WE Love our Moms

What a wonderful way to end our teaching week with our young mothers.  We never leave that class that we are not edified.  One young mother invited us to dinner on Sunday.  We couldn't make it this Sunday but in a couple of weeks we will meet her husband and enjoy being with them.

There are some unique things about Washington DC.  The other day while I was exercising I was watching local news and they were have the morning traffic report.  Following that was the new updated report on the pot-holes to avoid.   "TOWSON, MD (February 17, 2016) – As snow and ice begin to thaw and crumbling roadways emerge, a new study from AAA reveals that pothole damage has cost U.S. drivers $15 billion in vehicle repairs over the last five years, or approximately $3 billion annually."   They are so right.  There are pot holes every where.  There are some you just can not possibly avoid. 




Last night as we were walking home from the Metro we see what Elder Anthony thought was a squirrel running across the side walk in front of us.  There are squirrels every where in DC.  This one had one problem.  His tail wasn't a squirrel tail.  It was a big old rat.  They give me the creeps,  

Our student assistant called us in the middle of class.  He was locked out of his room.  That is one of his jobs to let people back in their rooms when they are locked out.  We had to tell him we couldn't come until after class at 9:30 p.m..  When we got there we had three people waiting to get back into their rooms.
