Off to Bike Week

Jeff left Wednesday to head to Myrtle Beach with his buddies to spend a few days at Bike Week – I’m just now getting pictures downloaded. I’m sure they’re having a ball.

June’s School Dance Performance

Last night we went to see the spring performance of the dance classes at Clover High School. It was so, so good. I had missed the one in the fall, so wasn’t sure what to expect, and just could not get over what a great job they all did. My favorite dance June was in was to America, from West Side Story. So cute and they all did such a good job. That’s June in the red skirt. Then in the second picture she is in the middle in the grey, in their finale. Just such a fun show.

After the game

This afternoon I took Adam and Mason to the final Winthrop University home baseball game of the season. Attending as many baseball games as we can is on our agenda for the summer – this was #2. I got this picture as we were heading out after a 5-4 Winthrop victory. Great afternoon.

At the beach

This week I spent four days at Myrtle Beach with our Forever Young older adult group at the beach – so much fun. On Wednesday we went on a boat tour down the intercoastal waterway. It was a great trip. Perfect weather, and the tour was so fun and interesting and informative. I took this picture standing on the back of the boat. The second picture I took on our way home. We are all excited because a Buck-ee’s is opening in South Carolina for the first time, and it’s right on the way to the beach. Evelyn & I were so excited about checking it out on our way home, but then found out it doesn’t open until Monday. Dang it.

Ocean Views

A couple of pictures I took of the ocean when we were at Myrtle Beach earlier this week – the first from our hotel room balcony, and the second as I was out walking at sunrise. The beauty of the place just takes my breath away.

Clover Middle School Spring Chorus Performance

Last night we were at the auditorium in town for the middle school chorus concert. Mason performed with the sixth grade chorus, and Clara was in the eighth grade chorus, as well as the Summit Singers – sort of the honors chorus. I got this picture of Clara singing with the 8th graders. I only had my phone with me, so the pictures didn’t turn out great, but Clara is on the next to back row, third from the right.

Cousins together afterwards. So proud of these kiddos.

Baseball Playoff Game

For the first time in the history of the school, Clover High’s baseball team won the regional championship this year. Tuesday night Jeff & I went to watch the first playoff game – which happened to be against Rock Hill High, where Charlie goes to school. Char asked me what team’s colors I wore to the game, and I told him I decided to wear a Winnie the Pooh T-shirt. That seemed safer :-). I got this picture during the National Anthem before the game, and it was the only one I took all night. Just too much excitement. Rock Hill won 2-1, and they play again tomorrow in the elimination game. Pretty exciting.

Visit with Bobby and Shirley

Monday Sherri & I got to Hayesville, NC, to spend some time visiting with our cousins Bobby and Shirley West. Such a fun time. We were at their house for several hours, and then headed to El Cancun for a Mexican lunch before Sherri & I headed home. Such a fun day.

The view from the restaurant windows of Lake Chatuge was lovely.
