We don't have to look far in this world to see that there are some serious problems with where we're headed. As a teacher, I see these problems starting early, and I know the kids don't get that way on their own. Andy and I don't have all the answers about parenting or about creating a nation of citizens who care for others, but I like to think we are headed in the right direction. C asked to visit Fort Moultrie for his 5th birthday gift. He earned a Jr. Ranger badge there and at the Pinckney Plantation, but what touched me the most was seeing his interest in the Medal of Honor recipients at Yorktown- it is never too early to teach our children compassion, empathy and respect.
☀️ It’s a beautiful day in MTP! ☀️ And so the perfect time to discover southern history and nature all at once. Who’s visited the Charles Pinckney National Historic Site 🌾? Once a rice and indigo plantation, the famous governor’s former home is the perfect MTP site for a warm and relaxing day. ✨

The replica cenotaph that Charles Pinckney ordered for his father's grave now sits on the grounds of the Charles Pinckney NHS. It reads: ⚰️
What is grandeur! what is power! Heavier toil! superior plan!
What the bright reward of gain? The grateful memory of the good Sweet is the breath of vernal show’rs The bees collected treasure sweet, Sweet Music’s folk but sweeter yet. The still small voice of GRATITUDE The generous spark, for ever live, Teach me to Love, and to forgive, Exact my own defects to scan, What others are to feel and know my son A MAN.

We stumbled upon this beautiful farm while exploring the countryside of South Carolina. Trees of all kinds, centuries old, covered the grounds; but on a certain magnolia tree, there stood a single blossom in all its glory. What a simple yet wonderful reminder that God makes everything beautiful in its time, and YOU will have your time. It will be yours alone, and you will bloom into a magnificent display of God's faithfulness and promises. ❤️
