Chip received the Performance Award for the trumpet section of the SMS band.  We were surprised and proud!
Bernie and I ate with the Millwoods last night—Brad is a good chef, which gave me time to visit with Carolyn and Audrey–even Bernie knows how sweet Audrey is to cuddle with.  We had a great time!

Parker and I were at LBL last week, which is why I didn’t update until now.  The kids really had a great trip–the weather was beautiful, which made it extra nice.

French Braiding Hair was the biggest activity on our last morning at LBL.  What a cute bunch of girls!
