March 26-28

More photos from my journey around the sun, although there has been more rain than sun in DC lately!

March 28, 2009: It was so hard to pick my picture from today! I took some amazing shots at the National Building Museum, since I couldn't post them all here is the link to my facebook album: 

March 27, 2009: Fun on the playground. These two cuties spent a good 20 minutes giving each other rides on the bike!

March 26, 2009: TDR lunch discussion on....tampon insertion.  Mindy, the resident expert, explained the fine art of this practice. Thank you for informing us on the subject Mindy!

March 23-25

March 25, 2009: Loved this license plate! I was having a so so day and it made me wish I could have some Reiki done on me. 

March 24, 2009: I walked by this coffee mug (a TDR one) on the wall by my class building and had to walk back and snap a picture. Nothing like a cup of coffee that is all natural (-;

March 23, 2009: A successful TDR shopping trip. I got once a week or so and a friend swipes me in and I come back with all the fruit I like for healthy snacking!

March 20-22

Almost 3 months in, wow!

March 22, 2009: I can easily not go outside on Sundays, but I make an effort to get my vitamin D. Today it was more spring like so I spent 15 minutes sitting outside and had fun playing with my shadow, I find it to be quite photogenic. 

March 21, 2009: It's the beginning of Little League season. Dan was ready to go to practice way before practice began!

March 20, 2009: Considering Robyn spent a few weeks living on the couch it is no surprise how quickly she makes her self at home in our apartment (-:

March 16-19

Here are the latest snapshots of my journey around the sun, although there have been more gray skies then sunny skies here in DC this week!

March 19, 2009:"They will soar on wings like Eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint" Isaiah 40:31.  AU did a stellar job against Nova, but sadly lost but tried so hard. Regardless we showed Villanova that AU is tough and GOOD!

March 18, 2009: Signs of spring. I love how colorful the campus is in spring, major advantage to going to school on a National Arboretum. I found a lovely bunch of baby daffodils and there are tulip leaves beginning to grow everywhere too.

March 17, 2009: Another damp day but our campus had these banners all over the place in the pre-NCAA March Madness games. The icing on the cake, or shall I say shot, was the AU shuttle's logo in the frame, GO AU!

March 16, 2009: A gray and icky day back in DC. While it was a good start to the final stretch of the semester the weather made me long to be back in sunny and warm Las Vegas. I do think the quad looks nice rain or shine though...

March 8-15

Beware picture overload below! Back from Las Vegas, and I had to sort through all of my pictures, all 400 of them and choose one from each day, very hard!!

March 15, 2009: Seriously, this is the closest I came to slots while in Vegas, and this was the airport! Being an Atlantic City girl, the slots were not the main attraction, the Hafters were!! Thanks for a wonderful trip!!

March 14, 2009: What a view!! Need I say more? It was sad to leave that view...

March 13, 2009: Judah was the birthday Shabbas Abba and all the older Hafter kids joined in the party! Happy 5th Judah!

March 12, 2009: Ah, to be young again, Miss Sofia sacked out in her swing.

March 11, 2009: A Tamar Palm! How cool is that?

March 10, 2009: Full moon on Purim! Hope your Purim was fabulous and fun!

March 9, 2009: Viva Las Vegas, I had to be a tourist and go to the sign! A nice fellow tourist took a picture of Jackie and me.

March 8, 2009: Hamantashen baking! The kiddos put some serious muscle into it and made some fantastic tashen!

March 4-7

The next few days will come after I get back to DC or a little before that, I am having too much fun in Vegas to post!!

March 7, 2009: What a sunrise, a view from the room I am staying in, over a gorgeous lake, wow!

March 6, 2009: WOOHOO! Viva Las Vegas! So excited to land and spend time with the Hafters!

March 5, 2009: I was soooo ready to go to Vegas the next day feeling ecstatic may have been an understatement!!

March 4, 2009: Happy early Purim! I made some mishloach manot for my friends at school, but it was a week early since Purim falls in Spring Break. They included, chocolate chip scones, trail mix, hershey's snack pack, peanut butter cups, a party blower, and a cute card! I love Purim!

February 28 - March 3

Onto the 3rd month! 

March 3, 2009: I guess my immune system is like the weather, it still thinks it's winter. I earned myself some antibiotics for a sinus/ear infection. Glad to get help kicking it before spring break!

March 2, 2009: Note the date at left! 6 inches in DC in March! Unheard of!! AU delayed until 11 which meant I finally got a snow delay in my 3 years here. I had never seen so much snow in DC, I of course have seen way more snow than this in my lifetime!

March 1, 2009: Chipotle! My first time and it was free. It was enjoyable, we braved the snow storm to go, but once again it was free therefore worth it. I got a veggie bowl, it was yummy.

February 28, 2009: Two months down! These are 4 of my Hebrew students. We finished a chapter on the Aleinu and they created posters about how to unite the world and the others made a world that is broken. I was very proud of their work!
