June’s first quiz team match

Yesterday afternoon we headed into town to watch June compete in her first quiz team match – she’d missed the one last week due to basketball practice.  Mallory missed this one since she’d been sick all week.  I got this picture of June while she was on stage, although you aren’t allowed to take pictures […]

Saturday’s basketball

We started out our day at Adam’s basketball game, at New Kirk Baptist Church in Rock Hill.  I got virtually no action pictures of him on the court, but we were so excited that Jenny’s folks, Cliff and Donna, came up for the day.  We just don’t get to see them very often at all, […]

Latest puzzle

Our latest jigsaw puzzle is one we got at a friend’s vintage shop probably a year ago, and am just now putting together.  It was from 1967, and was missing two pieces.  Jeff worked on it, though, and made us the missing pieces.  I think he did a great job!

June’s basketball game

Last night we were back at Blue Eagle Academy in town, to watch June play again.  They didn’t win, but June really played such a good game.  I thought she was way more intense than she was the last time we saw her, so we were proud.  Here are a couple of action shots.  I […]

First Quiz Team Match of the Season

Adam’s basketball game

As soon as Mason’s game was over, Jeff & I hit the road for Tirzah, to see as much of Adam’s game as we could.  They were about half way through the third quarter by the time we got there, so I didn’t get a ton of action shots, but did get this one during […]

Mason’s basketball game

Mase played yesterday at noon, so Jeff & I headed into town for the game.  Jeff had been to his game before Christmas, but this was the first time I’d been able to see him play.  I was so proud!  Here is a shot I got of him in action.  He’s green #11. We left […]

Native American Studies Center

Our final stop yesterday on our Christmas Break Adventure was at the Native American Studies Center, in Lancaster.  It’s part of the USC system, and is a great museum dedicated to all of the Native American tribes in the state.  There are some permanent exhibits, but this outfit was part of one of the rotating […]
