The weekend: UO Women’s Softball with Nora, new season of sports (Spring soccer), robotics continues, and running with pals! Two complimentary tickets were offered to UO Staff for the game on Friday evening. It was my first time in the relatively new ballpark, and it was quite nice. New season of soccer for Nora. New players, a new coach and new dynamics, but always fun for her. Growing up, indeed! This is a screenshot from the South Eugene Robotics Team’s (SERT) Instagram from their competition that was held in Cheney, Washington, over the weekend. They did really well and now are on their way to the World Championships competition in Houston, Texas in two weeks (!). Jonah seems to have found his niche, as…

The bridge that crosses the Columbia River is one that I have been traversing since I was a kid and we would come from Seattle to visit my grandmother in Portland.

Safeco Field Tour

Posted on January 3, 2017

My son Jonah and I took a nice tour of Safeco Field when we were up in Seattle this past week.

Afterwards we stopped by Metzger’s Maps. Here’s a little photo album of our visit:   Safeco Field Tour by Sean Sharp on Exposure
