1.) Happy Memorial Day. Would you like me to recite "In Flanders Fields"? I just memorized it. I read it every year on Memorial Day but I'm always envious of people who have poems memorized and at the ready and I thought, I could be that person! I could be the envy of weirdos like me the world over! And now I am. Or will be until the poem decides to flit out of my brain as most things do.
2.) Even though Memorial Day is still in the spring I think we can all agree that it kicks off summer. And so it will also kick off Flat Rachel's Summer 'o Fun '010! Instead of making up an itinerary for her I have decided to just draw names out of a hat. Or, in this case, a sombrero:
Here's FR waiting on pins and needles to see who she will go to first:
Who will it be!?!?!
Andrea! What a relief. Can you imagine FR braving the Arizona sun in August with her fair skin? June is much more acceptable.
I'll be sending her off tomorrow with her sunscreen, a few books and some instructions (namely: don't keep her for more than a week; you must do one new and/or adventurous activity with her; you must document said activity; she likes a bowl of ice cream before bed.) and we'll hear all about it when she returns. This is going to be fun. Thanks for humoring me.
