Spring 2003

Take our stuff, PLEASE: In mid-June we participated in our homeowner association's one-day neighborhood garage sale along with ten other families. With way too much unnecessary clutter in our basement, our primary goal was to get rid of junk rather than to make lots of money. We didn't sell as much as we would have liked, but at least now much of it is in boxes for the Goodwill!

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.
