So proud of Adam last night – he participated in his first official BMX race, and came in second! I missed both his and Charlie’s first moto, but here he is, in second place, in his second. Yay, Adam!
Yesterday when I picked Mallory and Clara up after school, we finally had time for them to make their dragon eggs. All of their cousins had liked making them so much that I wanted to make sure they got a chance, too. Once again, they were a hit!
Everyone got much better pictures than I did from our beautiful day yesterday, but here are a couple just to remember the day by. The venue where they had the wedding was absolutely gorgeous, in the NC mountains. Originally planned to be in a meadow out on the side of one of those mountains, the rain drove us inside, but it was still just beautiful. I wish this picture of this grapevine arch, with the top covered in wildflowers, had turned out. Just lovely.
Friday night we headed up to Mount Airy to check in the motel, and be at Cooper and Rachel’s rehearsal dinner that evening. Elise went as my date, since Jeff stayed home to be here when the plumber came to replace our leaking hot water heater. He rode up with Addie & the kids Saturday morning. The rehearsal dinner was held at the same venue where the wedding was, and just could not have been nicer. It was fun meeting and visiting with Cooper & Rach’s friends who were going to be in the wedding, and the emotions were already rising to the surface. Especially when Zollie showed me this compass Rachel gave him. Priceless.
Fun day yesterday, despite the fact that it rained all day long. When June & Mason got here after school we had fruit for snack, and then Mason read – no homework for June because testing is starting this week – and then made dragon eggs. We really liked how they turned out.
That evening at BIG we took the kids to visit some of the shut-ins. It was such a sweet experience, and June and Mason both just raved about doing it while I was taking them home afterwards. Here they are singing to Mrs. Ruth Wallace – June’s in the green jacket, and Mason in the orange shirt. Just such a sweet experience.
And Jeff and me. We went to sunrise service because I knew I’d have to keep the nursery for both services later that morning, so while I was doing nursery and Sunday school, he came home and changed out of his dress clothes. The kids were giving him a hard time about this t-shirt he was wearing 🙂
