When we were in Mississippi we made use of the miles of sidewalks on the Ole Miss campus to stretch Katherine’s legs and enjoy the pristine environment. They keep things tidy at Ole Miss, which was particularly jarring since this time we were coming from the “ancient” city of Oxford, and a house in which no surfaces are level.
The weather was a bit iffy in the South, with thunderstorms every time we thought of swimming or taking Katherine outside. But it also kept things a bit cooler than we had feared, so we were grateful. Katherine got to spend lots of time coloring and trying out her new scissors and markers, and I’m not sure whether she or Grandma and Grandpa Birdsong enjoyed it more.
