Sharon and I have had some ongoing discussion over the last six months about where to send Jack to Kindergarten. Sharon is a product of Catholic schools. She attended grammar school at St. Mary's and high school at St. Francis. We had tried to get Jack into St. Elizabeth Ann Seton at Good Shepherd where we have been going to church, but got a notice about two months ago saying that he had not been accepted. We got a call yesterday afternoon telling us that a space had opened up for Jack at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton.

Drew and I had dinner at Steve's Pizza in El Dorado Hills. We talked mainly about jobs for summer and college in the fall. In some ways, it is hard to believe that Drew's high school graduation is Saturday morning.

As part of her training for the marathon, Sharon ran 8 miles this morning. When she was done with the run, Sharon called and said it was "a piece of cake." After four months of training, including running 22 miles last weekend and 19 miles three weeks ago, she is definitely ready for the marathon a week from tomorrow.

With the end of baseball last weekend, Jack is switching sports! He went to basketball practice this morning.

As part of her training for the Marathon, Sharon ran 22 miles this morning! This is the last long training run before the marathon two weeks from tomorrow.

After as many rain-outs as games, Jack finished his first T-ball season today. This is my first experience with four year olds playing organized baseball. Drew was seven in 1993 in Woodland when he played his first year of organized baseball. The game that Jack and his team, the Rookies, played this year bears no resemble to any organized sport that I have ever seen, but they sure enjoyed themselves.

Larkin and I went to game 6 of the second round NBA playoff series between the Sacramento Kings and Dallas Mavericks at Acro arena. It was a great game! The Kings won 115 to 109 forcing a game seven on Saturday night. ESPN has it right; The crowd was deafening!

Straight from Winter to Summer

When I was talking to Pat Funk on ICQ about week ago, she was asking about how Sharon was handling training for the Marathon in the heat. So far, Sharon has spent a lot more time running in the rain than in the heat. We have had a very cool damp spring; much colder and rainier than anything I can remember.

The average temperature for first week of May was 58.8 degrees, compared to 55.3 in both March and April.

The weather finally changed this week with the temperature hitting more than 88 degrees on Tuesday.

Sharon, Jack and I went with the Tom Frame's (Sharon's Brother Tom, his wife Rebecca and their two boys, Eric and Kevin) to see Morgan and Drew in Evita tonight. Morgan, Drew and Kaylen all did a great job!

Joe (Brun) and Kim DiGiorgio had a baby girl at 7:51 p.m. tonight. She is named Velta after Brun's mom and was 7 pounds 14 oz. This is their second kid; Sarah will be two in August.

And it is all Sharon's "fault..." Kim was in charge of the infant room at Jack's day care. After spending lunch's with Jack and Kim every day for several months, Sharon thought that Kim might be a good match for Brun. After some haranguing by Larkin, Boone and I over beers after playing golf at Mather, Brun asked Kim out. A trip to Paris, a wedding in Alaska, three and a half years and two kids later...

Sharon ran almost 19 miles this morning! She is training for the San Diego Rock and Roll Marathon on June 1. Sharon is running the marathon as a fund raiser for the American Stroke Association; her mom had a serious stroke in January of 2002. We want to thank everyone who has contributed! You can still make at donation at her web site

As part of her training, Sharon, Jack and I ran the Run Against Pain 10K last Saturday morning. Jack rode most of the race in a jogger, but insisted on getting out occasionally and running along side.

This afternoon, we went to a lunch in celebration of Eileen's first communion; Eileen is Sharon's niece. Sharon and Brun are Eileen's godparents.

The lunch party included Sharon's two brothers and their famlies, her parents, Brun and Jim Dunn.
