Since the start of summer, Alan’s been in the market for a new bicycle. Tonight we found the perfect 20″ green Schwinn mountain bike at Dick’s Sporting Goods!
Alan loved the color, the number of available gears (7), and the front and rear lights. I also liked the adjustable seat and the front and rear brakes. Once I saw how this one excited Alan, I knew we weren’t going to leave the store without it.
Now Alan’s ready to ride this summer!
Alan performed “Ecossaise” beautifully today at the Music Settlement’s annual Suzuki Solo and Graduation Recital. He’s becoming a pro at recitals now!
The performances were followed by the end-of-year picnic and awards presentation. Alan was once again among those recognized for meeting the 100-day practice challenge.
After the event, Alan cashed in his Music Settlement scholarship with Magna-Tiles and Magtastix!
6/4/19 Update: Alan performed a duet of “Berceuse” at John Carroll tonight with his Tuesday night Suzuki [method] partner, Pascal. On Tuesdays this year at the Music Settlement, Alan played with both Pascal and George until George moved out of state midway through the year.
This weekend Baker Mayfield held his first ever football camp at Mayfield High School. Alan did not participate in the camp, but we stopped by the football field to watch the camp for a little while, since it was in our backyard. Baker addressed the participants and the crowd at one point. Later, after the local media finished interviewing Baker, I had a chance to speak to Mary Kay Cabot and Tony Grossi. I wished them well covering a soon-to-be winning team again!
The atmosphere at the event definitely felt like that of a Browns tailgate. Alan left with two pretty cool Baker shirts and a pack of football cards that we bought at the souvenir stand. We were both glad that we stopped by.
The summer carnival season kicked-off with Alan meeting up with Brady, Xavier, and Cassidy at the St. Clare Festival tonight. The boys enjoyed some old favorites, including the flying bananas, merry-go-round, and spinning barrel of monkeys. But Alan could not get enough of the new boats! He spent a good chunk of the 4 hours we spent at the festival on the boats – both riding solo and jointly with Brady and Xavier. He loved every minute of it.
