College? Already? Are you sure you have the right child? He isn’t 18 yet…is he? Baseball    This sweet little boy will be leaving for his new home in just under two weeks. Love Laughter Life  He was only 10 last week, I’m sure of it. Playing with his younger brother at the park or trying to get Dad with waterfight the Super Soaker! Who told him he could grow up?

I don’t remember giving him permission.

And yet he grew. He is taller. He is smarter. He is older! 

1038 Shock has slowly turned to acceptance…but that doesn’t mean I have to like it.

I’m still not sure where the time went or when he grew up, but I am proud of the young man he is becoming. He is smart and knows what he wants. He set his expectations high and has a plan to make his dreams a reality. Salt Lake City is not around the corner, but it’s a beautiful city to visit and this tall green-eyed boy is worth every mile driven on the road to get there. He will do great at Neumont University. He will do great PERIOD.

March Madness

No, I am not referring to college basketball. More like the crazy snow storm that blasted it’s way from the South through the Mid-West to the shoreline of the East Coast. 

My siblings and I swap morning messages with our mom every day – usually it’s a few words of kindness.

This morning, however, instead of words, we shared our morning views…


From DFW Texas to the New Jersey shore…

And Southern Indiana….don’t think it skipped any of the family. 

But the scenary is pretty!
