Weekend Review, Week Preview

I made the trip to my daughter's and took her and the kids out for a birthday lunch.  Saturday, Kristen and her dad did a walkathon to end child abuse.  They raised around $400.  Great job!
We made two trips to the school playground, which is right behind their house, to swing, slide, climb.  Kristen started fourth grade this past week and Dane started preschool--so summer vacation is over.  The pool was closed even though the temperature had climbed up into the 80's, where it promises to stay for this week.  Let's just say baths were needed on Sunday night.
Kristen's elementary school has a vegetable garden.  Her class planted corn last June and she pointed out her very own stalk.  It was a good looking garden--grape tomatoes, corn, squash, pole beans, cabbage, peppers, and beautiful basil.  There are also a number of apple trees on the school grounds.  I think it's great that they have that relationship with their lunches.

Today, I will be busy with a lunch date with friends, a haircut appointment, and my writing group.  We wrote "found poems" for this week.  In between, we are packing up for one more camping trip.  As soon as we get back from that, we pack up again to travel to Connecticut for a family reunion--the D'Angelo side--which is supposed to include discussion of a cousins' trip to Italy sometime in the future.  I don't know if Mike will convinced to join in that adventure.  He did visit his mother's family in Sicily when he was in the Navy, but he seems much less inclined to travel these days.  I'd go in a heartbeat!


  1. Have a good week. Sounds like it's off to a good start.

  2. Love the pictures. Your grandkids are so cute. They look like real kids who do interesting things.


I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
