Happy memories

Last week I shared the fact that I was running at top speed, getting through the week of final exams and planning for my youngest son's 8th grade graduation and my middle son's high school graduation. Our busy week is now past, and we're left just with memories of some good, good times.

Want a glimpse?

My youngest son Lee (now a freshman!) and a very proud mom

Jack, Preston, and me

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning" (James 1:17).

I had a highschool graduate at my house, too. I asked the Lord to help me really live in the moment and make memories. Sometime I find myself worrying about house guests, receptions, etc. I have beautiful memories of Emily's special day. I'm glad you do, too.

I know that you are so proud of your boys! Catie has not had graduation yet, but she is finished with school. Thankfully, our days are a little more relaxed now. Enjoy the summer with your family. Carla

Aw...what a sweet post Richella, it seems like yesterday (not 2 years ago) when my Sarah graduated from high school.
Be prepared for lots of changes. Now is when they really start flying and testing their faith and learning how to fully rely on God. It is a beautiful thing to witness!
I pray the Lord will show your home many exquisite blessings as your family (ahem) matures ;)
HUGS!

Thanks so much for sharing the photos, Richella, and for letting us all share in your sons' important events. I cannot believe that Lee is so grown up - a decade flies by, doesn't it?! It's great to see you so happy, Richella, and Jack looking so healthy. Praise God, indeed; you are extremely blessed.
Much love,
Erin

Such happy memories and such sweet pictures! How proud you must be of those boys. Congratulations to all of you {because really, all of the milestones wouldn't have been possible without a hardworking and very devoted mama.} : )

Am reading your blog and feeling a lot of things. One of them is how much we have in common. I, too, am married to Jack (my own Jack of course), mom to 3 boys all in high school. All boys quite tall and lanky like yours. Love to decorate and relatively new to the blogging world. Well actually blogged for a couple of years but don't do much of it as this high school tour is super, super busy and I cannot believe how timeis flying! Blessing to you and yours.
