Christmas Pictures November 14, 2011

Back in November, the 14th to be exact we went out to The Old Sheldon Church Ruins between Yemassee and Beaufort. Here is a little history on the location (Prince Williams Parish Church (Sheldon) was built between 1745 and 1755 on land donated by Edmund Bellinger. The name Sheldon was used to honor the Bull Family who had a plantation nearby and thier ancestral home in Warwickshire, England were called Sheldon Hall

Arms and ammunition were hidden in the Bull family vault during the American Revolution, and Continental troops drilled on the church grounds. Sheldon Church was burned by General Augustine Prevost's British troops in May 1779The church was rebuilt in 1826 and was given the name of Sheldon Church of Prince William's Parish. Sherman's 15th corps under General John Logan burned Sheldon Church on Jan. 14, 1865. This was considered as part of Sherman's march to the sea.)

Jacob's last graduation November 3rd & 4th, 2011

On November 4, 2011 after another cycle down, it was time for graduation! Jacob graduated another class of Marines. The proud Marines of platoon 2091! At the time of graduation we had no idea it would be his last. We had been patiently waiting on the message to come out on if he had been accepted into the MECEP program. I was so glad to have my Mom and sister there to celebrate with us!!! We got up early and went to the motivational run, enjoyed a fun family day and then went to graduation on Friday, which might I add was the COLDEST day in Beaufort!!!
