Memorial Day signifies the commencement of Summer in my mind. Friends, family, sunshine, and watermelon…lots and lots of watermelon. This Memorial Day was particularly exciting for me because it means I am nearing the end of my Summer school class. I have a standing tradition of attending the Conejo Valley Church of Christ Picnic with Jessica Wall’s family in the morning, and then meeting up with my family at a barbecue in the afternoon. This year we added a little extra to the end of our day and stopped by our cousins house on the way home. They had no idea we were coming, so it was perfect when we pulled up and saw them casually playing baseball in the backyard. All in all, a good day, although now it is ten times harder to go back to school work!
