Our weekend trip to Charleston

A little over a year after JJ had open heart surgery, he ran the Cooper River Bridge 10K in Charleston with impressive results.

Cailee’s first track meet

Figured we would start her thinking scholarship at an early age – given how active she has already proven to be. And of course – NC State was the only option, well we might be a little divided in our household – but thankfully – as you can tell by her attire – Cailee’s not…

I can’t quite do it on my own…
