Yvonne Weir reports, “On March 4th Destri Weir came to visit and we went to the play ‘The Marvelous Wonderettes.’ It was Wesley’s first play and he loved the music and disco lights.” On Saturday, Destri and Yvonne went shopping and got pedicures. Robert and Yvonne went to the Special Olympics at Como Pickton on Friday, March 11, to watch Wesley and others compete, and then on Saturday the three of them headed to Rockwall to meet Dacy and her children, Elise and Eli. They were delayed due to a dead battery, but their friends Bruce and Regina Taylor helped them get to Wal-Mart to get a battery. When they arrived at the motel in Rockwall, Elise and Wesley were ready to swim. Yvonne says, “We had a ball! It was Eli’s first swim.” On Sunday, they took Wesley to Chuck E. Cheese and met Destri for lunch. Dustin and Natalie Weir came for a Spring Break visit on Monday.

Donna Durst reports that she had a fun Saturday. Amy and Cooper came from Oklahoma and picked her up. They went to Athens to visit Donna's mom, Jo Hasty, and Donna's sister, Karen Fitzhugh. While they were there, they also got to visit with her niece and her family, Lange and Julie Svehlak and their two children, Kendall and Cason. They also visited with Donna's only aunt and uncle, Janice and Elmo Cunningham, who are also known affectionately as Tiny and Fat. Later, when they returned to Tira, cousins Cooper and Joseph got to visit for awhile.
