    We want to know how you are spending your days during the recommended period of ‘social distancing!’

    Send your pictures and captions to Graham@MagicValleyPublishing.Com and we will make sure to post them.

    PICTURED: Scarlett Rhodes, 6, of Collierville and her horses Cheeto (left) and Marty (right) spent a muddy day on March 18 practicing social distancing.

    PICTURED: Jillian, 7, draws a rainbow leading to the pot of gold while celebrating St. Patty’s day with mom, Jamie.

    PICTURED: This is us enjoying the fresh air during our walk on Shelby Drive here in Collierville yesterday. Fresh air sure does a body good during this chaotic time we are lining through! In the picture left to right: Kayla, Avery, Madison and Andrew Rice with dogs, Ruby and Husker.
    Stay healthy and Sane!
    Blessings

    PICTURED: Local fifth grader Cooper Lockhart (blue bathing suit) and third grader Cameron Lockhart (blue shirt) offered to wash their mother’s car for a hefty $2 each. “They said they had so much fun that they didn’t care if I paid them or not,” said mom Candace Lockhart. “Of course, I did.”
    Both young entrepreneurs go to CES.

    PICTURED: Ally Beth Adams, 11, holds her 6-week-old cousin Ellis Adams for the first time and loves it. Holding a newborn baby makes us forget about all the sadness around us and reminds us of God’s blessings.

    PICTURED: The Toussaint girls of Collierville work on a project that benefits the homeless. Self distancing ourselves doesn’t mean forgetting about those with unfathomable hardships. Those that are truly suffering among us often have a cold sidewalk or damp ground to lay on. 
    Making ‘plarn’ (plastic bag yarn) to be crocheted into sleeping mats is a way to reuse a resource that gets discarded. 
    My mother and her women’s group over in Arkansas gather together and crochet the mats. I’ve never been a good crocheter but I can put my hands and the hands of my four daughters to use to make the ‘plarn!’
