Love One Another…

Dear Reader:

There is no doubt that the Ya’s complete each other… and as we grow older together (and hopefully wiser) in our understanding of the important things in life… we know how fortunate we were that God gave us each other… puzzle pieces to complete this ” game” of life.

This morning Jackson and I will have risen early to get Jackson to the airport to fly home. But no doubt the drive from Edisto to the airport will be filled already with memories from the retreat… especially from the afternoon before when more Erskine friends joined us for our finale gathering.

Donna and Shep
Grandmothers to beautiful adorable sixth grade granddaughters

Let me share other pieces of the sights and sounds experienced over the past week. Memories in the making from the 2023 reunion…

Cleaning up for our drop-in
The Bridge to Paradise and Back to Reality
Brooke and Becky… graduation days
Have to admit feeling a little ” crabby” about good-bye day but soon it will pass replaced by wonderful memories to sustain us until when we meet again!

So until tomorrow…

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.”
