|Wow! What a month. I am finally sitting down to catch my breath. May has been so crazy busy. I don't think I realized how much goes on during graduation month ha!|
We enjoyed some nice weather at the beginning of the month so we have been taking advantage of the Crafton College pool and swimming some laps. Here is my mermaid also known as our newest high school freshman. Dan looked at me the other day and said"How are we old enough to have a freshman in high school and one in college?" I said I have no idea.
|Trinity Church's Women's Ministry put on a Mother-Daughter tea for all the seniors and their mamas. These three girls have been best friends for a while now and I truly enjoyed spending time with them and their moms at all the events. Such a sweet time.|
|Graduation was a little emotional not gonna lie. Morgan made Honor Roll and also the Honor Society so she was very excited. She and her friend Abby will be going to college together.|
|I really cannot say enough about Trinity and how they pour into the High School kids and love them and their families well. They hosted a dinner for all the graduates and their families where we were asked to write our kiddos a letter and get up and read it in front of everyone. Being asked to sum up your kids entire 17+ years on one page and then oh let's see emotional parents+reading a letter in front of people; how could this go wrong? 😂😂|
|We got through it with a few tears but overall it was just a blessed time of fellowship with the class of 2018 from Trinity.|
|We have a large group of Seniors this year which is fun but also sad in a way. Lots of freshman coming up this next year so lots of changes.|
|Excited to see what God has for these three girls over the next few years.|
|We had the privilege of attending the Burn Center awards banquet out in Palm Springs this week as well. Really neat organization that puts on a camp here in our local mountains for kids who have been burned in fires and need that moral and emotional support as they heal.|
|Any excuse to get our families together is a good excuse. 😊 We hosted a graduation party at our house with a Build Your Own Sundae Bar....|
|It was so fun getting to see everyone and visit and although it was a bit crazy, Morgan felt loved and supported and so thank you to all who made your way out to our house for the day.|
|The crazy part was when a bear who had been cruising the neighborhood in the middle of the night (wreaking havoc with our trash cans) and caught on our security camera around 1am the morning before decided to walk up while we were out back with the kids in the play fort. He was not a little guy and was just walking right up the path towards us. I'm sure my sister in law and myself freaking out and running was his clue he was not welcome. We and by we I mean the husbands were calm enough to grab the kids as we bolted inside. I called Fish and Game (who of course never showed up)😳 and informed them that Yogi was getting a little to comfortable walking up to people and small kids. So now we are on high alert and also keeping our dogs close and luckily we don't have small kids anymore. I am very thankful we happened to be down at the end of the property with the girls when the bear walked up because they had all been down there alone prior to that. Last week we had a rattlesnake on our side patio so I'm like REALLY!!!!|
|All the sweet cousins growing up so fast.|
Thank you all who have sent Morgan cards of encouragement and gifts for graduation. She has been so blessed over the years to be supported by you in all she has done. She never takes that for granted and knows how lucky she is to have so much support. She is really excited about college and missions etc.
Be blessed friends.
