Thursday, Flying and Food All we did this weekend was eat. OK, we caught up with friends and did some sightseeing but there was lots of good food involved. It was Heath’s high school reunion. This group focuses on the Singapore American School classes from the 50s through the 70s but anyone is welcome. I […]Read More Food, Fun and Friends.
No, we haven’t had any bad weather unless you count the heat wave. Here Comes the Thunder is the fight song for Georgia College & State University, our latest adventure in “where does Katy want to go to college”. The school mascot is a bobcat named Thunder. All I knew about the school was Katy’s […]Read More Here Comes the Thunder

It was a 10 day trip, with two days of travel. Mr. Kim, […]Read More “We don’t want to look like tourists”…
About this time last year Katy came home all excited, the orchestra was going to go to Europe for spring break “next year”. And she wanted to go.
