MAKE IT A GREAT DAY: Monday, August 1st!

It’s a pleasant but a bit muggy 68 degrees and we’re only to climb another 12 degrees for the high of the day. It’s a bit overcast and expected to remain so most of the day.

Today is the 179th birthday of Robert Todd Lincoln, the eldest son of Abraham and Mary Lincoln. Young Bob Lincoln went on to do some pretty amazing things throughout his life while continuing to protect the legacy of his father. Some historians have mentioned Robert’s eccentricities but I do not see them as anything glaring unless one is attempting to compare father to son. Can you imagine what it must have been like to be the eldest child of the great Abraham Lincoln? I am sure it was both a blessing and a curse.

My hometown of Elwood, Indiana is still reeling from the fatal shooting of one of its young police officers during a traffic stop. The community has unified to provide for the officer’s family and send tons of love to the young man’s fellow officers. This will, I am certain, be a very long week.

I will begin my day in the park and return home to teach. Show choir camp and a college visit will rob me of two seniors but the remaining thirteen students will be in lessons.

There is really nothing more to report. With that, let’s all try to make it a great day!
