First day of High School

Eeeeek! My baby started High School today!

Have you ever read the book Love You Forever?

I read it to Stephen often when he was a little fella. Every mom should read this to her little boy. Because they will always be our little boys...even when the day comes for THEM to rock US!

Remember When Wednesday...take 11

Today I am remembering Chickfest 2010!
Today I am wishing for another gathering of these wonderful women (plus several who couldn't make the first trip!)
Today I am missing ALL of my chicks.
Love and God's Blessings to each of you!

What are you remembering and/or missing today?

Remember When Wednesday...take 10

In 2004, Stephen was in first grade. It REALLY does seem like yesterday. From age of 4 to about 8 or 9, Stephen was set on being a police officer when he grew up.  So naturally, when his class was studying community workers and got to dress up as their favorite, he chose to be a policeman.

Oh my you see his little handcuffs hanging out of his pocket. HA!
(and yes, his feet really were THAT big! Pre-cursor to the 14 or 15 size he wears now!)

I'm pretty certain he was the cutest policeman there that day!

 You agree, don't you? ;)

Remember When Wednesday...take 9

In honor of the beginning of football two-a-days, I thought I'd look back at the beginning for Ste. He started playing flag football in 1st grade. He's always been a Pirate!  Virgil and I used to crack up watching these little boys on the football field and now they've grown into young men. Looking forward to watching them the next four years in High School ball!

A Rare First

As Stephen grows older, our firsts with him are becoming fewer and further in between. Our son starts high school in a few short weeks. That makes me excited, nervous, sad and happy all at the same time.  Seriously, I'm a mess! :)
This week we had a new "first." Stephen's first day of High School Football practice.
It won't be long until we will be enjoying football games and band performances on cool autumn evenings.
Well, it will be cool..... Eventually!

Remember When Wednesday...take 8

Dad and Mom have been gone for  4 1/2 and almost 3 years respectively. I miss them and the everyday knowing they are just a phone call or 15 minutes away.
 I love looking at the photos of when they were just starting out. They were married just shy of 51 years when Daddy passed away. And the heritage of their love lives on in me and my siblings and our families.
I'm blessed to have had them with me on earth for so long and I will be blessed to rejoice with them in heaven.

Share what you are remembering today...
