Alyssa on the other hand
And for the baby of the family
Well she is promoting from the eighth grade to high school in just about a week. So technically she is not a baby anymore. Ugh. Just the other night she had her eighth grade promotion dance. Her dad and I were chaperons and boy is it funny to watch the kids. The boys would sit in one corner, and the girls stood in the middle. I just love it. Nobody really ever danced. They would just all stand around and talk, occasionally have a snack or a bottle of water. I love that most of them are still afraid of each other.
It is so hard watching your babies grow up and find their place in the world. We try so hard to teach them what we think they will need to know when they are out on their own including the most important about staying on the path God wants you on and to always look to him for guidance in all times and especially in times when you just don't know what to do. When I came home the other day from work I found this little guy sitting on a pillow on my porch swing.
I am so very, very proud of you three. Thanks for being such wonderful children
Just a little bragging but the kids gave me Easter/Mothers Day/Birthday presents. This is what I got.
Courtney and Mike bought me these. I got these items from JCPenneys. I only spent $17.00 for all the things listed below. I love finding good bargains.
I love me some JCPenneys.
Alyssa gave me this, I wear it everyday.
Ryan gave me these
I am just so lucky. I thank God everyday for the family he has trusted me with. I could not ask for anything more.
