|Such a busy month
for family and friends. Mom hosted the reunion this year at her
place in Olalla. We didn't have the family attend like we have in
years past. It just
seemed to be a very busy summer for everyone, recovering from
surgeries or just surviving on tight schedules and finances. Those
who did attend played plenty of horseshoes and enjoyed great
Olalla is known for it's annual Bluegrass
Festival every August. This year marked the 10th anniversary. I
worked on setting up a website for the Community Club and roamed the
ball park site taking pictures to post. In honor of our festival,
Kitsap County has now officially proclaimed the 3rd Saturday of
August as "Olalla Days".
The Dept of Defense, where I work, offered a DEFY
(Drug Education For Youth) program at Bangor Subase. Taba attended
and completed phase one of the course. It's the closest she may
experience to boot camp ... early hours, physical training and lots
of rules! Phase two continues through the school year, with outings
and projects to reinforce the summer's training.
OTHER AUGUST EVENTS
William had another birthday this month. Ever since he discovered
his first grey hair, he's been shocked to the reality getting older
too. I'll be nice and won't say anything about his 30+ age!!
