Saturday we went to the Folklife festival put on by the Smithsonian. They had booth set up about the Americas, fashion, as well as a bunch of booths for Hungry. It was fun walking around and seeing all the displays. They also had food, so we got some Chicken and Waffles and fresh fruit. It was fun but really hot. The rest of the weekend was pretty relaxed.

Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, I was focused on helping Mary prepare for the Summer Institute. I had to finish ordering supplies, unpack the boxes of supplies, and reorganize them. I also worked on an evaluation that we will be giving  the teachers to help make the summer institute better. I am also in charge of finding a good way to document the week and provide the teachers a way to find that information. So we discussed ideas and different types of online resources we could use. Right now we are thinking of using a blog and pinterest. We’ll see how that turns out.

Wednesday night, I flew to Atlanta! My cousin and his wife just had a baby boy named Hans. He is SO cute! Since I am here on the east coast, I decided this was a good opportunity to come and see him and visit my cousins before I move to Oregon for the fall. My trip to Atlanta will be for four days and it should be fun.

Thursday was the fourth of July and was pretty uneventful. It has been raining in Georgia, so the fireworks were canceled. It was nice though to spend time hanging out with the family. We played Dance Central on Kinnect and Betrayal at House on the Hill. It has been a really fun trip and I am really glad I got to see my first cousin once removed. I will get home just in time for the summer institute to start, which should be a crazy adventure
