The Cookout

The students wanted to see an American home, so we hosted a cookout at our house this evening. Ji Won and Sophia drove the kids out to Gaithersburg in two 11-passenger vans; Shirley and her husband Clyde brought the Evanoffs; Marie Hallion joined us on the eve of her trip to New England; and our friends Helen and Gary Clark and their daughter Colleen, and Nedret Oztan, visiting from Turkey, came also. We served raw veggies, chips and salsa, hamburgers, potato salad, cole slaw, fruit salad and cookies--relatively typical cookout fare. The weather was pretty good--a little bit cooler than the past few days, and a little drier, and it didn't rain, although thunderstorms were forecast. The kids toured the house, played cards and other games, played with Shirley and Clyde's little grandson DJ, 2, ate, and sang. Nine o'clock came all too soon, and they left for the Redrock Cafe for karaoke. I hope they won't be too tired to enjoy Annapolis tomorrow!
