Time Off at Givhans Ferry

Because we weren’t booked anywhere for Easter and didn’t want to take up any extra parking spaces at the church where we sang for Good Friday, we camped out at Givhans Ferry State Park for a few days.

We took a few days off of school and had a forced work break because there was no internet or cell signal.

We did a lot of nothing in particular, including thawing,
