2016 May Flowers

2 May 2016 – After April Showers


Fri: Linn was at a field trip with John’s class at SC State House, pix credit to Linn while Sophie was at another field trip to Saluda Shoals Park, pix credit to Elise. Being a hot day, chose to stay indoors in the AC and relieved that it is a case of been there, done that 🙂



A pleasant evening swimming with John learning to drive the boat and Sophie knee boarding. Jeff had to test out and take pix of his new gadget for water skiing.


Poor poor James who fell on the kitchen floor and bumped his head badly, pix credit to Linn who stayed home with him so that he could rest. That too shall pass! Thank goodness for a pre-teen and teen with good cheerful senses of humour and a doctor on call… lol



Sat: congratulations Ellie – ran under 30mins for 5k. Awesome run for Girls On The Run. Way to go Linn for her full support thru’&thru. The other kids (James is back to normal, climbing, jumping and running around!) arrived in time for the finish. Located on the grounds of Historic CAE Speedway, a beautiful 9acres grassy Infield with 40acres of parking.


A few mins drive away is the Cayce Farmers Market with the most delicious boiled peanuts.



Lazy and relaxing afternoon by and on the lake with Jeff’s group from the Nicaragua Medical Team Project and their families.


Katy was performing with the Irmo Middle Honors Orchestra at South Pointe High School resulting in Superior and Top ratings. Congratulations to them – seldom time but did wish I could be in 2 places at 1 time! What a wonderful day. Pix credits to Julie Stephens and Katy.


Sun: Apr showers bring May flowers. Happy May Day and Labour Day (in many countries but the US) to all. The early morning heavy rains with thunder woke us all to get to church on time on this 1st day of May.



Rev Lincoln’s sermons at Shandon Baptist Church are usually educational and Jeff’s teaching at bible-class today was the main reason for my presence. Quite a different kind of church as compared to those attended in school days! But the variations of the basic messages are still the same  – do onto others as you would like others to do onto you! Yes that simple!

I looked in temples, mosques and churches. But I found the Divine in my heart – Rumi
