It rained again for most of the weekend but at least I got some non-humid sun today while walking between CVS and the office. MoBob is back on the job market and it's worked out schedule-wise since he's a Ramadan night owl now.

I have a new calling (volunteer position at church) to coordinate volunteer work in our congregation, and I've already started attending meetings for the Capitol Hill Group Ministry. I spoke to an all women cohort of Payne fellows (future Foreign Service Officers) at Howard University who impressed me with their energy and appreciation. Z had a looong Memorial Day weekend (Thursday, Friday, and Monday) which was filled with playdates and rain. MB took him to the DC Duck Race and the splash park. I attended a dinner for the local PTAs and neighborhood institutions, and saw some of the other parents whom I'd met at policy events as well as Captain Trent who took us on the Anacostia boat ride. As the school year winds down, Z enjoyed his last session of karate and his last French class. We hosted a number of lady friends for Ramadan dinner with ten more nights to go.


pool time = official start of summer


We built a car for the "drive-in movie" at school.


Z wasn't so impressed despite the license plate.


DC Jazz Festival family day at the Phillips Collection was fun but tiring.


For Mystery Reader day, I read "It's Ramadan, Curious George!" and MB distributed dates.




We got dressed up for the school's annual fundraiser but someone else stole the show.

The humidity here has been horrendous over the last week - my bones bones and hair have suffered dreadfully.
