A Winning Team

By Karin Calloway   I’m not a competitive person. Ask anyone who knows me well and they’ll agree. If you say, “I bet I can beat you at…” my response will most likely be a big “high five, you win,” even before the competition begins. But, as much as I’m not competitive, I’m a zealous team player. I find it exhilarating to be part of a team, to brainstorm ways to do things better, to make big plans for future goals. The team-player side of me trumped the non-competitive side in mid-April, when the Parenting Media Association held its annual...

By Karin Calloway   My parents, Paul and Carol Gage of Evans, have five grandchildren ranging in age from 3 to 24. As mother of two of these awesome kids and aunt to three, I’ve come up with a theory as I’ve watched them go from infant to adult.

By Karin Calloway   This is the first issue since the New Year, and I’m happy to tell you that there’s a whole lot of “new” in this issue of Augusta Family Magazine. You may have already clued into that fact when you picked up this issue of the magazine. While I promised some tweaking of the design of the magazine in my December/January column, once we got started we just couldn’t stop! This new work of art you hold in your hands (or are enjoying digitally) has been completely overhauled by Creative Director Shirley Bass.  We’re also welcoming a...

Milestones

By Karin Calloway   I have a baby book for both of my children that highlights milestones—their first steps, first words and so much more. They’re young adults now, but the milestones haven’t stopped. The photo above depicts a milestone for our daughter, CC, as she was presented as a debutante during the 51st Augusta Symphony Guild Cotillion last November. Yes, our artsy tomboy is also a debutante. It was a special night for the families of the 27 young ladies who were presented and also a wonderful fundraiser for Symphony Orchestra Augusta. Our son, Tripp, has a big milestone...
