Let me tell you about my grandkids: from Mema

2009-04-25 - Shelbyville, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener, Campbellsville University photo.
"AT THE INSISTENCE OF EVAN WAGGENER, Linda Waggener notes, "I got to see one of his and Graham's stellar soccer performances in Shelbyville." Above, Evan and his father, Pen, a Little League Soccer Coach in Shelbyville, KY, were attentive to the photographer, but Graham and his mother Amy Waggener had, we believe, contrails to watch in the sky over the soccer field. Both boys were the best on the field, and won, Mema is sure--though no scores are kept.
