Last weekend Addie, Lee & the kids got a new car, and they are all SO excited. The kids have really been wanting us to come see it, so Wednesday when we took them home after the golf match we finally got to see it. They love it and are SO excited!
Wednesday was Mallory’s second match of the season. She didn’t do as well as she did the first match, but friends who know about this sort of thing have said that it was a much harder course than the first one – and of course we are always proud of her & think she’s done great. Wednesday afternoons is when we have June and Mason, and it was their first time attending a golf match. As has happened before, June kept herself occupied with my camera. Here are a couple of her shots 🙂
Tuesday afternoon when Clara was here we worked once again on the teabag rocket experiment. We had tried it last week at her house, but I didn’t want to try it inside at their house, since it involved a flying flame. And it was windy outside, so the tea bag kept blowing over. AND the one time we got one to light, it didn’t work. The instructions I’d read said some tea bags worked and some didn’t – I guess based on the material they were made out of? Anyway, I got new Bigelow teabags to try, and they worked like a charm! Clara said it was the coolest thing since Harry Potter :-). Here she is lighting our experiment.
Clara started soccer Saturday, and today, just 48 hours later, Mallory started her golf season, with the first victory they have ever won in a head-to-head match. Here is Mal putting for birdie. She didn’t get it, but did make par, so we were proud.
We got this picture afterwards of the team and their Coach Zack. It was their first win – they didn’t win a single head-to-head match last year – so we were SO excited. The girl next to Mallory with glasses is the only one of these varsity team members that is even in high school – the rest are all 7th and 8th graders at the middle school. They call them the baby eagles :-). Great afternoon.
Then as we were walking to the car, we were SO excited when Jackson’s brother Jonathan drove by, with brand new Calhoun Weeks Dover in the backseat. I wanted to make them get him out of the car so I could hold him, but he didn’t seem as excited about that. So precious.
It’s soccer season again, so yesterday Jeff & I were off to Boiling Springs to see Clara play for the first time since the spring. We were a little late, since we first went to the wrong field, but got there in time to see both of their 3-0 & 4-0 victories. Here are a couple of pix of our girl on the field. So proud!
June served as an acolyte for the first time this morning during the early service. I was in the nursery, so had to watch her on the screen – but was very thankful the screen was working this morning. That’s her with the big white bow in her hair lighting the candles.
