NoJoMo #23

I'm in Greensboro!!  I made a last minute decision on Thursday night to get a cheap last-minute deal on a flight down here for Friday, and I came down.  It's soooo good to be here.

Tonight at the Rugby House, there was a huge Thanksgiving Potluck Dinner.  I have photos, but I haven't loaded them onto my computer yet.  There were over 40 people there, lots of friends and friends of friends.  Jay, Em's brother, is also here visiting, so we all went together!  It was so incredibly great to hang out with my rugby girls again.  
This photo was taken in December of my freshman year at the rugby banquet.  It's me, Suzi, Gaby (our exchange student from Mexico!) and Kim.  Although none of these girls play anymore, they are part of the reason that I fell in love with rugby and enjoyed being on the team so much.  I liked playing, but all of my teammates really made me feel like I had found my "spot" down here at UNCG.  Me and one other player are now the oldest members of the team, which blows my mind.  I can't believe that I am now at the age that Suzi was in this picture.  She was our captain, and now I'm a captain.  So, I kind of feel like this has all come full circle.

Tomorrow we have plans to go over to the Natural Science Center, where they have a great zoo.  If you remember back a few months ago when I was here, I took V. there (the kid who I babysit for).  Em, Jay, and I are going to meet Kim and Jacob, the little boy in my last post.  It should be a fun time, and I'll take my real camera this time!

That is exactly how I felt with the crew team my senior year. Especially when a few of the girls who were seniors came to a few races!

Glad you are having a fun weekend!
