Getting their Bibles

This morning Jeff & I attended worship service at Woodland UMC, to be there when both Charlie and Adam got new Bibles.  This is Charlie and the other two sixth grade boys heading back to their seats after they received theirs. Afterwards with their mom and dad…

Birthday Cake Baking

Yesterday Mallory spent the day with us while Lindee took Clara to go back-to-school shopping.  She helped me bake Leesy’s birthday cake – here she is working on the icing – that we took in the afternoon over to Gran’s house for a little surprise gathering for our sweet Leesy.

Carolinas Aviation Museum

Today Mallory, Clara, and I went on our end-of-the-summer adventure, to the Carolinas Aviation Museum at the airport in Charlotte.  I had been wanting to go for a long time, so we headed up there, along with Charlotte’s granddaughter Brenna.  She and Clara are almost exactly the same age, and they always have a good […]

Wednesday Evening Photos

This evening was our end-of-the-summer outing with the church – back to the pool at Wesley Acres, where the kids always have so much fun.  I hate the picture didn’t turn out any better, but from left are Mason, Austin, AJ, June, and Clara.  They stayed in the water until the pool shut down at […]

Lazy Tuesday

We had planned on going to Brattonsville this morning, but then the rain came in.  Then we talked about going to a movie, but just couldn’t make ourselves get up and get going.  So we just spent a lazy day at home, reading, working puzzles, napping – wonderful summer day.  And then what should happen […]

Solar Eclipse Day at the Museum

Andrew and Jenny have gone to Raleigh to see a concert, so Charlie and Adam are spending the weekend with us.  Today was the day at the museum in Rock Hill when we could learn all about the upcoming solar eclipse, so we went to check it out.  We are all VERY excited about the […]

Art Camp Show

Tonight Jeff & I headed into town to attend the art show, featuring pieces the kids made at the town art camp June and Clara attended last month.  They really all did such a good job.  Here is Clara standing under the collage she made – the beach picture at the top.  That’s actually June’s […]

Special Thursday

What a good day we had today.  Mallory and Clara were playing in their golf tournament, so just June and Mason were here, and we headed to Rock Hill for a quick lunch to celebrate Gran’s birthday with her. We couldn’t stay too long, because we had to drop June off to head to another […]

Clay Play

We’ve had a pretty low key week.  Tuesday while the kids were here they got out the new play dough Evie had given them in the bag of craft supplies, and Clara made a pineapple playing soccer.  Ha.  I did think she did a really good job 🙂
