At the Farmer Jason Show

Yesterday morning June, Mason, Adam, & I headed into town to the weekly show at the library.  This week it was Farmer Jason, who was really good – he had just come from a stint as the Artist-in-Residence at Sequoia National Park, which I thought was pretty good for our little town.  He had the […]

Main Street Children’s Museum

Yesterday it was June’s turn to decide what we would do for the day, and she chose taking Kimbrell to the museum in Rock Hill for very small children – ages 2-6.  I had not been since I took Adam when he was pretty much on the younger end of that age range, and thought […]

Revolutionary War Dragoons at Brattonsville

Today the kids and I headed to Brattonsville, to take in their Time Travel Tuesday program.  Today we learned about the dragoons that fought at the Battle of Hucks Defeat, which was fought near there.  It was SO interesting.  As usual, the costumed interpreters were so knowledgeable, and so engaged with the kids.  This man […]

At the Pool

Fun day yesterday, when we had our second Park Hopper Day with the church kids.  We headed to Wesley Acres Pool, in Gastonia, which I had never heard of, but was the neighborhood pool where Jon, our children’s director, grew up.  It was SO nice.  The kids must’ve gone off the diving board a thousand […]

Barefoot Puppets

Yesterday we went to the library to see a puppet show of The Little Red Hen, as part of their summer series.  It was cute as could be.  Here are Clara and June talking to one of the puppeteers after the show.

Wednesday Pix

Good day Wednesday, when four of the six grands were here.  It was kind of an overcast morning, but they did get some outside play in.  When it started sprinkling everyone came inside, and we worked on a little bit of finger crocheting.  June had done it before, so she was a real pro. After […]

On the playground

Tuesday when I picked the kids up, we dropped Mason off at Reading Camp, and then girls & I stopped to vote on our way home.  We vote at the school at the end of our road, and the playground just looked too inviting to pass up.

Mountain Scenery

Oh my goodness – the weather Saturday when we were in the mountains was absolutely gorgeous – there is just nothing like it.  First thing Saturday morning we headed to Roan Mountain, to check out the rhododendron.  They were really about a week past their prime, and Kirkie said that she didn’t think it had […]
