We Love Weekends!

Dear Reader:

You see how I am purposefully not mentioning that today is Friday the 13th…I think we have had enough “crazies” this week… yet we have all hung together and had a great time!

The children get to ride the bus home early on Fridays and I can stand on the corner and wait for them…a lot of fun for grandmothers who plan special after-school treats for making it through the school week!

There is a lot for the children to look forward to this weekend 1) Dad is coming home!!! 2) Jake has his first soccer game and 3) Mandy is taking both children to a fun birthday party after the game. I have planned my departure at that time so the kids’ minds will be on the party and not on Boo Boo leaving.

The week was sometimes busy and somewhat tiring when one is not used to as much activity living alone…but still I had my down time too while everyone was at school…Tigger and I had nice walks and plenty of time to just enjoy the warm weather and beautiful surroundings…even do a little shopping.

It is always good to be back in one’s own bed…but still it will take some time to acclimate to the quietness again…I will miss the nightly  ritual…”I love you Boo Boo.” Nothing can take the place of that…nothing.

So until tomorrow…

About Becky Dingle

I was born a Tarheel but ended up a Sandlapper. My grandparents were cotton farmers in Laurens, South Carolina and it was in my grandmother’s house that my love of storytelling began beside an old Franklin stove. When I graduated from Laurens High School, I attended Erskine College (Due West of what?) and would later get my Masters Degree in Education/Social Studies from Charleston Southern. I am presently an adjunct professor/clinical supervisor at CSU and have also taught at the College of Charleston. For 28 years I taught Social Studies through storytelling. My philosophy matched Rudyard Kipling’s quote: “If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” Today I still spread this message through workshops and presentations throughout the state. The secret of success in teaching social studies is always in the story. I want to keep learning and being surprised by life…it is the greatest teacher. Like Kermit said, “When you’re green you grow, when you’re ripe you rot.”
