Friday Night at the Track

Jeff is at a music festival this weekend, but last night I headed to Rock Hill to watch Adam race.  That’s him in first place – he led the first moto wire to wire.  The final was the closest race he’s ever run, but he came back and won it at the wire. He was […]

Goat Island Park

For the third and final End of Summer Adventure of the week, today Mallory, Clara, and I, along with Meg and Little Hope, headed over to check out Goat Island Park in Cramerton.  I’d seen the signs, but never been there before.  It’s an island that has been turned into a small town park.  We […]

Acolyte Training

Yesterday morning I took Mallory, June, and Clara to the church for their training, so they can start serving as acolytes on Sunday mornings.  Here is June, on the right, practicing with her buddy Emma. Mallory had golf practice and June had Meet the Teacher day, so it was just Clara and me who headed […]

On the Playground

The last thing we did yesterday before we left the park was to spend some time on the playground – of course.  The boys had brought some of their dinosaurs from home & had great fun playing with them when they got tired of climbing.  June took my camera and kept herself entertained while the […]

On the Courts

Jeff has been saying all summer that he wanted to get the kids out playing some tennis.  Yesterday, now that it’s the last week before school starts back, it finally happened with Charlie, Adam, & Mason.  Charlie had to play left handed, of course, with his arm in a cast, but he still seemed to […]

A couple of more pictures from today

By the time we got to the upstairs exhibits the boys were about done, but there was a great one of the meaningful and funny church signs that have appeared over the years in the area.  I loved it! We didn’t even notice it when we got there, but on the ground floor of the […]

Levine Museum of the New South

Charlie and Adam were here today, and we celebrated with our End of the Summer Adventure. We ended up going into Charlotte to check out a museum we’d never been to before. I felt kind of bad, because we’d been planning on going hiking. With Charlie’s broken arm, though, I didn’t want to be doing […]


This was crazy!  Saturday morning Jeff & I decided to drive over to Cramerton to try & find a yard sale where they were selling porch swings, which we are wanting to put on our back deck.  No such luck finding that, but we did drive past this house that had zebras in the front […]
