Our Week in South Carolina

 
 
 
I’ve been sharing our week of fun in several blog posts, but I thought I would anchor Friday Fun School with this one . . .  and share with you, a few of my favorite things from our week in South Carolina.
 
 
Reminders that freedom is never free . . . 
 
 
 
 
And for every hero we honor, there are many who are never honored, simply because there are no witnesses left to tell their stories.
 
 

 Beautiful hands, creating . . .

 
 
beautiful works of art.
 
 

Nothing, and I do mean nothing, is better than New York style pepperoni pizza and Orange Crush.

Swinging on the moon . . .

and eating a Moon Pie.

 

A lovely park where you can be a statue if you wish . . .

But if you look up, you might get a cool surprise.

Learning about cotton . . .

 
 
is a hands-on experience . . . 
 
 
 
but boll weevils are definitely hands-off!
 
 
 
A rainbow of gorgeous, old homes . . . 
 
 
 
and dreams of moving in.
 
 
 
Enjoying God’s amazing creation in the spring flowers . . . 
 
 
 

a 1500 year old oak tree, with branches like the wings of an angel . . .

little albino squirrels scurrying about . . .

and the enormity of the Atlantic ocean.

 
 
 
Root beer floats at America’s biggest (or is that busiest?) Sonic Drive-in . . .  in small town U. S. A. –Hartsville, SC.
 
 
 
 
The greatest blessing (and the most fun!) of all . . . time with sweet friends.
 
 
 
 
And after leaving, missing them already, the gift of driving with these views . . . 
 
 
 
 
 
 
and arriving safely home.
