The Next Half...

So half of 2011 is officially over. July has arrived, ushering in the second half of the year. I'm looking forward to the next few months and the activities they hold!

I have a daughter who will be celebrating her 16th birthday in July; can you believe it? She is so smart and beautiful and funny, but how can she be 16????? How can she be learning to drive a stick shift, talking about colleges, earning her own money, and buying her own stuff? Her special day is very close to our country's "birthday" so our festivities tend to overlap. Flag birthday cakes and fireworks in the evening. She is my jewel and she is growing up.

This month we will be participating in another family tradition: attending a Greensboro Grasshoppers game.  If you have never experienced an evening out at the NewBridge Bank Park you are missing out. The seating is affordable, the food is plentiful, and the silliness both on and off the field is a given! You just go with the flow and enjoy the fun. Oh yeah, there's a baseball game too.

Other things I'm looking forward to?

A trip to the US National Whitewater Center. We will insist that my 19 year old son  be our rafting guide when we brave the white water! It's his job, after all, and it's our job to embarrass him.

A drive to Virginia to visit my sister, and hopefully a trip to Fairystone State Park.

Participating in a memorial walk/run in September.

A night of watching the Greensboro Opera  perform "La Boheme".

A chance to take in a theatre performance in October as part of the "Free Night of Theater 2011".

An opportunity to see the Greensboro Ballet dance, perhaps their annual Christmas offering.

And maybe I will be lucky enough to listen to Bel Canto sing!
