I wish the pictures I took came out better, but here is a group photo of all the speakers and several people officially recognized during the program.
Kaleya and her classmates put on a play based on the life of Malcolm X. Kaleya had two roles – one as “Shorty” and one as Narrator at the end of the play. We are so proud of her and all her school mates. 🙂
Yesterday, Kaleya and Q and I took a trip over to Fannie Mae Dees Park (aka Dragon Park b/c there is a big dragon sculpture on the playground to play on) to celebrate the 7th birthday of a family friend. We are a single car family and since Kalonji had to report for reserve duty this weekend, we took the bus. I had not realized it, but this was Kaleya’s first time riding the bus – she was so excited about it! We had a fun day!
I also captured a video of Q rolling down a hill – loved hearing his giggle as he came down. 🙂
Bone Thugs-N-Harmony is one of my favorite rap groups. When Thugggish Ruggish Bone came out, I bought the EP and listened to that song over and over and over again in my college dorm room for 3 hours straight. Good times 🙂 Along the way in my fandom, I passed the love onto my sister and she too is an avid Bone fan. Last night, she was able to go see two of the members, Krayzie & Wish, perform in downtown Nashville at 12th & Porter. Kelli was SO excited and had a great time!
To hear Kelli tell it, it was great music and great fun! I sent a Tweet to Krayzie to let him know she’d enjoyed it, and then Krazyie tweeted me back! How cool is that???
@iamKrayzieBone my sister attended and enjoyed your show 2nite. I'm living vicariously thru her 🙂 thx for coming thru #nashvegas!
3pm – Okay – so, I am a bit freaked out right now. We have tornado activity (or very possible tornado activity) headed towards Nashville right now. Thought I would live blog it as I am tracking all that is going on.
cells on the other side of Memphis are what is coming our way; activity southwest of us in Lincoln County has hook echoes and at least one report of a funnel touchdown
The Weather Channel has reporters in town now prepping for the coverage. Not cool. Check out their spot – they can see downtown Nashville.
Today the kids are off trunk-or-treating with a family friend. I am loving their outfits this year. Kaleya continues her Monster High obsession and is dressed up like the character Frankie Stein. Jihad is a Night Stalker and a very scary one at that! Their friend is Mario of Super Mario Brothers.
