Ben’s big brother and his family are out of school for the week for Mardi Gras so we spent today with them, hanging around Laurel and the Mercantile then we followed them south to Hattiesburg on their way back home for dinner at Tabella. We only have days like these spent with Sam, Lyn, and the kids once in a blue moon and they’re always some of my favorite times with them.
Ellie has asked to be a checkout girl at the Mercantile for her spring break in a few weeks, which I’m tickled to death about. Today she followed some customers around the shop offering some ideas on products they might like. I think she’s hired!
