Lots of reasons to celebrate!

Aside from our real estate news, we've had three other special events over this past week. 

First. Emma got her driver's license!
 Another huge milestone to check off the list!
Second.  My father received a very special award from the Superintendent of Greenville Public Schools.
He's an amazing man who despite his very busy schedule at his funeral home, still finds time to be actively involved in the Greenville community and the Education Foundation.
  So proud of you, Dad!

Third.The girls finished up a busy week at Families for International Adoption Heritage camp.
 Emma was a classroom volunteer again in Josie's class. 
It was another fabulous experience at camp!  

Thanks for the great pictures, Kelly!

PS.  Can't wait to share all the estate sale purchases that Chris has been rehabbing for our cottage.  

He and I hit several fantastic sales over the last couple of weeks.

Congrats to your pretty girl for getting her drivers license! Let the driving begin! She's such a good sport to let you tell about her on your blog, I'm not sure my daughter would let me. :)
