|Picture not from this weekend, but that's Nana, and it was her birthday celebration, thus the picture...|
I decided to make this weekend extra long and went down on Friday evening--the concert was on Saturday night. Man, I love that place. It's crazy how you run into people there. For example, I went to the Blue and White swim meet Saturday morning and saw Lea with her dad Eddy (Lea = my third cousin and Ed = my dad's second cousin). We talked about how they had just seen Grandma and Grandpa Luke and Uncle Jeff and Aunt Karen at a family get together the weekend before--we just talked like we'd known each other forever. A year ago I didn't even know Lea and her family were family, then she came to Hillsdale to play basketball and I've met a bunch of family I never knew I had and it's like we've known each other forever. So cool! More typical Hillsdale moments included a trip to the Arb and Oakley's, staying in the Budd's luxurious guest room overlooking Baw Beese, practicing OMM (thank you, Ben, for having a bad back!), watching some Charger football, studying in Lane 234 (the classroom I sat in on for my visit and also had my first real Hillsdale lecture in--English with Dr. Cuneo), and sweet potato fries at the Hunt Club. Anyways, a solid weekend all around. And the good news, homecoming is only a month away!
My Mom always stay at the Rooms at Grayfield when she comes to town. Didn't you LOVE it?! It's just so tastefully done.ReplyDelete
