So, now that summer is over let me fill you in on what all I did.
I was not here at Judson for short term, but that doesn't mean I didn't get to see my JC sisters.
Not a month into the summer, I was on the road with Andrea on the way to Sarah's Wedding in Monroeville, Ala. Sarah was a fellow Equestrian Team member and a dear friend. It was a beautiful occasion and we were all happy for her. Like everything else at Judson, a Judson Girls wedding involves traditions. During the wedding reception all of the bride's Judson sisters who are in attendance, circle around her and the groom and sing to them. Sarah's wedding was my first Judson wedding and although I had heard about them, I didn't realize how special of a tradition it is until I was a part of it.
After the wedding, we had to head to Judson, because the Choir was singing at a church in Tuscaloosa the next day and it was easier and a shorter drive to go crash with a friend on campus for the night then to go home.We learned a couple of things on that interesting trip to Judson. One, we learned that you can not always trust Map Quest directions because sometimes they can take you in the complete opposite direction of where you need to go and, two, that it is a good thing gas stations have maps, because no one knows where you are going when you ask for directions to Marion!
I was back at judson again only a few weeks later for the Marion Rodeo, again with Andrea. We were asked by the Marion Rodeo Committee to perform the opening flag presentation Friday and Saturday night. Andrea and I had choreographed the routine for our riding final spring semester.
My final visit to Judson over the summer was for graduation and again I traveled with Andrea. This time, however, we met up with Mrs. Jennifer Hoggle Friday night at the rodeo in Alex City where Andrea lives. We rode to Marion for graduation with her and then back to the Alex City Rodeo Saturday afternoon.
After that my summer was pretty uneventful.
