Bit of blooming: We still have very little in our
backyard (we're working on getting a design drawn up), but the clematis
Amy planted last year did climb and bloom [right].
Sweet sounds: At Cameron's year-end band concert on June 2nd, he
and two friends were featured in a trumpet trio. Cool as cucumbers,
they played Kum-ba-yah. (See his album.)
A+: In late May Cameron got his scores back from the ITBS
tests he took in March (along with most other 5th graders in the U.S.).
Everyone's proud that he did exceedingly well!
Sold!: In April Jan's original lime-green racing Porsche
finally found a new home. The buyer is reportedly happy with the car, and
we are definitely happy with the liberated garage space!
Hey, y'all!: At the end of March, Jan and Amy spent a week in
Charleston, South Carolina, Savannah, Georgia, and the Okefenokee National
Wildlife Refuge. Charleston and Savannah are wonderful cities to walk, full of
Revolutionary and Civil War history and the beauty of live oaks, Spanish moss,
imposing mansions and delicate gardens. The unique ecosystem of the Okefenokee
was also well worth visiting.
