June Jumble: Visits!

I met my niece Sonia in NYC and we saw the whale exhibit  at the  American Museum of Natural History Museum.  Fascinating!

We toured Princeton the next day; it’s on her college list, and stopped in to see my son and his family.  0-9(more cousins!)

This week I took my niece Leah on a shoe-shopping mission to support her brother (and my nephew), Julien, who’s working in Lord &Taylor’s Women’s shoes this summer.0-3

I visited my parents in CT. I helped my mother set up her blog.  She doesn’t touch type, is a bit computer-phobic, but eager to become part of the blogging community. She might need encouragement to keep writing and I’m sure I’ll need to help with posting. (I know her password).  0-14

We strolled through The Kate, a performing arts center housed in a renovated former town hall in Old Saybrook, CT, honoring the town’s most famous resident. 0-120-130-15

    Love this, Lisa. Nothing better than to do things with and for family. I grew up visiting The museum of Natural History all the time with my dad. One of my favorites.

    You did some interesting things. I never could get my mom to even use a computer for emails. I never realized that she didn’t type before I set one up for her, and she just balked! Oh well. You mom sounds awesome! 🙂
