So last weekend was spent in Charleston for Reece to take part in the SC Elementary Honors Choir Program. We arrived on Thursday and he rehearsed Thursday afternoon/evening, Friday all day (with time off for lunch), and then the performance was Saturday morning. Can I just tell you how amazed I was at the talent these children exhibited? Reece, Mark, Amaris and Selah were 4 of the 243 students from all over SC who auditioned and made the choir. This picture was taken at one of the rehearsals. Their music teacher, Donna Barrick, worked with them twice a week for 3 months to learn 8 songs and on Saturday, all the hard work paid off! The sound of these children’s voices was astonishing! I know I had tears more than once during the songs.
The weekend was lots of hard work, but the kids got to have fun too! We ate at Bubba Gumps on the Market with everyone Friday night so the kids loved that. It was nice to watch them enjoy themselves after all of the sitting still that they did the previous two days. Amaris’s little brother Joe was there so Logan had fun clowning with him at dinner too! What a fun time we all had!
Our grown up Madison (we have little Madison friends and a big Madison friend!) is finishing up her senior year at Charleston Southern University so she joined us on Saturday morning. Rhett’s parents also made the trip down on Friday to spend the weekend with us so Reece was not hurting for a Fan Club at all!! Reece,Amaris, Selah and Mark all did a phenomenal job and I hope that we get to be a part of this special weekend again in the future…maybe even with Garett Bug! Who knows?!
The rest of the weekend was spent playing! We went to the noisy Oyster Saturday for lunch(where Reece was so tired he fell asleep immediately after eating!) and then walked around the Market and King Street. Sunday found us at Folly Beach to look for seashells and then on the pier at Locklear’s for lunch.
Rhett and I renewed our vows on Folly and had brunch with our wedding guests at Locklear’s February 28th of last year so Folly holds a special place in out hearts. You can read all about it here!
Thank you Reece for giving us a reason to go to Charleston! We had a great weekend!
Until Next Time, I’m Fondly Yours,
Queen of The Charleston Going Browns
