Clara – Tuesday

Yesterday Clara helped me make chicken pot pies for supper.  I hate we didn’t have time for her to help me pick the meat off the chicken bones, but I knew I needed to that part ahead of time.  Here she is dividing the meat up into the two pans – one for their house […]

Saturday morning basketball

Charlie had his first – and last – playoff game Saturday morning.  Reports were that last time they played this team it was a really close game, but that wasn’t the case this week.  They still played hard and seemed to have a good time.  And after the game, Charlie – in the #2 vest […]

National Junior Scholar

Last night Jeff & I met Lindee & Jackson at the auditorium, where Mallory and her fellow Clover School District 8th grade Junior Scholars were recognized.  I got this picture of the three of them afterwards.  So proud of our girl.

Country Style Steak
