Brookwood Homecoming Court 2011

Stephen was elected the freshman representative to the Brookwood Homecoming Court.  The following article appeared in our local newspaper:
Stephen escorted fellow freshman Julianne Dennis. The Homecoming Court was introduced at the Junior/Senior Powder Puff Game on Wednesday night and then again after the middle school football game tonight. It rained and there was lightning so the festivities were moved into the gym. Headmaster Mike Notaro did a great job as MC.

FSU v. Charleston Southern

I took Caroline, Stephen and Stephen's friend Daniel Fortner to the FSU v. Charleston Southern game on Saturday.  Jacob went with Papa and they sat 60 rows in front of us on the 50 yard line. The game took place on the eve of 9/11.  The band played America the Beautiful at halftime and as they did 60,000 sat quietly reflecting on the meaning of the date.  Afterwards the band played the "Battle Hymn of the Republic."  The halftime show was easily the best part of the game; and the game was fun to watch.

Here are a few pictures:

Tallahassee Florida Stake Girl's Camp 2011

Tuesday, January 21st the Cairo Young Women and I headed off to BOOT CAMP!  We stayed at the Woodmen of the the World's camp in Hosford, FL with the Florida stake.  It was awesome.  I went canoeing and swimming, hiked about five miles, and slept about 3 hours per night.  I was the camp nurse and so I spent most of my time in the clinic bandaging people up and administering various medications.  The girls made some great crafts and learned first aid and how to give CPR.  They shot bows and arrows, and rifles.  I believe the girls made lots of friends and had some experiences that will give them lots of cherished memories for years to come.  They are already talking about next year's girl's camp.  One even mentioned how she wished she could live there.  Thank you to all the stake leaders who put so much effort into making this week so special for us.  We love you all!  Enjoy the pictures.  You can click on any picture for an enlarged view.

We laughed. We cried. It was an emotional roller coaster. All this madness in only four days.
