We have several victories to celebrate!
1. My oldest received his learner's permit last weekend ... I shared our adventure with the Maryland Vehicle Administration (MVA) on my travel blog, ALOHA ON MY MIND, at this link.
2. My oldest and I attended the Baltimore Area Council's (BAC) annual reception to recognize the 2013 Class of Eagle Scouts. I am grateful to the BAC for included Andrew even though he completed his Eagle Project in Hawaii. His project was the Hickam Heritage Trail at link, link, link, and link, which started and ended at the Hickam Library.
3. RWA published its nominees for its annual RITA awards at this link. Congrats to all the nominees!
Two nominated books appear on my best of 2013 at this link.
