The Month of June

It has been a busy but fun month for us.  We started off with R going to the Best of Preps in Chattanooga.  She was selected to the area 2nd team for girls golf.  John Smoltz, former Atlanta Braves pitcher, was the speaker for the evening.


The next activity was a trip to Texas to see the eldest grandson, P, graduate from Odem High School.


It was planes,IMG_3184



and bus rides!


Of course, our first stop was…


Our hotel had Texas-shaped waffles, which are always a hit.


T enjoyed getting to hit in the batting cage.


Swimming was a great time.



Fishing was another activity…


Payne and Tripp

There was a time for relaxing with Buster Posey…

Payne was selected to play in the Texas High School Baseball Coaches All-Star game as a first baseman.  It was great to see him play in his last game!  A week later he was named to the All-State first team as a first baseman.  When his regular season was over, he was named All-District as a pitcher.  In addition, he was on the All-State Academic team in baseball as well as football.  So proud of his athletic success as well as his academic success.  He was Salutatorian of his class and will be attending Texas A&M in the Fall.

The computer is not letting my add some of the pictures that I wanted to add, but if it changes it mind later, I’ll add more to the post.


June was a fun month with lots of activities.

Wow - - the more years the grandkids add to their lives, the more activities the grandparents are able to attend! So thankful you have blogged consistently (not like some of us - - ME) - - - because we have watched them grow up with you! R is such a beautiful young woman. All the guys are handsome, too - - and all are such diligent workers - - whether sports or academics or at home. Lots to be proud of.
