At the Library

Yesterday afternoon I took June and Clara to another  program at the library in town – this one on Backyard Critters.  A lady came from the Museum of York County with all sorts of things for the kids to see and feel, and they loved it.  Here they are checking out the touch box just […]

Recital Take 3

Sunday afternoon was the final performance of Sleeping Beauty – Mallory had been in seven performances of it over the course of the long weekend, but we had not seen her as a woodpecker, so we headed over again to take that in.  She did a great job.  Here she is afterwards, all smiles :-). […]

Fun Saturday

What a good day Saturday was.  We started out the morning at the Color Me Fit 5K race in Rock Hill, which the elementary school P.E. teachers were putting on to raise money for their program.  Our group was Addie, June, Adam, Little Hope, and me.  Here we are just starting out, taking our first […]

Friday Pictures

We had a good afternoon Friday.  That morning was Field Day at Larne Elementary School, where June goes, so Mason went to that with his mom and dad.  It sounded like they all had SUCH fun.  Then they stopped & got lunch, & brought it to us on the way to spend the afternoon at […]

Recital 2015 – Opening Night

A Ballerina and a Ballplayer

Clara’s Birthday Party, Part 2

Would a seven-year-old’s birthday party be complete without Pin the Tail on the Donkey?  Or, in this case, Pin the Nose on Olaf?  I think not! For our gift for Clara, I had our friend Lauren’s daughter Carly do a portrait of Elsa, and then Elsa signed it to Clara before she left the party.  […]

Clara’s Seventh Birthday Party – Part 1

Saturday we celebrated Clara at her birthday party at her house.  As always, Lindee did a great job of planning & carrying out her theme – “Frozen.”  When we first got there the guests were sitting in the kitchen coloring Frozen pages, doing word searches, things like that.  Here are the party girl’s big sister […]

Elise’s Spring Chorus Concert

Tonight we headed to Rock Hill to hear Leesy perform with her high school chorus in their spring program.  They were absolutely awesome.  They did selections from Rent and Showboat, and Elise had a solo in one of the songs from Wicked.  And then the final portion of the program was a medley of old […]
