1. We moved ramunedrinkage (i.e. my son lucas) into his dorm at Earlham. Melissa and I reacted characteristically: I was kind of weirded out, she was teary. We now officially have an empty nest. We're proud of him, and think he'll do well, and we feel really positive about Earlham as a school, but it's a big change.|
2. The little girl across the street, Cassidy Flowers, died in a traffic accident. Her dad was driving, and is severely injured. As the paper felt obligated to point out, they were both wearing seat belts. I didn't know any of the family except to nod and say hi, but she seemed to be an awesomely sweet little girl, and everyone on the block is really sad about it.
A wonderful picture of Cassidy. She usually wore glasses, and had the huge nimbus of brown hair flying around when she was playing on the block. Even though I didn't know her, I'll miss her.
