Today we took Mallory to Civil War Camp at the Latta Plantation, and then June, Mason, Clara, & I stayed and spent the day at the park, until time to pick her up. I had never been to the nature preserve before, and it was so nice. There was a great little children’s area, and […]
Yesterday at church I took this quick picture of June. It was her last day to be an eight-year-old! Happy birthday to our Bug-a-boo 🙂
Last night we had supper here at the house, and celebrated Andrew’s birthday a little late, and had June’s family gathering. It was fun being together. Here are the celebrants just as the party was breaking up.

Despite torrential rain and gale force winds, it ended up being an absolutely wonderful weekend. We made a quick stop at an overview on the Blue Ridge Parkway for […]
