Has it really been almost a month since I last posted?
I'll try to spare you of the thousands of words that have been stockpiling in my little brain.
Maybe it's all the words bumping into each other that has caused all my headaches lately!
Well, I had another birthday - 45 is the official count, but I'm telling everyone I'm 39.
(I'll blame my forgetfulness on my kids).
That means I've been a mom for 18 years and Oldest Graduated on May 20th with Honors from high school. So it rained and all those people who planned on attending
couldn't because it was held inside. We were only given 5 tickets per student, but
everyone else was able to watch it live via the internet from the comfort of their homes.
I didn't cry, but bit my lip quite a bit.
Each student (at church) graduating this year was encouraged to put together a small display that represents their life - We had Oldest handle this and we had to laugh when we saw it. I loved the "Who I am" paper he wrote in 2nd grade: Ambulance Driver, police man, and his best friend was a girl. I'm starting to see he gets his goofy side from both Honey and myself.
See that HUGE trophy on the right? The band won close to 30 awards in a short 3 weeks, and since we go to church with FOUR rival band directors, Oldest wanted to include it. Their band is most unique because their band has not had a drum major in 4 years - the only band in Arkansas to do this!!!
