Busy (with family) lately

I've been really busy lately.  This is just a bit of what's been going on.  Hubby's 50th Birthday party (no pictures, aren't you glad) was the end of April.  Youngest son is graduating this weekend, so, Awards night was at his school.  He received some awards, but, the most special award to him was that the Student Services Department selected him to receive their award for the year.

Both of my sons have worked in the Student Services department during their Senior years.  Connor will have his picture in the plaque for the next school year.  The tassels around his neck are from Mu Alpha Theta, the math society group.  Connor finished both parts of Calculus during his Junior year.  Wow!  I can barely spell Calculus.  He got his math abilities from hubby, not mommy.

Connor is a super active young man.  He is in Venturing (don't get me started on how many offices he's held or currently holds), but, most importantly, Connor is very active in our church.  He is on the Worship team, and helps out in many other areas, too.  This past Sunday, he was in the church musical.  He played Simon, a blind man.  He was also the co-director of the actors.

I'm very proud of my son, can you tell?  I'm lucky to have two wonderful boys.  It'll be an empty nest here, shortly. 


  1. Awesome!

    Not the empty nest part. I'm struggling with that myself. I have one in college and two in high school. I am both excited that they are growing in to fine young men and sad that my boys are not my little boys any more.

  2. Congrats. You should be very proud of your sons. Empty nest is great. So enjoy your sons as long as you can and then enjoy the empty nest.

  3. Bravo for such wonderful sons! We're enjoying our empty nest, but enjoy spending time with our kids - we're up to 7 now as 3 of the 4 are married!


  4. I feel like I have an empty nest just because my youngest is at the local high school instead of being home schooled. It's odd to have the house to quiet. Not bad, just different. When I am a true empty nester, now that will be an adjustment.

    You have much to be proud of!!
