May 1st is looming…

For us counselors, May 1st signifies something quite wonderful… SUMMER! Our college goes to summer hours after graduation (mid-May), but until then the excitement is in the air. Another thing that May 1st signifies, that has nothing to do with admissions is my favorite thing ever. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is open for business soon! Let me break from the admissions talk (since this time of year that’s what I think of 75% of the time) and just dwell on the fact that I love May at the Speedway. Last year, I didn’t get to do too much because I was pregnant. But this year, my parents are keeping the baby of the whole weekend so hubby and I can attend the “Greatest Spectacle in Racing.” Too bad that slogan is already taken. Can you see it? Franklin College: The Greatest Spectacle in Education. Actually that’s terrible to call your instituion a spectacle. Let’s stick to Leadership, Excellence, and Service.

Danica has her first win under her belt (even though she had a DNF this week). The series is unified. A CART transplant has already won a race. It’s going to be a GREAT year. Anyone else love Indy Racing out there?

    …um…I actually don’t know anything about it.

    Well – I know what SportsCenter tells me. So – pretty much just the surface stuff. Although I grew up in Indy – the race just never really meant that much.

    We used to play it on the radio while we played outside – and that’s the end of that story.
