Melanie is taking the Virginia Bar

Well today Melanie is taking the VA Bar exam. We are all praying and thinking about her. This is a 2 day test on all subjects taken in Law School the last 3 years. I do not envy her! That is though no matter what. We can only wish her good luck and hope for the best. We all know she will do her best and we will still love her no matter what the results…….

Melanie’s Graduation from Law School

Well, on May 16th, 2010, Melanie graduated from the William and Mary School of Law in Williamsburg, VA. Needless to say this is a BIG accomplishment for her and it could not make us any prouder. Melanie has accomplished every goal she has set for herself academically. This is what we hope to be her first step into life, career, and service to the community. Her next steps are to pass the Virginia BAR and find a job. Anyone with contacts in the legal profession, please contact her.

We drove up to VA to meet with Mely and Michael. We had a couple of days before the graduation for sight seeing and spending time together. Stephie joined us on Saturday night for the Law School Party at W&M’s Lake Matoaka. The graduation was on Sunday at 3PM and the weather could not have been better. We listened to Retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor give the commencement speech. It was a great speech! She seemed very nice and knowledgeable. She gave excellent advise to the new graduates. After graduation we all attended a reception at the Law School and then celebrated Melanie’s accomplishments at “Plaza Azteca”. This is an excellent Mexican restaurant in Williamsburg. If you are in the area do give it a try.

Monday’s weather was miserable, so we decided to stay overnight and didn’t drive back to Orlando until the next day. So we spent the day with Melanie and then in the evening we all spent time with Katia and Tony Busquet, ou dear friends that live in Yorktown.

We all had a great time!

Boston RedSox

I got an opportunity to get tickets for a RedSox/Yankees game at Fenway Park. I was able to get tickets for the April 7th game. Lackey v. Petite. This is one of those “bucket lists” items that I could not let go by, so we got airline tickets and hotel room for a mid-week trip to Boston. Frances and I went and had a great time. We arrived on April 6th and our friend Doreen picked us up at the airport. We spent some time with her before heading for dinner to Legal Seafoods. After dinner we went to the bar at the Marriott hotel at the Prudential Center, where they have a giant screen to watch that nights game as well as many HD screens over the bar (see pics below).

On the day of the game, we met with Steven and Elaine Mooreman for lunch at the North End. Enjoyed some great Italian food and the company was great. Then as members of RedSox Nations, we were able to get into Fenway at 4PM to watch batting practice from the Monster seats. What a great view! From the monster seat we moved over to the center field seating area and watched some of the players catch fly balls from there. We then grab some grub for dinner at the park and enjoyed the game, which we lost in extra innings, but I did not mind so much, since it was only the 3rd game of the season. Did I mentioned that it was 85 degrees that day! in Boston! Weird…..
