It was May and there was a reenactment in Linden, TN. The burning and seizing of the courthouse! Let me tell you, the Cedar Bush Mess put on an incredible show!! There was a tea in the morning and reenactment in the afternoon. That evening there was a ball. I think it’s safe to say we all had an incredible time! The only problem for me was that I had a bad case of poison Oak all over my face. Luckily, I’m not in too many pictures!
The two eldest members of the Confederate Belles with the youngest member…
Vincent and Genevieve slept through the entire battle!!!
Our next big event was Resaca, Georgia for the 150th Anniversary battle. It was pretty soggy and cool, but a good time was had by all. We stayed Friday and Saturday. It turned out that Sunday was rained out. Once again we were with the Cedar Bush Mess.
John, Kevin, and James took part in a documentary filming about Richard Kirkland, the “Angel of Marye’s Heights.” Here are a few pictures from that…
Charlotte had a birthday. She turned 9 years old! Where does the time go? She was our baby when we moved to Tennessee. And, a great big thank you to Aunt Mary Lou!
Next a local rainbow when we were taking a little ride through the cemetery…
They have had a few dances at our local theater and someone took a picture of James and I.
In the summer the children had a wonderful time at Totus Tuus, our local Bible school
Veronica turned 6 …
John was in the play, “Clue, the Musical.” He played Mr. Body.
Then my good friend and her children came to visit us from Minnesota.
Kevin turned 16!!!!
MaryEllen was Confirmed! Praise God!
Kevin painted this flag for his SCV group.
As of right now, Kevin, MaryEllen, Charlotte, and Veronica are rehearsing for “The Little Mermaid” every Saturday, so we have had to miss all the reenactments. Some of us really, really miss them. Also, my camera battery is not any good, so I don’t know how many pictures I’ll be taking. But, Miss Marilyn, I will try to better keep my blog updated. We always enjoy looking back at everything as well.
