Thoughts 4 my Thursday

On April 10th we celebrated my oldest sons 21st birthday...after getting over the shock I have a SON THAT IS 21!!! And feeling like oh wow I feel so old!!!!! (thank goodness for all those who tell me all the time I certainly do not look like I am old enough to have a son thats 21) But during this time I couldn't help but wonder where did the time go??? How did it pass by so fast????

How did we go from this:
To this:


I don't know how it happened...but it happened...and I tell you I couldn't be any more proud of him....he's in the National Guard....hes in college full time, and he has a job....he bought a new car....pays his own rent and bills......and has a heart of gold...his dad and I split when he was 6 and he dropped out of both of my older boys life, we had some rough roads ahead of us but we survived them all...I've learned so much from him and I am so very proud to call him MY SON!!!!

I of course was picture happy on his big day like I always am so here are a couple more for you:

Love it when he "acts" like he is so mad at me for taking pictures..hehe



That's my boy...showing off all his hard work!!




Sorry "toad" but no matter how old you get...mom still gets to give you a kiss
look at that wrinkled nose....geeeez hehehe

Firstly, No way do you look old enough! he looks and sounds great, you have obviously done a fine job and should be very proud...

I don't know why this post hit me the way it did. (I just told you in a text message). Thank you for sharing pictures. I love the one of him when he was little.

Kody, no matter how old you get, you will always be her "baby." Get used to it.

I tell ya, it happens in a blink of an eye, when you aren't looking! My son, Tim just turned 21 on St. Patrick's Day. And my oldest, Gina will be 25 in July! Seems like she just started Kindergarten! My baby turned 18 on Dec 26. sigh... all grown up.
