Young Harris College

Friday morning, we headed up to the mountains to Young Harris College.  This school is so very dear to our hearts.  It's where Bryce and I met, where he proposed, where our children were christened and where Harris gets his name!  It was alumni weekend so we were able to visit with some friends and see what's new to the school.  Most importantly, we were able to show Harris and Grace this beloved place!

We got to visit with Brian and meet one of his adorable children.  Bryce, Thad and Brian were roommates at The University of Georgia.  The times we had with these guys make me smile just thinking about them. 

Patty and I went to school together and later ended up teaching together!

We also got to watch a YHC baseball game, which made Harris happy!

One of the best parts of our weekend was spending time with Thad and his lovely family. We met them for dinner on Friday evening and then spent Saturday evening (after an alumni party) with them and our good friend Patty.  The children had a rare evening of running around the hotel (yes, we were "those" parents), and playing in the arcade until late at night while the adults caught up on life.  It's truly the stuff memories are made of.

 (FYI, this photo was taken at midnight!)

We stayed at Brasstown Valley Resort and certainly enjoyed the amenities and scenery.


  1. Really great photos! I miss you guys a lot BTW. Wish we had been at home during this visit, we would have some how bribed you to make the 4 hour drive to the beach house! I think it would have rounded off your trip well. Hope you are watching Facebook, I have posted more photos in the past week, than the past year. I feel pretty dumb that I didn't remember where Harris got his name. . . Duh
    Hope you guys might think of visiting during the summer.

  2. I love that you name Harris after the college where you met! That is really cool.

  3. Love the photos!
    How cool for Harris to be named after the college that you guys met! Love it!

  4. It was wonderful to see y'all! Wish we had more time to visit, but hope to see y'all again soon!
