2. We have fresh strawberries! Yum. I have had them on cereal several times. I made my husband strawberry shortcake but I am indifferent to SS. I love them on cereal best!
3. Today at school in the continuation of winding down the year we took a field trip to a golf course. The kids have been golfing in P.E. Rain theatened and many classes cancelled trips but we grow them tough in third grade and went. The weather gods smiled upon us and the weather was great but began down pouring soon after we arrived back at school! The kids learned about making holes (putting in the cups) on the putting greens, got to learn how the mower works and see it work, they all practiced putting and were amazed at how hard it was. One of the favorite things was driving the balls at the driving range. They even talked me into trying it and I think I made several of them feel good by how bad I was! The other favorite was - no surprise - the ride in a golf cart! We then ate lunch outside before touring some of the athletic facilites of the college we were at. Many of the kids go home thinking, "Yeah, college might be okay!" Some of the behavior was less than what you usually see on a golf course. That is discouraging when kids just don't appreciate the opportunities you are providing. But most of the kids were great and loved it.
4. Since I knew the weather was going to be lousy and I had a meeting after school I got up at 5 a.m. and ran. I love it when I do this which is very rare! But I just have such a hard time getting up that early!
5. Last but not least in less than a week I will be in DC with my daughter!! We will run, race, eat, and catch up on all the things going on in each others lives. I miss seeing her on a regular basis. Yes, I saw her at Boston but that naturally was all about the marathon. And she was home for VCM but much of her time was connecting with friends. This visit - it's all about Emily and me!!!!
Last visit to DC in the fall
