Weekend Recap

What a great weekend.

~CJ's softball team won Friday. It was a gorgeous night to be outside, and we had a fantastic time.

~CJ & I had a very successful trip to the garden center. We brought back lots of pretties, which I'll proudly show off on June 13th

~I finished reading The Appeal by John Grisham, and can resume my Spring Reading Thing reading. (I'd been on the wait list at the library for months, and had to take it when I could get it). It wasn't my favorite Grisham book, but still a pretty good read.

~I'm now a St. Louis Rams fan

Not only is Chris Long a tremendous athlete, he's a class act. Listening to the announcers at the NFL draft praise him for his actions off the football field, I was even more proud that he played at my alma mater. He's represented UVA well, and we will miss him next year. (As CJ said yesterday, "How are we going to win without him?")

~Did you know Paul Revere never shouted, "The British are coming!" He quietly told people, "The British regulars are coming out!" Also, he didn't see the 2 lanterns in the Old North Church, though he did arrange for the signal. As you can tell, the history project is finished! I'm hoping it's the last one of the year. (We've had 6 school projects this year!)

Hope your weekend was wonderful, too.

my weekend was excellent, too- glad we have that in common ;)

Been in the Old North Church. The history in Boston is so fascinating... wish I appreciated history when I was learning it in school ;)

His Girl,

I've been to the Old North Church, too. Boston is my favorite city. I've only been once, but I'm ready to go back anytime!

I'm glad I don't have to worry about school projects ..... yet .... or homework for that matter. In due time, I guess.

Interesting facts, though.
