Memorable Memorial Day Weekend

I learned how to ripstick on Saturday afternoon and became quite good at it by yesterday afternoon. I taught about ten other people how to do it including my mom :)

I was getting too confident, though, at one point yesterday and tried to do the opposite foot. welllll that didn't work out so well for me because I wiped out pretty bad and did a number on my elbow and got the wind knocked out of me. I really want to learn how to do jumps or something cool but now I'm a little nervous. Maybe next weekend.

Went camping yesterday for the night and we thoroughly enjoyed it. What a way to start the summer!! Messed around on the ripstick, biked, walked, played baseball, sidewalk chalk, bonfire, cooked over the fire, slept in the tent. Whew!! What a day!

Then today I did my first ever nine holes. As in GOLF! We ate delicious chicken-ka-bobs at Liz's parents' house and then she suggested we go golfing - her brother had some clubs we could use so we hit the course. The best I did was a double bogey. Twice.

Now I'm completely exhausted but this is the last week (exams!) so I'm not too worried.

Graduation was on Saturday morning and I have to say, it's a great way to say goodbye to those students. End on a happy note!

Happy Memorial Day to you all. I hope you had a chance to reflect and remember those you've lost and those who've died for all of us.
