Last week, we took baby Stella to Meme's to spend the night, and the three of us went to Memphis for a Redbird game. Sam had a great time, even though he did not catch a pop fly. We had a wonderful meal at Blue Fin, stayed in a swanky hotel room at the Westin, and felt , as Sam put it, "very posh"
Later that week, the four of us went to Grandmother Clark's house to spent a night . We each took turns driving the mule, which gave Stella a great big head of curls- how many Chinese girls have naturally curly hair, any way?! We looked at deer tracks, the soy bean fields, and some huge old trees- big fun, I can tell you. We are looking forward to going back out there.
This week was VBS at Saint Luke. The theme was "Crocodile Dock" - a bayou setting, complete with fireflies, possums, and turtles. We had fun in the craft room- when ever the time ran long, Meredith would entertain the children with a song-dance-drawing lesson that she made up on the spot. Talent obviously runs in my family, I say.
We only have a few weeks left before school gets back into swing, and I cannot believe it. This summer went by faster than most- but it could just be me.
I hope you are using the rest of your summer making some wonderful memories with your family. I know we are!
