4. I don't have a picture yet but they already make me happy....the TWINS!!! (36 weeks tomorrow, wish they would hurry up and get here)
5. My family and Mark's family, they are always here for us. We are so blessed!
I know there are many people that live in "small towns" that are way smaller than Jackson but everybody knows everybody in Jackson. It's a welcoming place, a wonderful place to call your hometown. You can't go into WalMart, the main store, without seeing someone you know. (which could be good or bad, LOL) As for chain stores, there is a WalMart, Country Mart (I don't actually know if that's a chain), and a Rhodes gas station. Though it doesn't sound like a lot there are tons of local things to do. :)
A local restaurant: Tractors Bar & Grill (can't find a picture) :(
The train station
A public golf course: Bent Creek
A Country Club: Kimbeland Country Club
-My place of employment, I was the manager of the pool during the summer. Man, how I miss those days!
Many schools, including the "One and Only: Jackson High School"
The school is made up of many buildings but recently has undergone remodeling. This picture is what it looked like when I was there almost 6 years ago. :( Home of the Jackson Indians, it's somewhat like Friday Night Lights. The town pretty much shuts down for J-town football games on Fridays. Everyone of all ages attend, people have season tickets that they have had for years. The marching band plays every Friday night...the announcer has been the same for years..."that's another Jackson Indian first down!"
Some people call the children in Jackson "boomerang kids." Meaning...they all rush away after high school to try to get out of town but most find their way back. :) The pride runs deep.
After we had lunch and spent some time together throughout the afternoon it was time to get ready for my brothers Baccalaureate.
