It’s been quite some time since we updated this site, but we’re still here! Today we took a visit to the Kentucky Horse Park just north of Lexington. It was pretty great getting to see all of the retired champion race horses and the Sumerian war chariot in the International Museum of the Horse.
Today is Nora’s first day of second grade. If possible we were even more nervous and excited than we were on the first day of school last year!
We got our new Kentucky license plates today! First, though, we had to kill some time in a parking structure waiting for a nice man to come and glance at our odometer to verify we hadn’t fibbed about it. This is a significantly more strenuous test than we had to pass to become licensed drivers in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
I propose a new state motto: Kentucky, where getting a driver’s license is trivial, and it shows!
Nora is currently away for 4 days and 3 nights of sleep-away camp at an undisclosed location in the American West. We went over and toured the place on Saturday and she was very, very excited to go back. There will be camp fires, songs, an art barn, glitter, hiking, and ridiculously late bedtimes. (We can’t wait until she comes home)
