Chasing Waterfalls-the Good Kind

Dear Reader:

Yesterday was nature day… a most beautiful one! Tommy, Kaitlyn and little Pip and Atticus ( the dogs) and I went chasing waterfalls.

The only treacherous part was holding on to the bannister down stone steps where ice was slowly turning to water. And there were beautiful icicles everywhere!

Here are some pictures – the kind you takes for lots of lasting memories !! Oops-no waterfall but Pip is fired up for Clemson!

Of course … once you go down… that means you have to climb back up! I was huffing and puffing-but did it!!!

So until tomorrow… the game is on… will be back tomorrow and back on track. Crazy WiFi up here in the mountains!

Today is my favorite day! Winnie the Pooh

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.”
