Papa’s World – inside the new home – Part Three – the tour continues!

The middle bedroom – decorated with pictures of where Sherry grew up – Mount Jewett, Pa.

This room is where we put pictures of Mount Nebo – the historic 1800’s eight sided Swedish church –

which was built by the Swedes who settled here. It also is the final resting place of her realatives.

There is a copy of a very old map of the town of Mount Jewett – which we just framed but have not hung yet.

And of course the historic Kinzua railraod bridge – constructed in the late 1800’s –

across a valley and over 300 feet high and a mile long – and part of it taken down by a tornado!

This same bridge is where they filmed a episode of the TV series “BIGFOOT”!

This was all territory that belonded to the Seneca Indian tribe before the white man.

Looking back toward the hallway to the front door – with the bedrooms and guest bathroom to the left –

The office is to the right and behind that wall in the center. To the right is the hall leading to the garage and laundry room. We choose this model for the open concept and the enclosed office space.

Papa’s World – walking a nature trail with Debby in Winchester Va.

A picture along the trail in a display for a resident hiker of the Appalachian Trail she took beginning to end.

This is all part of the Shenandoah Museum complex in Winchester Va. A hiking trail – through the woods.

Sherry took all these pictures as we walked about three miles!

The pathway is very wide – I would guess eight feet and all made up with crushed limestone! There are benches to sit on the entire walkway – and areas to sit quietly – a really nice walk and easy on the feet!

We have walked this every time we come to visit and now in late spring – the flowers and trees are full!

Papa’s World – Drywall done – cabinets in – tile next – getting close!

We pulled up to the front of the house – DRYWALL in the trash bin!

You see – there has been a delay and shortage in drywall – all over the country –

which has held up our completion by a month! Along with inspectors and inspections!

I was excited as this meant the drywall was being put in!

When I walked into the garage – it had the first coat of MUD on!
Then – I went inside and it was all done – first coat of mud – we were back on schedule after four weeks!

It has been a long four to five weeks with hardly any progress – but we prayed and it is now moving forward.

Looking toward the front from the sun room – to the left – hallway – entrance to the bedrooms and bathroom – middle is outer wall to the office – and to the right hallway to laundry room and garage. Open space is vaulted living room.
The kitchen and breakfast nook.
Window to the left – breakfast nook and the yard – rear windows – the outside enclosed lanai.
Looking from the hallway into the living room – to the left – kitchen island and the breakfast nook – to the right – Sherry standing in the sun room. The whole back of the house is windows – open patio behind her through the windows.
Master bedroom with bathroom to the left and hall way door to the right.

And two days later when we visited – the mud on the dry wall was completed – sanded – and we had CABINETS!

Kitchen and Island
Master bathroom
Guest bathroom

We are excited – they told us tile is going in – grading outside – doors to be hung.

Now there is a delay and shortage on PAINT!

Because of the ICE STORM in Texas and the Pandemic.

They told us they would continue doing the things they could until they got the paint.

Our new community – Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – mainland side – LOT # 89!

We are happy – moving forward -perhaps by the time this posts – we will have a move in date!

Our lot is backed by trees that will not be cleared – it is deemed protected wetlands.

We will have lots of roads to walk and new trails going in.

Almost all the purple area has been sold years ago – but no one has seemed to build on them –

maybe a half dozen really big homes!

We do not know why – investment?

You can buy lots there from individuals for a hefty price!

For now it remains paved roads – old growth shaded trees and street lights – utilities

and beautiful green areas and ponds.

Papa’s World – a evening with friends golfing Magnolia Greens – late dinner!

A bright sun rise to a eventful full day of walking – getting ready – visiting the storage unit – and finally – teeing off!
Buck on the first tee at 4:40 pm. We were golfing late – Cindy had a lot of stuff to do at work!

So – the plan was made – golf nine – eat dinner and then go home!

We could of stayed with them – but – lugging all the stuff I need – my sleep machine etc. just easier to drive the hour plus drive back to the condo – besides – plenty of more times exist in the future!

Sherry getting ready to tee off on the second hole!

We played our scramble format – Buck and me – they played best ball – WE LOST!

Cindy teeing off – Sherry spotting the ball!

Now – we lost two holes to them – one by one stroke and one by two strokes!

We play even up – and we tied the other seven holes.

But – on the hole we lost by one stroke – we parred – they birdied!

On the one we lost by two strokes – they parred and we four putted – just the way it goes!

Cindy – birdie putt – made it – we parred – they are so good!

We have played this format for years and years – we at one time played couples vs couple – then we played mixed couple vs. mixed couple – but the gals challenged us – the other ways split pretty even – this way – THEY WIN!

My buddy – my partner – golfing together – we did beat them a few weeks ago – but we had to shoot a 39 to beat them!
Thank you for reading Papa’s World – my drive – second shot coming up – we four putted – double bogie – LOST!
Sherry teeing off – right down the middle – both are that way!

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – random pictures – kids – golf – and a rainbow in the fountain on the lake.

Today – I post some pictures – just random pictures – but ones I have close to my heart!
Taylor holding MorMor’s hand – in turn MorMor also holding Bode’s hand.

They adore Sherry – whom they call MorMor – Swede for Mothers Mother!

When we walk with all three – it usually is Taylor who loses out to the other two in holding her hands.

This time it was Cassidy – who with each passing day – is becoming more and more independent.

These two are coming closer and closer together as they grow up.

They are twins – but had to come early as Taylor was taking all the nutrients.

Taylor is going to be really tall – close to six foot while Cassidy will be like her mother 5’6″.

Taylor loves to ride horses – Cassidy has a variety of interests –

but will sit for hours drawing off her computer and is really good!

I thought this to be funny – it brought a smile to my face!

We moved south to find more time to golf – warmer weather and being close to our friends!

Sherry and Cindy – we have been friends with the McBrides for almost 35 years.

They moved about 25 or 26 years to the Wilmington N.C. area – and we would spend time with them once or twice a year.

Then we moved to NVA and they would do the same.

Now – we are building a new home about 40 miles away from them –

and if the weather is nice – we golf once a week with them –

always on a new course – could be on the weekend or a week day.

They can and do stay with us and we do the same with them.

If our new home is not done on time and we have to give up the condo – they have offered us a place to stay.

FRIENDS! GOOD TIMES! LAUGHS!

This is what we have wanted to do for a very long time – it was too expensive in NVA and down here so many courses to choose from.

We both have a love to golf – one of Sherry’s highlights in golfing came with the day she broke 50 –

and it was a day she was golfing with her father!

A memory she shall always carry with her on the course. Now – she beats me! LOL

The view we have almost every morning when we wake up – the master bedroom has a big glass sliding door on her side of the bed – where all she has to do each morning is open her eyes and see this.

I see it each morning also – but I always am up before the dawn – have been that way all my life.

My favorite time of the day – writing my blog – sipping my coffee and watching the sun rise –

listening to the sounds of nature and just enjoying morning time.

Now the sun shines – causing a rainbow in the mist of the water fountain!
A peaceful setting we shall miss when we leave – but we have had by the end – nine months.

A memory we shall carry forward into the new home.

You can hear the pounding surf a half mile away –

We walk there almost every day –

the water fowl – geese – ducks – mallards – swans – otter – turtles – snakes

and really huge fish we can see when we look down onto the water.

Storms blowing in and out – rain and wind – nature at its best.

It would of been nice to have lived to the left of the picture – single family homes!

But – they were way too expensive – and the condos here – not enough space and no garage.

We have a storage unit – not a lot – but enough so that it would not fit.

The town houses here besides the condo’s – were out of our price range –

plus the one we looked at – needed a lot of work.

This is a beautiful area – one I shall remember –

We were blessed to have spent time here – but it also was expensive!

Papa’s World – BROOK GREEN GARDENS – a must to see south of Myrtle Beach on rte 17.

If you want a peaceful walk – there are miles of trails and paths – among the old growth live oaks – the tall cypress and pine trees of South Carolina.
Along the way – a boardwalk – near the marsh – through the grounds of the old slave quarters – and see the history of this historic old plantation – and the huge rice fields – and wonder how these people lived – worked and toiled.
Scattered about over the acres and acres of the park – hundreds of bronze statues – depicting life of the world – by famous artists – some bigger than life – beautiful to see – and a story behind each one!
A building of hundreds of bronze statues – faces – animals – marble – stone – behold the beauty and capture the imagination of ones soul.
Carved out of wood – almost real like – exceptional artistic work.
Another work by the same artist – carved out of wood!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – I shall continue in the next blog with our walking tour.

Papa’s World – more memories of the past six teen months – living life one day at a time!

Debby Ella Mike Papa Sherry Sarah Maddy

On our way back home to NVA – we stopped in Lynchburg to watch Maddy –

Our oldest granddaughter – play soccer!

She starts as a Sophomore – and plays for the University of Lynchburg.

One thing she wanted to do – to get out in the fresh air and hike with her family!

Which we did on this paved trail that runs along the river in Lynchburg Va.

Gerhard and Jennie

One of our very first visitors after we moved to Ocean Keyes in North Myrtle Beach –

was the father and mother of our son in law – Marcus.

They came down and spent four days with us – playing cards – walking the beach –

and introducing us to a new game called RUMMIKUBE!

We have always gotten along with them and every Sunday – sat beside them in the pew!

A short visit – Sherry Sarah Debby – came to visit – Mike could not be here – Maddy was in college.

Debby and the two granddaughters came for a short visit –

and we took them hiking – which they love to do – at Vareens memorial Garden.

Walking along the ICW and over the marsh.

They will be back as we took them also to the new house build!

Carol and Mike – our close neighbors back in WNY for 12 1/2 years!

Mike and Carol – we lived next door to them – invited us and our friends – we have all been friends for years-

to their lake house in WNY -Lake Chatauqua – for a long weekend of riding the lake in their beautiful boat!

They have extended another invitation for this August – the same group – for four days!

They own a business that sends crews to do commercial painting all over the East Coast

and this year are expanding to the mid west.

Mike – started this when he was very young — and what a company he has turned it into!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World!

Cindy Papa Sherry Carol

On the lake in Mike and Carols boat!

All eight of us fit very comfortable – we spent three days cruising the lake for hours at a time!

All eight of us have been friends for years and years!

Papa Jimmy Buck

In this picture – my friends of the last 36 years for Buck and 40 plus hears for Jimmy!

Jimmy and I worked together and played softball together in the mid to late ’70’s!

In the back ground across the pond on this hole in Magnolia Greens –

sits Buck and Cindy’s new home they built a couple years ago!

I really like this area and would of moved here if we could of found something

like this and in our price range.

Friends and golfing buddies – MEMORIES!

Buck Cindy Dottie

Dottie – Jimmy’s wife and Cindy – Bucks wife – all these years still getting together!

We all moved away from our home town areas.

Yet – at least twice a year we manage to get together –

here we are at Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach!

Speak no evil – see on evil and hear no evil!

In the last 16 months – sometimes we struggled to balance social distancing –

and that was very true with family.

Sitting in our garage while the three little ones sat on a tarp in the lawn at the end of the driveway.

Or visiting them standing outside and little Bode hiding behind his parents peaking out at us!

That broke my heart.

But – we have come a long ways on this – we did stay with family after we sold our house

at the end of June last year!

Family is important and we have been tested twice and so have they!

My little buddy – Bode – who when we stay with them – will come down the stairs to the bottom area where we stay –

PAPA – can I sit on your lap!

This is at 5:45 am. – while I am writing my blog!

He knows I wake up early and down he comes- when we are not here – he sleeps in!

Last week he asked me on a kids message –

he had called me – “PAPA – WHEN WILL WE SEE YOU AGAIN”?

I tear up when he talks to me like that!

When the family Krohn – the three little ones and Marcus and Tammy – came to visit on their Spring Break.

Here we are having lunch after they drove 6 hours – at Crooked Hammock at Barefoot Landing!

They spent all weekend and until Friday of the following week with us!

This made us very happy as they got to see where we are and where we are building our house.

They now know it is but a six hour drive for them to visit!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World-

Papa’s World – more memories of the past six teen months – living life one day at a time.

Before the Pandemic and while in Florida – met up with very old friends – Lynda and Fred – going back some 45 years!

I knew both before I met Sherry – Freddie and I went to 7th. grade thru 12th. grade.

We met at a place that was half way to where they live in Florida and to where we were staying!

Great time with old friends. MEMORIES!

We traveled before the Pandemic – meeting friends along the way.

And – – we were careful – as were some more friends we met.

Almost seven months after the start of the Pandemic – we met up with Pam and Bob – in Berkeley Springs WV.

Bobby and I go back to grade school – friends for life.

Sports – a few drinks – camping out – running the streets – never anything destructive – just boy hood memories.

By the time this blog posts – Pam and Bob will stop in on there way back to New England.

They have a drive RV towing a car.

We are all safe – testing and vaccinations.( except Sherry who is allergic to the vaccine)

It will be good to once again relive memories – Freddie – Bobbie and I had growing up!

Many memories – friends – family and life in general. The journey living life one day at a time.
John and Nancy – members and friends form our church – Community Lutheran Church in Sterling Va.

Fourteen years we attended services there.

John and Nancy moved to Charleston about a year before we moved.

On our way back from Florida – just before the Pandemic – we stopped in and stayed – regaling in memories.

They gave us a walking tour of Charleston’s waterfront and historic district.

A few months after we moved to Myrtle Beach area – we met halfway in Georgetown S.C.

And – about a month or so ago – they visited us at the condo.

Friends – MEMORIES!

Papa with son in laws Mike and Marcus.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – Sherry and I went to Eagles Nest to golf – a relaxing four hours – good course.

Eagles Nest – Little River – North Myrtle Beach.

We had stopped here over the weekend – as we have driven by it hundreds of times!

Two entrances and finally I just turned in and followed the road for about a mile.

And then we were there – EAGLES NEST GOLF COURSE!

What we found out later – was this is the longest course in S.C.

and maybe the longest I have EVER played!

The back tee box – if you play that – the course is over 8200 yards long!

And full of beautiful scenes such as these!

There are many marsh areas such as this – did not see any snakes or gators!

It was more like this most holes!

We were teamed up with a father & son.

We introduced ourselves – we had not planned on playing with anyone.

But – after the first hole awkwardness

It turned into a fun day!

A view down the fairway!

I had watched my wife and how she was hitting.

I noted that she was doing everything right except two things!

I told her to tee her ball up a little back in her stance –

and to always tee it up the same height.

She was coming over the top on her ball – still hitting it good but not as far as she has.

This green – she hit the cart path – this hole for her was 299 yards – after I adjusted her stance and tee height – she ripped one down the right side and it hit the cart path and followed it toward the green – we searched and searched where we thought it had gone – the two guys we were with found it! It was laying just off the green on this side along the cart path. It had gone 299 yards!

And – I might add – she beat me by FIVE STROKES on the front nine!

So much for me showing her what to do! LOL!

After I showed her the adjustment – with her ladies tee – she was out driving the rest of us!
And she continued her good play – she also beat me the second nine!

Just a word to our friends – Cindy and Buck – the ladies have to give us strokes from now on! LOL

They are just too darn good!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – visit to the new build – roof is done – siding half done – insulation this week!

Every Sunday we go to Cameron Woods where our new home is being built – no one is working on Sunday so we can look it over outside and inside – and our builder calls us each Monday to give us a update. That way we can ask questions if we see something and get answers without meeting in person.

Here is the front – siding in entrance way is done – roof shingles done – back and side siding half done.

The right side of the house – back to front – breakfast nook – kitchen – window laundry room and then the garage.

At the rear will be the covered – screened in lanai.

The covered – screened in Lanai with the back door and then the open patio. To the right is the breakfast nook and kitchen – all windows.
To the right – covered Lanai – open Patio and windows of the sun room – then the master bedroom.
The rear – Master bedroom and going to the front – master bath – bedroom 2 and then bath two and then bedroom 1.

They have told us we still are looking at early June for closing!

Keeping fingers crossed!

We are in the condo until end of June – we have a storage unit 3 miles from the new build.

If needed – friends have offered us a place to stay.

Papa’s World – Coloring eggs on the lanai -exploring Barefoot Landing – LITTLE ONES!

One of the first things Sherry did for the little ones after they had a good nights sleep-

Was to color Easter Eggs!

So – she hard boiled the eggs – set up on the Lanai – and they got to it!

Taylor Cassidy Bode – on the Lanai overlooking the small lake at Ocean Keyes – coloring Easter Eggs!

This has been a tradition with MorMor – as they call her -Swede for Mothers Mother!

She has done this even before Bode – who is six was born!

Afterward – things were washed up and packed for Tammy to take back to NVA!

Cassidy Bode Taylor

I think Cassidy and Bode should of been the twins!

They are so much alike and act the same.

It is hard for me to tell the difference if I am not looking at them – to see who is talking!

Now – Bode is going to be tall like Taylor – who is so laid back!

She likes her “TAYLOR” time!

She also is going to be the tallest of the granddaughters

With Maddy being 5′ 6″ – Ella 5′ 8 1/2 ” and Sarah pushing Ella at 14 years old!

We took the family to Barefoot landing in North Myrtle Beach –

We had taken them there before and the little ones love the playground!

There was a Easter Egg hunt – scavenger – find the different stores hunt going on!
Cassidy at one of our favorite stores!
Cassidy and Taylor with I think Frozen Princess’s

Then it was time for a late lunch – our reservations were ready!

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – Slowly increasing my walking distance – hit 6 1/2 miles – new high! BEACH!

Sherry went to visit her sister – so I had no car – but – that did not matter – I walked!

I decided that instead of one big walk for the day –

I would break it up and do several smaller walks

So I walked four times!

And it was a total of 6 1/2 miles!

The first picture was the beach entrance I choose – after walking .60 miles to get there!

This picture is of me after walking onto the beach.

It was a great walk and the sun came out making it warm!

I choose this entrance because I walked a new path

and it brought me to this street.

You see – every street here running West to East –

ends in a beach entrance and most have parking lots!

So I turned left – North – and headed up the beach – back to our normal entrance!

It was almost to low tide – not many people there!

Looking back the way I had just walked! Still not many people!
The beach exit I choose – I came here because to the right is a ramp and it leads to a bench to sit down on. The sand has nearly reclaimed that part- but I find it peaceful to just sit and listen to the surf and watch the people!

Plus there is a boardwalk all the way back to the parking lot-

giving you time to clean off any sand in your shoes!

One last look down the beach from where I had just walked.

Papa’s World – Lunch on the beach at Snooky’s and seeing DARTH VADER!

The view from the top deck and bar of Snooky’s on the beach – the other Snooky’s is situated on the ICW!

We decided after our attempt to walk the beach –

which was very windy and cold –

to drive back down the Ocean Blvd to Snooky’s!

Sherry and I brought Tammy and the little ones here when they visited.

Sarah and Debby at the table surrounded by heaters!

It was chilly out on the open patio.

We choose this because of the heaters and wanting to be out in the open

for social distancing.

Every other table was empty!

This was the last full day they would be here!

The four days have gone by so quickly.

We packed a lot into it – Mike is a teacher and could not come down.

Maddy is in college with her classes and in the middle of Spring Soccer.

Ella a senior in H.S. Debby – oldest daughter Sarah – youngest of the three – in 8 th. grade

We sat out there on the patio – when I heard Sherry exclaim ‘ THERE HE IS” pointing toward the beach!

She had read a article in the newspaper and seen the interview on TV.

A man who was dressing up as DARTH VADER in Myrtle Beach and walking up and down the beach

entertaining the children – with his Laser –

And he happened to be right here!

Sherry and Ella

Now Ella is a huge – huge Star Wars fan!

For her 16th. birthday as a present – we took her to Florida with us for a week.

And the highlight of that trip was her going to the STAR WARS park.

That was what she wanted to do forever!

DARTH VADER about to walk out on the beach!

So – they both got up – Sherry and Ella – and down the deck they went!

I went up on the top deck so I could get a clear picture of what was going on the beach!

Here Sherry and Ella are nearing DARTH VADER who is Laser fighting with a young boy!

She has Star Wars figurines from her youth – ever since she could walk and talk.

She has seen every movie – over and over again.

Ella and DARTH VADER!

This was one of her highlights of the entire trip to visit us at the beach!

And it was all by chance – we wanted lunch – we selected Snooky’s because it was close

And we knew they had heaters outside!

Papa’s World – Cousin Douglas comes to visit – Swede’s talk!

The view from our condo – never gets old.

Douglas will stop overnight – on his journey back North from Florida.

Doug is first cousin to Sherry – both his grandmother and Sherry’s grandmother were sisters

and both from Sweden first generation.

Douglas and Sherry in our condo.

Doug is two years older and can speak fluent in Swedish.

He was a educator all his life – Principal – Superintendent and author.

With over 7000 followers on his twitter blog site.

This is the first time in I believe four years since we last saw him.

And – have invited him to stop in on his next journey through the area.

A lot of family history from both of them was discussed.

I love history – and family history is my observations I like to listen to.

I would sit for hours and talk to her mother about her and her family and childhood.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – another page in our book of life.

I write for those who live and for those who come in the future.

A journal of family – friends and times with pictures.

I have always regretted that I have no history of my own family

other than what I remember and everyone who could tell me is gone.

HEALTH and NUTRITION AGING HEALTHY ONE DAY AT A TIME!

Papa’s World – Where did the time go? New build – garage and entry.

Our new home being built in Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – Brunswick County – N.C.

As you can see – the garage has a entrance directly into the hallway and laundry room!

Our life has evolved – from NVA to S.C. and eventually N.C.

All in the span of some nine months!

Where has the time gone – and when did those 40 years fly by?

We started dating in early 1981 – married in June of 1982 –

and today – building a house!

The garage with Sherry looking into the laundry room and the kitchen straight down the hall.

The garage has a overhead storage area with pull down steps.

The three entrance doors are leaning against the walls.

There is a pipe coming up out of the cement floor that I have no idea what it is for!

We are hoping to be in by early June!

We have a storage unit nearby and have our belongings in there.

The beginnings of the kitchen – island and the breakfast nook – bump out window and beyond the covered over windows – the screened in covered lanai!

The walls have been coated on the bottom with a termite barrier!

The floor plates are bolted down into the cement

and metal corner braces to code for hurricanes installed!

Solid construction to N.C. building codes.

The vaulted living room and the extended sun room and to the right – the master bedroom and bath and closet.
Sherry inspecting our office – where we will do our home based internet business – http://www.sf.juiceplus.com – which will have french doors – and beyond her is the hall and laundry room and to the right the kitchen.

It was exciting to tour on a Sunday with no one around!

The spare bath – just across the hallway of the office and to the left and right will be two bedrooms.

This is the third house that we have had built – most likely our last – both of us will be 72 !

If you wish to see more of the build – visit my previous blog

Where did the time go?

It has the pictures of the rest of the house!

The living room – sun room – breakfast nook – kitchen and beyond the patio and screened in covered lanai!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – Just things in life!

Is there anyone out there that does not look at themselves in a mirror

and wonder
“HOW DID THIS HAPPEN”? LOL

Things in life – we eat to survive – but we also do by habits!

Evening sunsets!

Things in life : We look at the heavens –

wondering – seeing painted pictures.

The stars at night – the Moon and planets – clouds – storms –

the wonder of nature –

The questions – WHO WHAT WHY WHERE WHEN all form when looking toward the heavens!

We move about – we share thoughts – we adapt and we move on.

The things in life – ever changing – the World revolves –

We age – we think back –

and then – you are a senior –

Where did it go?

Our minds are a wonderful place – we see and then we re see!

Sometimes it takes a second –

but we mostly can tell!

Things in life do not always seem to be as we see them!

THINGS IN LIFE!

A very smart man – a profound way to look at nature and how we have a effect on it!

Papa’s World – Bode – will you walk with me? Twins – Blue glasses and desks.

He quietly came down the carpeted stairs –

and walked softly over to me where I was writing my blog.

Bode – six years old – our only boy – five grand daughters!

“How many sleeps are left Papa – before you go away”? he asked.

You see – every morning when we stay with them – before 6 am. down he comes.

“Will you walk to the bus stop with me Papa”?

He started a week ago going to actual school twice a week.

Three days at home virtual learning!

Bode – walking to the bus stop with Papa – MorMor and Daddy!

Two sleeps I answered and yes I will walk with you!

” I LOVE YOU PAPA”!

The twins – Cassidy and Taylor – have been in virtual learning the entire time

Making the choice not to go back to school –

They are thriving and doing really well!

Cassidy and Taylor – twins – ten years old – at Taylor’s desk in the basement near our room.

They both are in the basement only in different rooms –

they help each other out – Cassidy will always go to Taylor if she does not understand!

I had no idea what the glasses were for – but was told –

“They are BLUE GLASSES Papa – to protect your eyes from the screen on the chrome book”!

WOW – they look so old in them!

Bode – leading the way to the bus stop – love his back pack!

He told us he liked school – does not know how many are in his class –

Does not know how many boys or how many girls are in his class!

” But Papa , I am the fastest one in my class”!

BODE RUNNING TO THE BUS STOP – I UNDERSTAND WHY HE IS THE FASTEST!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World- journey to University of Lynchburg – grand daughter- soccer!

The start of the game – cold – 35 degrees – steady rain – SOCCER!

We traveled five hours NW to Va. to Lynchburg –

our grand daughters first home contest of the delayed season!

Maddy Myers – number 13 – waiting for the start of the game!

As a Freshmen – she played in 13 games – now a Sophomore –

the first game she had a assist and two near misses in a 2-0 victory!

Out family – father Mike – Mother Debby – sister Ella and grandma – Sherry – Ella will be attending Randolph College in the Fall to play soccer – right across town and will compete against her sister for two years!
Hard to see but she is in the middle far side above the Y about to pass the ball!

She carries a HIGH GPA – and as a Sophomore – because of that GPA –

was able to have a room in the buildings right behind her!

She is a determined young lady – her last two years of travel –

she drove herself 65 miles each way so she could compete with the best in the

Metro D.C area in Loudoun County – a hot bed of recruiting for college soccer.

Steady rain – but we stayed watching her and the game.

The entire team waiting for the start of the game in the cold and rain!

Near the end of the game – a 4 to 1 victory and 2 – 0 on the young season!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World
