Our Youngest Has Graduated...In A Whole New Way

Of our six kids, the last one has graduated high school.  Emma Nicole had quite the year, with this quarantine and all.  She didn't get to celebrate her last day of school, prom, or senior trip.  And her graduation was one for the books.  But, she's taken it well for the most part and is ready for the next chapter of her life.  She will be starting at a local community college in the fall to get credentials to be a Vet Tech.

Rather than a regular graduation ceremony, Emma was allowed only six people to attend.  She was given a time slot of 9:30 AM to walk across the gym floor while her people cheered her on.  We had to wear masks during the ceremony (minus her and her mom) but was able to take them off for pics.  It was pretty short and simple, but definitely memorable.

Heck Of A Mother's Day 2020



Another Mother's Day on the books!  I had a really good one this year, minus not being able to see all the kids.  Hope you were able to enjoy your day as well.

The evening before, while at a friend's house, Jason and JJ surprised me and Tasha with brand new kayaks.  Now we're just waiting on the weather to get nicer so we can row on water instead of land.  I've never been before, so any tips from those that have would be great.




On the actual day of, Logan and Shelby came over to visit and give gifts.  Shelby got me some makeup primer, and Logan purchased me a card with $15 Starbucks gift card.  I also received a package in the mail from Adam with a wooden angel sign and $25 Texas Roadhouse gift card.  Logan and Allyson also made me strawberry Jell-O cake (one of my faves!)





Me, Logan and Shelby stopped by Dairy Queen drive-thru and ordered my mom's favorite meal, Chicken Strip Baskets.  We stopped by her grave and "had lunch" with her.

I'm blessed to be a mother to a blended family of six kids.  We haven't been perfect parents but our kids have grown into pretty great young adults.
