Well, we survived the graduation ceremony...barely. It was 95 degrees outside and even hotter in the high school gym! Oh, I was so proud of my son! And his friends and all of the great choices they have made! I was proud of the people who showed up to love on him! And, I don't have any pictures to show you because Shannon K. has not emailed them to me yet - HINT HINT!
Cody's party is this Saturday, so this week we will work on his picture displays, dust off his trophies, and I will dig out the Barney videos and Power Rangers stuff I saved all these years for this special day!
If I have learned anything about raising kids these past 18 years it is this: Really get to know your children. Never say, "What do you want now?" to them. Love them unconditionally, even when they spill red Kool-aid on your white carpet. Love their friends. Open your home. Break the cycle of the past and vow to be a better parent. Attend as many of their events as you can. Love them some more.
I could go on writing forever...but my big comfy bed is calling my name!
I vow to blog more often - and post pictures soon. SHANNON! lol
