June’s 8th birthday party

Such a fun time today at out Bug-a-boo’s party.  It was at my friend Charlotte’s pool.  The weatherman called for a 50% chance of rain, but they did get in well over an hour of swimming before the lightning started, so we were thankful for that.  By the time we did cupcakes and June opened […]

Salkehatchie Snacks

This past week has been the Salkehatchie Camp at our church, when kids from around the state come in and sleep at the church, and work on home repairs for a family in the area who needs them.  Evelyn is the camp director – she has been a huge proponent of the program since she […]

Romare Bearden Park

Thursday night Lindee and the girls went with me to the Charlotte Knights game – a client from work gave us tickets.  The stadium is as awesome as I remembered it – right downtown in Charlotte, with a killer view of the skyline.  Afterwards, as is becoming our tradition, we headed across the street to […]

Wednesday Outings

What a good day I had yesterday!  June and Mason got here at their regular time, and we got everything ready & headed over to pick up my friend Sherry and her grandson Will, and went to Lineberger Park in Gastonia to check out the Splash Pad.  Kelli Gilreath had told me about it when […]

Grayson Highlands – Sunday

Saturday at Grayson Highlands

Saturday morning of our camping trip dawned bright and clear – but the same could not have been said for the night before.  The kids’ first camping experience was in the middle of a thunderstorm, complete with lightning and torrential rains – talk about baptism by fire!  They all did great, though, and we woke up […]

Friday Night Camping

Friday we left Clover about noon to head up to Grayson Highlands State Park in Virginia, where Olivia is working this summer as an interpretive ranger. Zollie & Renee had set up this weekend for the kids & I to come camping with them. What a wonderful time we had! Only Adam had ever been […]

Wednesday Pix

Today Charlie, Adam, June, and Mason were here at the house, so we decided to head over to the Museum of York County for Wonderful Wednesdays.  Today the program was No Bones About It, about insects.  Our kids are big bug lovers, so I thought it would be fun for them.  It was good, but […]
