We are on our way to Atlanta and we have stopped over night near Berea College in Kentucky where my niece Carleigh graduated from college a few years ago. It was great to walk around the campus and remember the last time we were here celebrating with our family.
Last night Emma participated in the public library's reading in the MSU children's garden program. The program has teens spread throughout the MSU 4-H garden from 7-8:30 PM. Children can walk through the garden and stop at different spots to hear stories. In these photos Emma is reading "Pete the Cat." Here is the link to the library program: http://www.elpl.org/events/stories-garden-1
Emma is in a writing camp at MSU this week called "Just for Girls." She has been working on poems and shirt stories this week. At home she has started writing a novel about a group of kids trying to survive seventh grade (that's how she describes it).
On Monday night Joe tried hitting the baseball without a T-stand. Here he is about to hit a regular pitch for the first time during a game. He was also wearing ankle braces for the first time and we noticed that they made a big difference for him with running. Tonight is the last game of the Mid-Michigan Miracle League season. Go Cubs!
