The gorgeous hydrangea's
I was invited to accompany Bishop Martin and his family to the graduation of their son Tyler from
Tyler with grandparents, sisters, mom & dad
I was the teacher for our monthly card group and created a tag and a card.. I showed how to create 3 dimensional flowers to embellish each. Everyone loved the new techniques they learned and I loved teaching the class and spending time with my friends from the 1st ward..
Since Sister Brown was still out of town and Sister Ramon having her family in town I was on my own to drive to the temple this week. Driving on the beltway around DC is getting easier each time I go up to the temple.. The traffic in DC makes driving in
a piece of cake.. It was a beautiful day and the temple was busy and I had a
wonderful day there.. Phoenix

Our entire mission attended the "Washington Nationals" baseball game on Thursday and it was so fun. I met up with the Murdock's and the Pittman's at the
metro station and we rode up to the game together. The metro stop is right at the Nationals
stadium.. It was in the 80's and a beautiful day for a game.. The new hot
player for the "Nats" is Bryce Harper and so I had to get a Harper shirt.. Many of the young missionaries
thought I was his grandmother... but alas ..not so.. They showed our entire
mission on the jumbo screen a couple of times..
When the game was over it seemed like the entire crowd was taking the
metro home.. thank goodness most of them were going north and we were going
south, so we got on the first train.. What a fun day..
I made 12 phone calls on Friday to set up some appointments and left many messages and finally was able to make 2 appointments. I then drove down to have lunch with Annette. Annette is the caregiver of her 90 year old father and he is sharp as a tack. It was a very fun lunch and visit.
Each evening that the Blue Crab baseball team has a home game they shoot fireworks off after the game.. Our apartment is about 1/2 mile from their field and since we are on the 3rd floor we have a birds eye view of the fireworks several nights a week. When I went to the game last week and it was rained out we got tickets for this week on Saturday.. So Sister Brown and I both got to go with the group from
Today we net with the RS presidency of the Calvert ward.. to introduce ourselves and share with them what our mission is all about and what we will be doing when we start serving in their ward the first of July. They wanted to know if we couldn't start right now and we had to let them know that we still had 3 weeks to serve in Patuxent and
