What a good day we had yesterday. I worked all day, which wasn’t that great, but left early to get to Elise’s All-Region choir concert in Rock Hill. It originally was supposed to be in Gaffney last week, and I didn’t think there was any way we could go, but then it was cancelled due to snow, and when they rescheduled it, the facilities at Limestone College weren’t available, so they moved it to Woodland UMC in Rock Hill. Perfect for us! I’m still learning how to use the zoom on my camera, but that’s Elise with the glasses, in the middle of the picture. The music was beautiful – I’m so glad we got to go.
Then we headed straight up town to Charlie’s church league basketball game, then to Showmars for a quick supper with Andrew, Jenny, the boys, and some of their friends, and then back to Woodland to Adam’s game. In between, though, we did get a chance to drive through town and see fountain park lit up to celebrate The Panthers. Lindee had told me about it last week, so I was so glad it worked out for us to see it for ourselves. Very, very cool.
Tuesday when Mallory and Clara were here they got a chance to make straw snowflakes like June and Mason had done earlier. They didn’t stay as late, so they didn’t finish theirs up – that’s on the agenda for this week…
Four of the six grands came over to spend the day Monday, when they were out of school for MLK Day. Around the middle of the morning, though, we took Mal over to spend the day with her buddy Lacy Emma, & the other three came back to hang out here. Among other things, we spent the afternoon making a huge batch of granola. My friend Becky makes the world’s best granola, and we used her recipe. It wasn’t quite as good as hers, but the kids had great fun making it, and were so proud. Adam kept running around the house hollering, I can’t believe we made granola! :-). Here is Clara getting all the liquid ingredients together to pour on it. Good times.
I’m just now getting pictures downloaded from this entire week, so these from last Sunday – when it snowed here for the first time this season – are a little anticlimactic after what we’ve got coming down now. You can barely see the snow even falling on June & Mason standing outside the church during the early service – they were helping me in the nursery.
