What a week!!

03May09

This has been an incredibly crazy busy week and it’s only going to continue to be full of excitement, changes and events. We started the week off with incredibly high temperatures.  Monday was in the 80s and Tuesday was excruciatingly hot–in the 90s already.  It was a fluke, though, and the heat was gone by […]


Believe it or not, Marc and I have had a few brushes with greatness this weekend.  I will recount them for you–and you may tell me that you think they don’t count (you’ll see what I mean), BUT they happened to us (or people we know) all weekend.  I don’t often encounter fame, so I […]

[…]

05Sep08

Ahhhh, Saturday!  It’s early on a Saturday morning.  Marc’s still in bed and I have a chance to think about the end of this week. As I mentioned, it’s been really busy.  We finished out our group at Orchard Gardens.  We covered Media Literacy on Wednesday, Healthy Relationships on Thursday and on Friday we played […]
