Jaidyn Joslin played in her last Little Dribblers game of the season at North Hopkins on Saturday. Chip and I, along with her parents, Malcolm Joslin and Tiffany Vaughn, were there to cheer her on. Jaidyn’s nephews, Rylan, Brailon, and Slaiden spent the afternoon with her and her mom, Tiffany, and they enjoyed getting to play outside. Later that evening, Chip, Tiffany, Jaidyn, and I went to the Fish Fry in Paris, and then did a little shopping after the delicious meal. Chip and I ran into Robert Aiguier and his brother, Bill, at Juan Pablo’s a couple of weeks ago. They are descendants of the family that the Aiguier Cemetery is named for. Robert shared that they had a nice afternoon “out in North Hopkins after lunch that day, just enjoying the dry weather for a change!”
I agree that it’s been nice to see some sunshine the past few days and to see the beauty of the flowering trees!
