Go Heels!

I haven't looked at the news yet but I assume Franklin St. was a madhouse last night...

Whoo-hoo! Go Heels! Heard the helicopters circling for hours. Didn't go downtown, though.

dd1 sat up with me and watched the livestream. As I was tucking her in, I said "If we still lived in Carrboro, we could hear them celebrating." She said, "I'm glad we live here now."

Wow. So glad I don't live anywhere near Franklin St.! Our team (Mizzou) lost last weekend but we were certainly cheering for the Heels last night!

oh...and dd2 watched part of the first half and asked, "Why are we watching this on the computer, not the tv?" and "Why do they keep falling down?"

Then she wanted to watch Dr. Doolittle instead.

Very unimpressed with sports, that one.

My 8 year old has now mastered all the words to "Hark the Sound." I'm so proud. *sniff*

That's cute, chfriend. I can hear her singing it now! My kids just tell me to "STOP" when I start singing the fight song or anything, really!

Is your current neighborhood considered CH and not Carrboro? I would have thought it was C-boro.

It's not annexed, but the p o address is CH. Weird, huh?

County taxes, city schools...If we used 'em!

No bus (which bites).
