More Spring Happenings

I've gotten a little behind here, but in the past few weeks we've done Relay for Life, and we've been having an absolutely gorgeous Spring here in VT.  Here are a few pictures from Relay, where they had a bouncy house, and my kids (both my biological children, and my team!) were all enjoying that!!  Almost everyone from the team came down to take part in Relay, and it was a success yet again for Middlebury College Relay!  I camped out with my girls, and next year, I think we might get another "team tent" to spend the night--we'll see.  It's a great time, and is a powerful and emotional event. 

 There's a picture of Piper on her new bike, taking advantage of the great weather to get out and RIDE.  And, there's a picture of  our Magnolia Tree at home in full bloom.  Now, the lilacs are blooming beautifully, so I'll add a picture of that here very soon! 

Now, classes are over, and finals are about to begin--crunch time sets in!!

Busy Spring on Campus for MCVB'ers

While our juniors are busy studying and having fun abroad, those of us here on campus have been busy also.  I've been doing Leadership Training with Piper, Olivia, and Lizzy.  Lizzy and Olivia have been busy with Crew, and are having a very successful season again this year.  Many individuals have been doing community service through community friends, or helping with Special Olympics.  And, Spring is actually arriving, and they sent me this photo from the top of Snake Mountain recently on a gorgeous afternoon!

Several players from the team have worked with Special Olympics this year, and pictured here are Lizzy and Kathryn with a couple of their new friends!

 I was excited to get out to Lake Dunmore for the Home Crew race versus University of Vermont, which MIDD won easily!  Yeah MIDD!  I also got to meet Olivia's brother, and got to catch up with Olivia and Lizzy's dads, which was great.   The race was a couple weeks ago now, and literally, it was sunny one minute, and snowing the next.  The sun had some warmth, so when it was out, it was quite nice, but I left the lake with sun glasses on, and just a fleece, and by the time I got out to Route 7, it was raining hard, and when I stopped at Sama's Cafe in town, it was actually snowing!  Crazy!
