The Fourth Grade violin concert was last week – Alistair’s school and another elementary school in town played together.





The very next morning was the school’s Memorial Day program.  Somehow Alistair always ends up in the front row, despite not being a particularly enthusiastic singer.


And sure enough, before too long he wasn’t paying attention at all.  Ah well.


On Sunday we went on a geocache hike to a lesser-known part of the Middlesex Fells.  We were up there for more than an hour, and saw only two other people – that never happens.


You come suddenly upon a clearing with a crazy old tower.


The view from the top isn’t as spectacular as some others in the Fells; the tower isn’t tall enough.  Plus is was pretty overcast.

Nonetheless, we managed to find two geocaches – including Larson finding his first one!


And then Larry found the second one, in the parking lot.


Monday was Memorial Day, and I participated in the Wear Blue: Run to Remember initiative.  I’m very fortunate to say that everyone I know who has been deployed, has returned.  So I asked for a fallen soldier to run for, and was assigned Marine Captain Jesse Melton III.  I printed out my bib, pinned it to my blue shirt, and went out.  It was raining, so I zipped up my rain jacket and put on a hat first.  I had planned to run 3 miles, but since I can run and Captain Melton no longer can, I did 3.5 in his memory. I feel honored to be able to do so.
