District Battle of the Books

Friday morning we were at Griggs Road Elementary to watch Clara and her Book-a-thons teammates in the district competition.  I got this picture of them as they were getting going on their first round of the Family Feud portion of the competition.  You can just see Clara’s face, in the teal T-shirts. And in the […]

Earl Scruggs Center

This morning I traveled with our Forever Young group from church to the Earl Scruggs Center in Shelby, NC.  I had been wanting to go ever since it opened maybe five years ago, and today I was finally able to make that happen.  I only saw a small part of it, because I got bogged […]

Langley Cousin Gathering
