As usual our city impresses me so much. Yes, the store owners have boarded up their windows. However, they have decorated their boards with love and support. I took photos as I drove through downtown, and there were many store owners on ladders painting pictures on the boards. It is an amazing sight. I hope to get back down today or tomorrow and take more pictures. One store painted "LOVE IS NOT CANCELLED" on their wall.
In what seems like another world, we finished our last week of school. Anne is done with 11th grade and Dean is graduating from high school today. I will be posting all the fun we plan to have for his graduation in a few days. We went on a marvelous end of the year field trip to Grandfather's Mountain. What a breath of fresh air, literally and figuratively! We packed a picnic lunch and enjoyed lunch at Split Rock.

We then moved on to their tiny zoo. It was filled with local animals who are injured in some way and can't live in the wild any longer.
