Today we honor 
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Aye and I were very lucky to have a student who’s aunt worked on this project when we went to Washington DC last summer.  Our group of kids and adults (about 45) were able to put on hard hats and actually walk the memorial ground about 2 months before it was even opened.  We were NOT allowed to take photos, but our memories are strong.  The amazing man and his assistant who actually carved this memorial were there working on it when we were there.  For me, this was one of the most amazing parts of the trip. Dr.  Martin Luther King, Jr, is so much a part of our modern history that is seems almost more real to me….
 Over the past month I have been so busy with ‘life’!  First we had winter vacation and Aye’s birthday, then of course Christmas and New Years.  Near the end I was a bit sick, so I didn’t enjoy the time as much as I could have.  Then once the kids got back to school we only had a few days to catch our breath before Monster started showing signs of the Chicken Pox…..needless to say it has been about 45 days without either one (or both) kids at home and where NO ONE was sick!  I needed to get out of the house!  So, my mom-in-law and I decided to ‘go off for the day’. 
Now, let me tell you, I didn’t know anything more about this show than that it was about nuns and it was a musical comedy.  So going in I really wasn’t sure what to expect.  For me, it is just a afternoon out of the house with another adult that wasn’t sick!!
NOW, let me tell you what we received!  The lunch was amazing!!  I had the Parmesan Crusted Salmon and my mom-in-law had the Steak dinner.  OMG!  I can not tell you how good that Salmon was!  And I was able to taste her steak… WOW!!  Then there was the show!
This show was the funniest thing I have seen in forever!!  The ‘nuns’ really made fun of themselves, but I thought it was all done with great taste.  I was laughing so hard at one point that I had to take off my glasses and use my napkin for my eyes!!!  IT WAS HELERIOUS!!!
If you are anywhere near the Jacksonville area and you can take the time, I would say go have a wonderful meal and a more than a few ‘belly’ laughs!!  The show only has a few weeks to go!

As I end this I would like to remind us of one of my favorite Martin Luther, Jr. quotes –
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
