Playing Frisbee Golf with Monaghan's

Minjae enjoyed an afternoon of hiking and playing Frisbee gold with the Monaghan family. There son Daniel is a year older than Minjae. The two younger boys are in my daughter and son's class at St Dominic School. Mrs. Monaghan called and asked Stephanie and I if she could steal Minjae away for the afternoon and he had an absolute blast. It was beautiful weather for it as well. Couldn't ask for anything better.

Stations of the Cross Mime

Each year during Lent the 7/8th grade students at St Dominic School put on a meme show of the Stations of the Cross. The entire show is a very somber, serious remembrance of 12 scenes from Jesus last day on earth. The boy in white was Jesus and the girl in blue was Jesus' mother Mary. many Catholic people in the community come to the church to watch this presentation and to remember the sacrifice of Christ.

Minjae did a good job with his role. The students move slowly and deliberately around the stage, while a narrator explains what is happening in each station. Jacob and Izzy took turns off stage striking a drum to signify the changing of the scenes.

St Dominic Parent/Son Basketball Game

This is a picture from the St Dominic parent/child basketball game. That's me in the back row in the white MN Timberwolves jersey (my wife Stephanie is back row, far right, next to Minjae). My kids were not impressed with me outfit. They were embarrassed and kept calling me a "try-hard" because I was taking the game so serious. It was super fun. I guarded Minjae and he had a harder time getting by me than he anticipated. And of course, there was Domino's pizza which the boys absolutely crushed!

The parent/child game happens at the end of every basketball season. I cannot describe how impressed I am at Minjae's basketball skill development. He has worked so hard to improve his dribbling and shooting. Often times he walks quietly out of our house and goes out to shoot hoops in the cul-de-sac. He'll shoot alone, in the cold, or even in the drizzle. He doesn't seem to mind. He just likes having the ball in his hands and his hard work shows.

Holding Baby Isaiah at The Cheesecake Factory

Minjae is very good with little kids. This is a picture of him holding my nephew Isaiah. We were at The Cheesecake Factory celebrating my mom's birthday. Minjae ordered steak for dinner. Meat is one of his favorite foods and he said the Cheesecake Factory steak was really good.
