The Thoughtfulness of Friends

I received a package in the mail from my friend Ellen today that contained a pair of Travel Bug tags for geocaching. Travel Bugs are basically ID numbers that can be attached to any little toy or item that can then be placed in a geocache and set on its way to start a journey. The movement of the Travel Bug can be tracked on the geocaching website, and will be fun for my girls. Travel Bugs can be turned loose with no particular goal, or they can be given a goal such as "see the Grand Canyon." Fun stuff... We will need to figure out what to do with theirs.

Thanks, Ellen, for your thoughtfulness. I think that maybe this falls into the category of "your first hit of crack is free...", but the girls love the idea.

Also in the little package, to fill up space, was a copy of a CD recording of the 2010 North Carolina all-state honors band performances. Ellen's daughter is in the 9/10 grade high school section, and I am absolutely blown away by the quality of the music these kids can create. Absolutely, completely, totally blown away... These are the kind of things that make parents so proud that the children squirm. Congratulations, this CD is terrific!
