Summer News and Pictures

Since I last posted, we've stayed busy. Grandma and Grandpa visited from Florida and got to meet the new house and the new dog. We enjoyed visiting with them and showing them our new town.

Not long after that, Mary Beth attended Vacation Bible School at a nearby Methodist Church. That turned out to be much fun, especially since we discovered that some of her friends from PreK were there, too.

We've spent many days at the neighborhood pool here in our new neighborhood. We meet up with our friends on the street as well as some of our school friends there. Mary Beth took swimming lessons through the Y, and has gained quite a lot of confidence in the pool.

One of our fun outings this summer was a trip to a blueberry farm. We picked a gallon of blueberries, and we're planning to go back for more!

We love blueberries!

For the fourth of July, we went to the Whigham family reunion in Dublin, Ga. Our cousin hosts a gathering at his home every other year. This year, Mary Beth learned to cast a fly rod at the pond, along with meeting several cousins, aunts, and uncles. Yep, that's Bella, our dog, in the picture. Hey, she's family, too!

And finally, the best and most wonderful news is that we finally sold our house in Rincon. On the same day as the closing, Kevin took a final exam for the training phase he's been in at his new job, and he aced it. So, we're enjoying happy days.

When I traveled back to the closing, we got to attend Mary Beth's best friend's birthday party. There was lots to celebrate!

Look closely at the picture of the birthday cake in the final picture. If you live anywhere near Springfield, GA and you want a cake, order it from Sheila's Cakes. The birthday girl's grandmother is opening a bakery - and she's very talented. Look at the tiny butterflies on the 5!
