He’s Graduated!!

I’m so proud of my son.  He received his Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry today.

 I was able to get a few pictures afterwards.  

I love this picture of Josh and David laughing together over something they were talking about.

making the “stoic” face   🙂

Then I took this one, which Josh very rarely takes a picture seriously and will make a face.  🙂

I will say though, during the commencement he behaved and let the photographers take his picture without making a face.

giving the “raised eyebrow” face.  🙂

Then David took this picture for me.   As you can see, I’m a proud mom.  🙂

David and I enjoyed lunch with our son, before he took off to spend the rest of the day with friends.

Audre didn’t get to attend Josh’s graduation as she had a band competition and field trip today.  She had a good time and the band did very well.  If I understand it correctly they brought home a huge trophy.  Audre was so tired when she got home this evening it was hard to get much information out of her. 🙂

Since David and I had the afternoon free and it was a beautiful day, we decided to play a round of Put-Put golf.   Here’s our score card.   The first half of the first nine, did me in.  I’m using the excuse that I had to adjust to playing in heels.  :0)   But considering that, I’m happy with my score.  I scored one over Amateur Par.  David however, as usual, did much better.  He scored Pro Par.  :0)

I’ve been seeing these wild flowers on the side of the road.  So today, on the way home I asked David to pull over so that I could take a picture.  They start out a darker pink then fade to a lighter pink, then white, as they age.   I think they are pretty.

Before I sign off, I have a prayer request.

My nephew Sam was injured in football practice this week.  I learned yesterday he has a tear in his spleen. He is in a lot of pain and in the hospital.  They are keeping a close eye on him, as he may have to have surgery.  Last night he had been give three pints of blood, but I have just now read that he is doing better and may get to be release from the hospital tomorrow.  Please remember him in your prayers.

Until next time,
God bless and keep you,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
