Unexpected

A girls’ trip to Savannah to celebrate my friend Lauretta’s 50th birthday granted us a very unexpected surprise…snow! We traveled to Savannah, GA for a couple days with a full agenda of things to do and places to eat and shop but never expected the opportunity to play in snow…

Hurricane Irma

Shaw and friends came home to wait out Irma…

Irma left our roof damaged. Henry worked nonstop during the storm, so Shaw was doing the investigating, with help from Pop and his friend Chris.

We were much luckier than most in our area; we lost power for only one day. During the wait for power, the girls were cuddled up near the window, reading to pass the time.

Yes!

Yes, STRONG girls do make a STRONG world! Lauren, you can do anything you desire to do!

E-I-E-I-Oops!

Highlights from the second grade play, in which Lauren played the Farmer’s Wife. It was super cute and very well performed. The backdrop was amazing. I was in awe of how well the teachers prepared the kids for a show this big.

As part of her costume, Lauren needed a white apron, so I immediately texted Grandma Devanie to ask if she could possibly make one for us in a short time frame; she did even better:AWQ within a half hour, she replied with a picture of an apron that had been made by her great grandma in 1921. It was perfect! She sent it to Lauren, who wore it proudly for the play.
