For Marilyn, Part 6

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!

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!

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.

    My dear Kristen and precious Vogel family. I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this “updated blog.” Thank you so much. A lot of time, patience, memory recall, went into this update. I marvel at you Kristen in all the wonderful and precious time spent with the family in so many exciting and memorable outings. The children are so blessed to have you and Joe for their parents. The opportunities these children are given seem endless.
    My goodness Kristen, all I have to do is to mention something to you, and walla, it’s done! I marvel at your God given talents and the talents each of the children possess! What beautiful gifts God has given you and Joe.
    Again, thank you Kristen for this beautiful, updated blog. I am sure it is also appreciated by your followers. May God bless you all abundantly. Love you and miss you,
    Miss Marilyn
