Happy Father’s Day to all our unsung heroes out there! You are our rock and our roll, what would we do without you? Seriously we love you guys and you definitely make our lives richer. My dad taught me many life lessons and I have fond memories of watching him work on our family car or making some repair around the house. My husband is an amazing father to our two girls and is quite the grill master! I cannot believe how blessed I am to have him in my life! He calms me in the storm and constantly makes me laugh. Thanks, Tim, for all you bring to our lives!
In the infamous words of Alice Cooper’s classic song…“School’s out for Summer! No more teachers, no more homework…” for a short time at least! Families and teachers alike rejoice at summer! Yay for no homework or strict bedtimes! Summer is a much-needed and well-deserved break for everyone! Our Summer Camp Showcase ended with the May issue. But for those still lining up summer, we have a couple new camp ads in this month and you can always look at back-issues online.
Our June cover features the Crossnore School & Children’s Home. We met at their Miracle Grounds Farm Store for their photo shoot, and Brett Loftis was the epitome of patience with a little one climbing all over him. I could just feel the love exuding from everyone I came in contact with that day. What a wonderful place we have for those children who need them. The strawberry patch was open that day, so thanks to my husband, I left there not only with a warm heart but a beautiful basket of strawberries to enjoy! I invite you to check out their place, drive through their campus and visit the Farm Store. Perhaps even become a volunteer or make a much-needed donation.
Many thanks to those who joined our Komen team in May! Let summer begin!
