My Belated Weekend at a Glance

Did you have a nice weekend?

Was it as warm there as it was here?  I thought I would melt several times during the day. Thank goodness for A/C!

My mother came down for the weekend.  She always comes in the beginning of school and visits my classroom and meets my kiddos and does an art lesson with them.  I like her coming at the beginning of the year because she gets to see how immature my students are.  Then when she comes at the end of the year she gets to see how far they have grown.  I'm so proud of my kiddos!

She never comes for a Holiday weekend so this weekend DC was full of events! Rolling Thunder was in town, as they are every Memorial Day.  So thankful for what they stand for, but MAN are they loud! Vrooom!  I loved that they all had flags on the backs of their seriously fancy bikes! 
Proud to Be an American!

Here's my weekend in Pictures(mainly food- SHOCKER! and a few words:-)
