What September Looked Like

Andrew and I went on another beautiful geocaching date this month.

Greensboro is beautiful!

I love getting out to enjoy the fresh air and greenery.

This was the second year that Greensboro hosted the National Folk Festival.
I got to go twice. First Andrew and I went down for date night.
We listened to railroad music, a mariachi band,
country gospel, and Portugese faro.
I love most types of live music and thoroughly enjoyed the variety.

The next day, I took Whitney and L down and we heard


a Tibetan opera,

and got to watch a Peruvian scissors dance,
which was awesome.
Even when this lady decided to stand
right between us and the stage...

My friend, Bea, had a super fun fundraiser for 
the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation:
Whitney and I joined her and had such a good time
raising money for a great cause.

FHE activity:  Word on the Street

When we have early release on a Wed, 
it's fun to head to SPARE TIME for half price day!

General Women's Meeting of Conference.
Now that Caroline's 8, she got to join us, too!
A great, spirit-filled meeting. Loved it.

Whit had her bi-annual eye check-up
with her favorite Pediatric Ophthalmologist:

Dr. Buckley!

She has been visiting him since she was ONE YEAR OLD.
Here's a pic from when she was five and at the peak of her crush!
So grateful for all the help he has given to Whit over the years.
I hardly notice her Duane's syndrome anymore.
She is doing amazing.
And this was probably her last visit with Dr. Buckley.
He told us that he'll be retired before her next visit in two years. :(

After MONTHS of trying with no results,
I finally found an organization to volunteer 
with refugees.
Their storage facility is located in one of
the old textile mills near downtown.

I felt so cool as I drove through the facility.
It was different than anywhere I had been before.


September was the height of marching band season.

We took the girls to some of the games.
It was so fun!
And we had beautiful weather.

And the band sounded awesome!
