Sharing The High Life

Holland, Brian, Meagan and Remington Harris submitted photo
No one understands the importance of family time quite like the Harris family. For Holland Harris and her late husband Brian, what started out as a place for their family to enjoy each other turned into a business that allows space for other families to spend time together. … In 2014, the Harris family longed for a quiet place to gather. A childhood friend of Brian’s informed them of some land in Glenwood, Arkansas, along the Caddo River that was for sale. Holland recalls the first time they visited the area and how hard it was for her to see what this area might develop into.

2022 is the Year!

I am a slob. My room is like a maze. That’s why I decided to change for my new year’s resolution. My room will sparkle more than a light bulb. Once I’m done, my room will gleam like a butterfly. I’ll get Clorox wipes to wipe the room, then I will use Febreze spray to make it smell nice. … I am an A/B Honor Roll student. I want to make A Honor Roll in the future. I will have to concentrate more than usual. If I reach my goal, I will be beyond average. … My sister and I don’t really do anything around the house. I will dedicate myself to completing chores around the house.

2022 is the Year!

My resolution for 2022 is to get better at memorizing and reciting Bible verses. I chose this resolution because it might come in handy for conflicts in the future. For example, if someone is in a fight or lost, reciting a Bible verse might help save the day. A Bible verse could also cheer someone up or cheer yourself up. … One way I can work on my resolution is to set a goal that every other day I study at least five verses for ten minutes. If I do this process throughout the year I guarantee I will know more Bible verses than I did before.

What About The Paper Palace?

Baby, it’s cold outside! I guess that all depends on what day you are reading this, as we could be experiencing a wintry mix or, instead, be outside soaking up that January sun. Either way, are we the only family still blaring Christmas music? I’m hopeful the tunes streaming from our Alexa will summon mother nature to get cold and stay cold for a minute.

For the Love of Books

I love to read. I always have. I love to read so much that I actually remember learning how to read. Mrs. Jan Cure Clayton was my first-grade teacher, and she was also my Daddy’s first cousin. (In Atlanta, Texas, it is a real possibility that you are going to be related to one of your teachers along the way.) Anyway, I can remember the other first graders in my reading group and how Mrs. Jan would stand at the board teaching us phonics. It opened a whole new world for me.

2022 is the Year!

Goodness gracious! It’s already the New Year! Do you have a New Year’s resolution? Well, I do. My resolution is to improve my level 7 gymnastics routines. That will help me be more confident in competitions. If I am confident, competitions will be a piece of cake! … To perfect my routines, I will not count them if I fall on the beam. I will run really fast and explode off the vault table, and I will make sure my body line and my knees are as straight as a board when I swing bars. When I do my dance, I will make my motions bigger and use more expression.

My Human

“Are you a cat person or a dog person?” I’m pretty sure I’ve been asked this question countless times during my lifetime, even more so since finding myself back in the world of dating over ten years ago. However, never once have I been asked if I was a raccoon person. Little did I know that back in April of 2020, a raccoon had chosen me to be her “human.” It was at this moment, my face became a permanent imprint on Rocky (my unbeknownst-to-me pet).
