Timothy had prom last night. His girlfriend, Alyson, looked beautiful as usual. The prom committee, 6 parents, threw this together in 4 weeks. Everything looked great and the kids had a good time, I think.
I must admit I am glad that Timothy got that experience. As a homeschool mom, you want them to have some of the same opportunities that other kids have. Timothy will tell you, that really would not matter to him, prom that is. And most likely he is right. But I know to some of those girls last night, they will be happy they had that experience. Here are a couple of pictures.

This is to test and see if I can send something to my blog from my phone. Just one more thing for me to do on my phone.

Mother's Day

I had a wonderful day yesterday. It started with breakfast in bed and church. I thought I might have to work last night, but that fell through, so we decided to rent a movie and have a "movie night". We rented Avatar. I didn't think I would really like this movie - but it was good - it even had a romance in it (which always keeps mommy interested). The gifts from the kids were all their doing - which makes it even more special. Matthew's small group leader took the kids out to get presents for mom. He bought me a bouquet of flowers and a musical card. Jacob made his card and stuck $5 of his own money in it. You see, the boys know I am saving up my money for a laptop. Timothy made me a spinning card that listed all the things I am to him. All these items are cherished blessings and will be stored in my hope chest. What wonderful kids I have. I also have a wonderful hubby!! I thought I would share my gifts......

my almost 18 year old

The end of baseball season is coming and one of the father's is putting together a slide show of all the boys. Most of the boys are graduating so he is adding pictures of them when they were little. I had to go find some old pictures of Timothy for him and since I have them on my computer now, I thought I would share them with you. I can't believe he is almost 18 and will be graduating in December. Enjoy...

Cinco De Mayo

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!! Or as we know it around our house - MY BIRTHDAY! How old I am really doesn't matter. I really have to think about it anyway. I don't automatically know my age anymore. I catch myself doing math in my head whenever anyone ask.

Today will be busy, but I am trying to throw in some fun stuff in between. We will see how successful I am.

Have a great Cinco De Mayo!!!
