Cooking and a waterfall

Yesterday when we got here after school June and Mason helped me get a couple of meatloaves made for supper – one for our house and one for theirs.  It was the first time they had actually handled the squishy meat mixture, both mixing and putting it in the pans.  Mason was way more into […]

Clara – Tuesday

Today Jeff and I headed out to Bethany Elementary School to watch Clara participate in their local Battle of the Books.  They didn’t place, so won’t be going to the district competition on Friday, but they were the only team made up of only fourth graders, and they only lost by six points, she said.  […]

Adam in the Woods

This afternoon Adam and Mason came over to help Jeff out in the woods, to work off their time paying for the windows the broke last summer.  I wasn’t feeling great, but did get down to get a couple of pictures of them at work.  They got a good bit of cleaning out done, and […]

Fun Friday

Yesterday Jeff took advantage of the beautiful spring weather and got some work done out in our woods.  I even went out and worked with him for a few minutes!  Other than that got some cleaning done, and then when they got out of school, met Addie and the kids in town.  She took Mason […]

The Lion King

Last night we headed out to Bethany Elementary to see Clara and the rest of the school choir perform in The Lion King.  They were so cute, and just did a great job.  Clara is the elephant pretty much in the middle of this picture 🙂 Jackson took this picture of us afterwards. We were […]

Our last snow?

At least we’re hoping.  I took this Wednesday morning when I headed out to go to Gran’s house.  The deck was covered with about this much snow, and I did go through a couple of patches where it was coming down between here and there, but it didn’t last long.  And we were out working […]

Tuesday Fun

Tuesday morning I met Charlotte for breakfast, and then as soon as I got home Jeff and I headed to Rock Hill to meet Maxie and Diane to do some bowling.  The first ball I rolled was a strike – after that, about half of them were gutter balls.  Ha.  Great time, though. Then that […]

Happy birthday to Addie!

We celebrated A’s big day with lunch here Sunday after church.  All were here except Jackson, who was off on a golf weekend, and Jenny, who was working.  Meg and Mike joined us – it was a good time celebrating our baby girl 🙂

Super Saturday

Started off the morning in King, where I helped out at the 9th annual Feed Stokes 5K/Half Marathon.  It was great having my nephew Nathan there running for the first time! Then home in time for a nap before heading to Clara’s Biblical Studies Release Time pancake supper fund raiser, and watching her sing with […]
