Looking good Hunter! Scotty is a handsome boy.
Rick, good luck with the move tomorrow. I know moving can be a real hassle but it is also exciting!
I had a very interesting day. One of my responsibilities with my job is to act as the Social Studies Curriculum Specialist. The 7th grade at one of our middle schools took their students to the Marine Corp Museum at Quantico today and I went as an extra chaperone. I was given a group of three boys, all very well behaved and fun to be around.
The museum is amazing. Very informative and interactive. The actual flag flown at Iwo Jima is there. While we were looking at it, a volunteer came up and starting talking about when he fought at Iwo Jima. He is a 88 year old former marine named Frank Matthews. He landed at Iwo Jima on the first wave. He was 18 years old. The boys listened to him talk about his experiences so respectfully. And when he was finished, they all shook his hand. I did too. There are not many WWII veterans left alive and it was a gift to be able to hear him give a first hand account. I am truly honored to have had that chance. It was worth the 1.5 hour ride on a school bus!!
I call him my handsome!
