Irish Italian Festival Weekend

24

The Irish Italian Festival started with a 5K on Friday evening. My younger brother and father both entered the race. Jaeyoun and I joined my grandmother, mother, and nephews at the finish line.

They actually finished the race!

The parade was Saturday morning and was pretty special this year since my mother was the queen of the festival and got to ride with the king on a main float!

Caerus Mardi Gras Parade | Hattiesburg, MS

13

Jaeyoun and I missed the Mardi Gras parade in Hattiesburg last year, but this year we decided that we were going to walk down and enjoy the festivities. We met up with a couple of friends and attempted to catch as many beads and throws as possible. I was really happy to see that the parade drew such a nice crowd and that the rainy weather cleared for a bit. We have already decided that next year we want to ride in it; now we just have to figure out whose float we can join. We are still considering heading down to New Orleans for a larger parade this year, but with Jaeyoun’s school schedule, that is still up in the air. As usual, we get Fat Tuesday off, but this is right in the middle of achievement tests for my students, and it just isn’t a great time to leave Hattiesburg.

First Tennis Tournament| Things to Remember

23

I will post about my experience at the tournament that I played in this weekend when I have had to time to replay the damn thing in my head.

1. Mental Game
2. Backhand Return of Serve
3. Second Serve
4. Poaching
5. Fitness
6. Diagonals
7. Stretching

Needless to say, we got blasted, but it really was a great learning experience.
