Last night we went into town to the monthly Clover School Board meeting, to be there when Mallory and her teammate Matthew Setzer were recognized for winning the Design Award at the first robotics meet of the year. There is a bigger one of these trophies that is in the trophy case at the middle […]
Sunday afternoon her buddies helped her husband Dennis and her daughter Elizabeth surprise Evie for her 60th birthday. The actual day is still a week away, but this was just what worked best in everyone’s schedule. Lindee took this group photo during the festivities.

The kids were out of school Tuesday for Election Day, so Charlie and Adam were here to go with us to vote. And to help me make pies that afternoon for our church dinner.
