Today Meg & I met for breakfast, & then went out and spent the morning walking around the trail at Kings Mountain National Battlefield. I hadn’t been out there literally in years, and it was so interesting refreshing my memory about the details of the battle by reading all of the plaques. We thought this one was especially interesting, where the Colonels and other officers told them not to wait for orders, to just go ahead and start fighting as they saw fit. Not exactly the way we feel like the armed services are taught today.
Then this evening was Charlie’s first track meet ever for Rock Hill High School – a scrimmage against Fort Mill. His first event was the 4 x 800 relay – he ran the first leg. So proud of him.
Last night was Clara’s first official soccer match for Clover Middle School. They had a scrimmage last week, but this one counted :-). It was a W, 6-0. Proud of these girls. Here is Clara – in white, with the mask – in action.
Saturday Andy was with Gran for the weekend, so we got her to Doctor’s Care in Rock Hill for her first Covid vaccine. It really was a pretty painless procedure. Easy for me to say, I know, but other than her arm being a little sore, she hasn’t had any bad effect at all. Praying that will be the case with the second one, too.
Every Tuesday since the pandemic began, or around then, Historic Brattonsville has hosted a Zoom Time Travel Tuesday, about all kinds of interesting historic topics pertaining to the local area. This week it was about the beginning of the temperance movement in York County. The first temperance societies were started in the country in 1826, and by the 1850’s were going great guns in this area. This lady is so knowledgeable, and such fun to listen to. I hope I remember to watch them more regularly.
With all the rain we’ve had this month, Jeff & I have had plenty of time to be working puzzles. We thought this one was going to be really hard, but as it turned out, it was not at all. 500 pieces. Fourth of July.
