Dreams and a Future

We have a graduate!!

Our oldest graduated (he is in the sea of the white and black cap and gowns).  It's been a long road...one I was worried about, but saw a young boy grow up to be a young man!

Last December, he mad the decision to go into the Army Reserves...wow!  What an emotional roller coaster ride it has been since the moment he signed those papers...and we are still going!!

During the ceremony, the moment that caught me (even though I knew it was coming) was when they asked all those going into the military to stand up and be recognized...when a handful of them stood, I knew my son was among those 10 (or so) that stood!  My breath caught and I choked back a few tears!  I'm so proud of him!  He has made a decision that will change his life forever!


So as we venture into the next phase of his journey, please pray for us...he leaves on July 13th!
