Joe and mom made cornhusk dolls at the Great Smokey Mountains Visitor Center. It was one of the Junior Ranger activities Joe could to do to get his badge. Mom was more than happy to help. She hadn’t made or played with a doll in years!

While in NC, we visited David, who will be at the Brevard Music Center for most of the summer playing bassoon in the orchestras. As part of a scholarship, he gets work study pay of about $220 for “working” (which includes eating a couple bananas and pointing cars where to go). Tonight the hardest part of the job was pointing cars around a stopped bus that was dropping off people. This is his idea of “hard work”.
