A apartment building under construction about a mile from our house went up in flames this morning. It was quite a scene and smack dab between home and Dylan's rugby game at West Potomac high school. Major road closures made for a difficult trip to see the game. It was windy and the fire spread to some other stores in a strip mall and some occupied townhomes next door. No one was injured.
A new Aldi grocery store was going to open in the ground floor of that building, not anymore.
Dylan played his first rugby match, post knee surgery on Saturday. It was a scrimmage but he could not wear the knee brace because it was full tackle. He played well with a try, a couple a tackles and he was tackled a few times. The knee was still in one piece for an Eagle Impact Rugby Clinic at Mount St. Mary's today. He's a trooper.
I dropped Dylan off at a Rugby clinic at Mount St. Mary's University in Emmittsville Maryland then drove up into the Catoctin mountains and hiked 6 miles. It was really nice to get outside for an extended period and bask in the silence of the woods. The weather was perfect at 45 degrees and sunny.
