Bethany Third Grade Field Trip

What a fun day yesterday was, when I went with Lindee and Emma to meet Clara and her classmates in Columbia for their field trip.  We started the day out at the State Museum.  I had been once years ago, but really could not remember much about it.  I will definitely be going back when […]

Dan Lunow

I never got on here over the weekend to add this picture from last Friday.  Meg had invited me to go hear a speaker at Lake Point Academy, where Hope goes to school – Dan Lunow.  His story was such an amazing one.  He was born in Germany and as a young man served in […]

Thursday afternoon on the playground

On Thursday afternoons this month, when I pick Mallory and Clara up from school, we head to the church for Mallory to meet with Ms. Liz, her confirmation mentor.  The other days we have gone Clara and I have just sat in the nursery and read, or done a few errands around the church, or […]

The Yarbroughs

Last night was the Clover School District Art Show.  Mason had one of his pieces chosen to represent Larne Elementary, so Jeff & I headed over to meet him and his family at the auditorium, to check it out.  It’s always fun – we see lots of people from town and get to do some […]


Yesterday evening I took June and Clara to the Seussabration at the library in town – Mason has soccer practice.  It was so cute.  One of their favorite activities was the Green Egg Relay.  The eggs were actually raw, which was hilarious when they dropped them, for sure.  Here is Clara getting ready to captain […]

Andy’s Surprise 60th

My picture taking skills reached a new low last night, but what an amazing evening we had, when we headed up to Winston Salem for a surprise birthday party for Andy.  Liz & Nate hosted, but it was held at their dear friends Carol and David Taylor’s house.  They got Andy there under the guise […]

Tire Swing

We have kept Kimbrell every day this week while Denise has been recovering from some surgery.  She’s been sick and the weather has been brutally cold, but today Jeff was off work, she was feeling better, and the weather was gorgeous enough for him to get her outside and introduce her to the tire swing […]

Clara’s Chorus Program

Last night was the Bethany Elementary School spring choral performance.  As a third grader, this is Clara’s first year to participate, and it was SO cute.  They did songs from “Shrek.”  The kids all dressed up either like characters in Shrek, or their favorite fairy tale characters, like the crowd scenes in the movie.  SO […]

Snowy Sunday

This weather has been really crazy lately.  After several 80 degree days in February, and most every day very springlike, we got snow Sunday, and have brutally cold temps all this week.  It was beautiful Sunday morning, though, and I was so glad I had thought I would maybe be out of town, so got […]
