Early morning walk

I am so sad that my camera is broken, but am still thankful that I have my phone for making pictures – even though they don’t turn out nearly as good. This morning I got up and was out for my walk as the sun was coming up. You surely can’t tell it in this picture, but it was lovely.

Olde Providence Park

Thursday Meg and I were in Charlotte running a few errands, and stopped off to get in a walk at a new-to-us park. It was a beautiful spot, and a beautiful day to be out. Here are a couple of pictures.

Adam’s First Rec League Game

This week we were in Rock Hill to see Adam kick off his season. Spectators weren’t allowed at their church league games this year, so we were excited to be able to see him back in action again. That’s him in the block socks, going up for a rebound.

And got this one after the game.

Tenderhearts 5K

Tenderhearts is a mission in our area that runs thrift stores to fund their women and children’s shelter.  Now they are trying to open a men’s shelter, and today Addie, Lee, June, Mason, & I walked their fundraiser 5K.  Lee has done all of their graphic design work, including the banner that was under the finish line sign.  AND you can get a glimpse of June right underneath it 🙂

Back at the Track

Thursday evening we were back cheering Charlie and his Bearcat teammates on, in their meet against the Clover Blue Eagles. Here he is running the third leg of the 4 x 800 relay.

At the soccer field

This evening Clara’s soccer game with the Clover Middle School Lady Eagles was at the stadium in town, since they were playing Oak Ridge, the other middle school in Clover. Our Blue Eagles went down in defeat, but they played hard, so we were proud. Here is Clara taking a goal kick (I think that’s what it’s called. All these years, and so many of the rules of soccer elude me 🙂 )

Saturday Pix

Saturday evening we had Addie’s birthday supper here at the house. The kids were excited when they got here to find that Jeff had rehung the tire swing. Here are June and Mason giving it its first tryout with the new rope.

We have not been able to go to any of Charlie or Adam’s church league basketball games this year, due to Covid restrictions, but Saturday was the season tournament for Adam – and we were so excited to find out when he got here that the Woodland Mites wound up the season as tourney champions. Here he is showing off the plaque before it goes in the trophy case at Woodland UMC.

Our most recent jigsaw puzzle, and possibly our last one of the season – we usually mostly work them during cold weather, when we can’t get outside. It was only 500 pieces, but one of the hardest ones we’ve done in a while. Beautiful, though, when we got it finished.

AND our cactus is in full bloom. We are just surrounded by beautiful things these days!
