Craft Night

For our activity tonight the Young Women did one of the crafts that the stake had for them at camp. Because of a unforseen problem the girls had to leave camp early and this was one of the things that they would have had the chance to do there. They really enjoyed painting their boards and putting the vinyl letters on. After spraying them with an acrylic sealer they picked out some ribbon and had a finished project to take home!

Summer is coming to a close.

Although we will continue to come to the beach as often as possible we may not be as willing to get in the water when it cools next month. So to say good by to SUMMER and welcome to AUTUMN we spent some extra time at the beach!

Darren and Nick catching a small wave. There where much better.

Kick ball

Our combined activity was kick ball and the field was dry enough to play despite the rain over the weekend. We enjoyed having a special visitor from OK.

A good friend of mine told me that she always made cookies when it was stormy and they called them storm cookies. Thank you Alice for the best idea ever. So to this day when it gets really stormy I usually make storm cookies. Being as we were predicted to be hit by Hanna or at least have some of the wind and rain. I decided to bake muffins so we would have something good to eat the morning after.

Our Stake President received a few phone calls from church headquarters in SLC and was advised to cancel all of the Saturday mtg's for Stake conference. They said that they were ready with supplies on there way to the area. I love how the Organized the Priesthood is all the way down to the Home Teachers who made sure that they knew if their families were staying or leaving and getting their reports back to the Bishop. Darren volunteered to go help if help was needed after Hanna passed. All we ended up getting was a nice heavy rain for the night. Hanna moved north before coming inland.

How do you prepare for a possible HuRRiCaNe?

Hanna seems to be heading our direction so we are taking a few precautions. We have 20 gallons of water on hand but we decided to add 10 more. Darren also filled our propane tanks for the BBQ and purchased some supplies to build covers for the front and back porches that have a tendance to leek when it rains sideways. He also trimmed up some trees and Nick mowed the lawn. It was an beautiful day so when the work was done we took off for the Golf course:) We have a few day's anyway!
(Lots of Pictures)

The work is done now we can play!

Beautiful Marshes of the low country.
