My awesome son graduated from high school on Friday night. They had a wonderful graduation ceremony held outside on their high school's football field. The weather was perfect! I can't believe my baby boy is now a high school graduate. Does this mean I'm now officially old????

My Mom and brothers drove in from Arkansas for the big event:

My baby boy. Well, not a baby anymore. He's taller than his Momma! Where did the time go???

We hosted a small family cookout for him here at the house on Saturday. I was so busy preparing food and drinks that I didn't get a chance to take any pictures! He received a lot of monetary gifts, which he loved!! Everyone had a great time. Now he just has to figure out what direction to take his life in next. There are just so many choices! I hope he makes the right ones. My mother and brothers left to go back home this morning. I've mostly been resting all day. I forgot how worn out having a house full of family for three nights can be! It's been a bittersweet weekend, that's for sure. But life is all about changes, so even though this door and chapter is closed in my son's life now, a new one is opening for us all. And we will walk through it confidently and with hearts full of hope that the future holds only great things for us.

Until next time. . .
