Jon and Jess

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I think this one speaks volumes.
You can see the joy on their faces!


This pretty much sums up what I think about having my fourth and fifth children graduate from high school. There were fireworks at the end of the ceremony. It was amazing to say the least!

Jordan made it home yesterday!!! We're all so happy to see him, even the pups! I cooked dinner for them tonight. I'm a little rusty but the dinner turned out good.
A friend and her family gave me a birthday present yesterday that I will treasure forever. It's a picture that says, "My blessings call me Mom." It speaks such truth in my life. My children are such a blessing to me.

I Want To Ride My Bicycle!

I have been contemplating buying a bicycle. There is a turquoise one at BJ's that I have my eye on but it's not in my budget. Also Jordan said a bike might be something I ride one time and never again. (He must have heard this speech from his mother!!)

Well low and behold on my way home from work today I spotted a bike at the flea market in Jenkinsburg (they have it every Thursday thru Friday if you are interested). It was only $20 and that was in my budget. I took a spin on it right there in the flea market parking lot , to the old man's amazement! I did not pop the tires so I thought it okay this is a deal. I put my top down and he put it in the back and I brought it home.

The kids and I had a blast on it!!! I'll keep you updated on if Jordan's theory was right.

Yesterday was the baccalaureate service/ceremony for my twins, Jonathan and Jessica. It is such a bittersweet time for me with my babies graduating from high school. I am so very proud of them!!
