The Scooters

The nearby city of Harrisonburg has put electric scooters all around the downtown area, and the outskirts of it. They have become a hit! But now, some people do NOT like it! There is a petition to get rid of them. Why?

The scooters can go up to 20 M.P.H., and riders are not following the rules. They ride them on sidewalks, run red lights and stop signs in the streets, & park them sideways on the sidewalks, blocking the way. Would you sign this petition? If not, what should be done?

The Grass

Ornamental fall grass is always so pretty, and makes a big statement. There are lots around here.

“The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.”

Our Anne Marie has been in gymnastics for years. She is good at it, and has won a few medals. Now she is in the state championships every year!

She has her own floor show, with music she picked out.

Some of the things she does scare me! They look dangerous, but she is always in complete control. This weekend, she medaled again.

The girls were biting their medals  to see if they were solid!

I love to see how close these girls are, how they support each other and cheer each other on.

The alphabet in gymnastics. Each letter is a girl in a different position.

Most of these pictures were taken by Anne Marie's mom.

Sunday Silver

The silver Maples are beautiful now! They do really shine like silver when the sun is out.

“Better than bars of molten silver”
 — the silver of a laugh.
