Weekly Winners – May 3- May 8, 2009

May 10, 2009 at 5:07 am 10 comments

This week’s Weekly Winners come from two locales. First off, we have snippets of a Sunday trip Ryan and I took to the Norfolk Botanical Gardens. Next we have a Saturday trip to Maple Park near Currituck, North Carolina where my ten year old neighbor, Jacal, and his ten year old nephew, Jamontae, found their first geocache. Jamontae also got to try honeysuckle for the first time. Enjoy!

    It is SO AWESOME that you spend so much time with the neighborhood kids and show them more about what you know. What a great, positive presence in their lives! You’re like a motivated ‘Big Sister’ without the organization!
