Other fragrant and wild varieties of spring blossoms are popping up everywhere.
Mike's intense focus this week has been the upcoming FIRST robotics world championship. Some 40 of us, including team members and parents and mentors, will be traveling in a double decker bus belonging to LightRider Ministries to St. Louis next Wednesday, April 22, and returning the 25th, late. There is so much planning and communicating involved, as well as the numerous practical details to work on.
Michael finally located the type and size trailer he'd been looking for in Southern Indiana and spent most of Monday traveling there to purchase and bring it back.
Tuesday the team will pack the equipment and decorate the trailer.
Mike was among the local artists who displayed some of their work during the festival. I stopped by Rob Allen Jewelers, one of the venues, to see what it looked like.
The second shocker occurred during the extraction when two teeth instead of one came out firmly attached by a pocket of infection that remained intact. The dental assistant was amazed, she'd never seen anything like it.
Can you see how tightly Leah's hands are clasped? What you can't see is the shaking.
Thursday, I enjoyed watching Malachi do his thing on the track field.
I was invited to stop by Sam and Kristie's afterwards for dinner. I was excited to see them, it had been a while.
Jude was especially happy to see me. We had great fun playing together making all kinds of different animal noises.
An added pleasure was to visit with their two guests: Jason Barrows, a musician; and Aaron Hoch, who used to be a regular at Monday Night Meals until they moved away.
Friday evening was so beautiful. Micheal invited me for our first tandem ride of the season!
Soon we will be off to World Championships! Follow the event online live here. Team 1720 plays on Newton field.
