We had a good day yesterday as we start working on getting back into our regular school year routine.  Normally I would’ve started keeping Kimbrell last week, when her teacher parents went back to school, but we were in Indiana, so yesterday was our first full day since last May.  We had a good day.  […]

First Day of School

Clover Schools started back today.  Mallory went straight from school to dance, but I met Lindee & Addie, along with June, Clara, and Mason, at Sweet Frogs in York when school was over to celebrate.  Mason didn’t want to get in this picture, but here are our 4th & 3rd graders!  Everyone seemed to have a great […]

Paul Boggs Band

Saturday afternoon when we were in Charlestown was the annual Alzheimers Fundraiser, and Mark’s band played there, too.  We spent the afternoon out there, listening to them and letting Jeff see more old friends, and hit the road for home as soon as the band finished up.  It was such a fun visit.

Friday Night in Indiana

We just got home from spending a few days in Indiana with Jeff’s folks.  We visited family, and Friday night had a really good time when we went to the American Legion in Sellersburg to see Mark play drums with the Paul Boggs Band.  It was so good to see so many old friends, some […]

At Latta Nature Preserve

Charlie and Adam spent the weekend with us – Andrew was running a Spartan Race in Asheville, and had a late starting time, so didn’t get home until very late Saturday night, and Jenny and three of her friends from work had gone for a girls’ getaway to the mountain house in Saluda – so […]

Rainbow Doughnuts

This morning I took the kids to Rainbow Doughnuts to celebrate their last day of summer break with me.  They actually have one more week, but we will be in Indiana, so I thought this was a good way to close the summer out.


What a fun day June, Mason, & I had today.  I had been promising them since the first day of summer that we would go to Columbia to EdVenture, the state children’s museum.  Since it’s virtually time for school to start back, we decided today was the day.  I had heard about Big Eddie, this […]
