Saturday we were so excited to have our friends the Bewleys come and visit us. Becky and I have been friends for years. They moved 1000 miles away eight years ago and live in Baltimore now. Every summer she and her girls visit her parents in Ridgeland and always make a side trip to Grenada to see old friends. I am so glad we are on the list! Although we talk on the phone and email, its always good to see each other in person. Becky is the type of friend that you just pick up where you left off and that's exactly what we did! The kids got along great so we really had a wonderful visit! They were sweet to bring McKenzie and Matt gifts...books that I know they will enjoy so much. So, Becky I know you read our blog, thanks for making a special effort to come see us. Can't wait to see all of you again! Each year we take a group picture. Here are a few David took for us...
Tonight we found out some good news for McKenzie. She tried out for the 5th grade show choir, Pizzazz, today after school. Seventy-four students tried out and they picked 7 girls and 7 boys for the group. They posted the list of students who made it on the school web site tonight and we were so excited to see McKenzie's name on that list! Congratulations McKenzie! We're proud of you! Here's a link to the Pizzazz page.
