Art happened at the Capitol

As I said yesterday, Sarah created art work at her school that has been honored and displayed at the Ohio State Capitol.

Yesterday there was a ceremony to honor the art students in the "map room" of the Capitol building. You can read more about the experience here.

We were downtown for a while on Saturday--always a dicey prospect for suburbanites such as ourselves. We tried out best to look cool and keep our mouths closed as we rubbed elbows with the hip urbanites. Naturally, we failed utterly to find a suitable place to eat lunch after the experience (but . . . I am not going to go into that here, since it just will remind me of bad feelings. I only note it obliquely as a memory jog and a nod towards a complete understanding of history. Moving on.)

I also took some very sketchy videos of the event--and I'll include links to part 1 and part 2 here, thought there is nothing very good to recommend them, I fear. (I've REALLY got to buckle down sometime and learn how to edit video properly. Right now I simply throw up there whatever I happen to record. And that doesn't really work.)

The rest of the weekend was spent outside enjoying abundant sun and cooling breezes. I spent lots of money on mulch and spread them all around the front yard beds. Lynda dug up and transplanted hostas that were in desperate need of more shade from the front to the back. And today the kids conned us into blowing up the inflatable pool so they could splash around a bit.

My back hurts.

And now I've got "work" to do.

How cool is that! An event to remember, and the first of many, I expect.
