Festival of Tables

This weekend is our annual Festival of Tables at church. I am not nearly talented enough to decorate a table, but spend the morning at church making all the jello for the luncheon itself. Lots of people were there setting up their tables, and they were just amazing. The fireman one was one of my […]

Battle of the Books

Today was the Clover School District Battle of the Books competition, between all the elementary schools in town. Each school sent three teams – Mal’s team named themselves the Bookaneers :-). They ended up in fourth place – just one place out of the medal categories – but out of 18 teams, we thought that […]

Mallory and Kimbrell

Tuesday Clara was home sick from school Tuesday, so only Mallory was here to hang out with Kimbrell Anne. Both of them enjoyed that. Kimbrell does love a good book, and Mal loves reading, so that worked out perfectly.

Charlie’s game

Monday night I didn’t have small group, so was able to go with Jeff to Charlie’s final baseball game of the regular season. We were sitting right at first base, so I got this picture of him when he was getting ready to head towards second. It ended up being a pretty bad night – […]

Our busy Saturday

Thursday evening

We had big plans Thursday afternoon. Mal was getting ready for her recital, so I took Clara, June, and Mason to the Lake Wylie Library, where someone from Edventure, the children’s museum in Columbia, was supposed to be coming to do a STEM program. Alas, when we got there – along with 30 other 6,7, […]

Maytona 5K

This morning was the first annual Maytona 5K, a race to raise money for the Bethany Elementary PTO. Sherri was in town, so she and I went to help out, along with Lindee and Mallory, although Mal actually ran. Here she is running, as she was coming back to the pivot point where Sher & […]
