oscar watching party with ballots where we marked who we thought would win in all the televised categories. This year I got most of the winners correct but it actually wasn’t so fun because I had a huge lead over everyone else. I have to admit to having a good system to choose the winners, but next year I will just go by intuition instead. I feel kind of bad that I won so decisively… what can I do to make it up to them?

Oh well, watching the big show was still fun. But I get so nervous watching the speeches that I will leave the room and return when they are over. I have this thing about live performances… it fills me with so much anxiety that I’d rather not watch. 😰 Someday I need to overcome this. Or maybe I don’t. It’s not like it is a big part of my life anyways.

Today’s photo is another “Slice of life”. Our kids’ favorite lunch is instant ramen. Koa likes to put rayu (sesame and chili oil) into his, and Bay prefers cayenne pepper. They like it spicy! Looking at this photo, I noticed that Bay has some really nice hands. I think it’s because of all the piano practice he does everyday. 🎹

Well, tomorrow is Monday and the start of another busy week. Let’s do our best!

おやすみなさい!
