The Annual Shocker

Even with a full day, there's so much I can't get done.

Mass. Independence Weekend

What a wonderful weekend. We drove over on Friday and stayed through Monday morning with dear friends from college. 

They have a farm share so we got to go pick vegetables together directly from the farm on Friday. 
Saturday we went to shul in Brandeis which literally borders our friends' backyard. 

Sunday we went to the Boston Commons to meet friends we knew in Vancouver. ND had a great time on the swan boats, the carousel and finally, playing in the frog pond. U. took off midway to go see a Red Sox game... (there was only one ticket left at the price we wanted to play and I think ND and I had much more fun doing just what we were doing.) After the frog pond we went back to our friends where we got a lesson paper-making. I hope to teach it to an after school environmental club next school year. We finished the night off with Settles Of Catan which is an awesome game if you play it with wonderful people.

I felt so at-home there and I can't help but wonder if I'll ever be able to make new friends again that I care about as much as my college ones. I was not eager to come back "home" after our trip and wonder how I can be closer to really good friends...
