Hurricane Prep

Y’all! My heart breaks watching the news of the devastation caused by Hurricane Florence and Hurricane Michael. Our town was spared. My sister lives about 35 miles from some areas of total devastation in Florida. She and her family and their home are unharmed. Please continue to pray for those affected and try to serve however possible. Our kids’ school has adopted another school and we are doing a food drive for them.

While we were out of school, here are some things we did:

Charlie and I shopped for food while AC was at gymnastics and Daddy was at work:IMG_6047Lots of play time at home and we visited Daddy at work. I think they would make great assistants for him. 🙂 IMG_6091IMG_6093AC had gymnastics so Charlie and I played tennis.IMG_6096AC built a shelter from the storm.IMG_6140More slime and baking going on since we had power.IMG_6157IMG_6202IMG_6206IMG_6203IMG_6208IMG_6204My babies~IMG_6178IMG_6159Playing outside after the rain:IMG_6161Then the sun came out so we went for a family run:IMG_6137By Saturday we were ready for some football!IMG_6288IMG_6360After the game we hopped in the truck and headed to the mountains for some apple picking fun!IMG_6361IMG_6362IMG_6363IMG_6364IMG_6322IMG_6347IMG_6317Look at my sweet loves~IMG_6605IMG_6604

FoUrTh grade!

I remember fourth grade. I can close my eyes and picture the classroom. We were in the building up the hill at Lexington Elementary. Ms. White was my teacher. I remember our class pets – Topsy and Turvy – guinea pigs. I remember the field day shirts we made that were blue and we puff painted tornados on them. I remember our chant from field day…”White’s tornados coming through…one by one and two by two!” I remember her spending time with some of us over the summer to get us ahead with math practice. It’s hard to believe our babies are in fourth grade now! They have had a great start to their school year. Their teachers are Mrs. Rogers and Mrs. Yelton. Here are some pictures from their first day! I also had the opportunity to pray with a bunch of moms on the first day of school for the upcoming year. It was a wonderful morning!IMG_5663IMG_5668IMG_5651IMG_5657IMG_5665IMG_5685IMG_5647IMG_5645IMG_5658IMG_5649IMG_5674IMG_5690
