“Did you know Condoleezza Rice’s mother taught Willie Mays?”
“I think you mean Billie Mays.”

“It’s so good that she’s admitting that her mother, as a public school teacher, was showing favoritism to the athletes.”
“Well, I feel like that was the least of their concerns during the Civil Rights Movement…

Summer 2010 pt 1.

Posted by cjaxon on August 2, 2010

This one’s mostly for the people back home, who perhaps haven’t known where I’ve been all summer, and almost definitely don’t know what I’ve been doing. Let me say, it’s been a long summer, but not much of a break. Mostly just “not-school.” Except that I was even taking classes, so it was school too. Here’s what’s gone down. (And it’s pretty long, so I’ll split it into two posts.)

For starters, SARAH AND SPENCER GRADUATED!!! I made a quick trip down to see them walk. Well family, this is it. The Von Vancils have all grown up, and our collective childhoods are over. It’s bittersweet, and I hope all the best for the future. As tight as we’ve been so far, I don’t see us having a problem keeping in touch.

Adult Von Vancils!!
