We also had family from all over Arizona show up for the event, which we celebrated at my grandparent’s house. (I wish they were both alive to witness it.)

*My aunt Elsa and Uncle Jimmy were there too, but I don’t have a picture of them.

Watching your son graduate from college is, by far, one of the best experiences a parent can ever have. I love him so much, and wish him nothing but success in his future endeavors.

My son, Christian, picked up his cap and gown from the college bookstore today!

There will be family members flying in, and driving, from everywhere to watch him walk at the ceremony, and to celebrate with him after. It’s going to be nice for him to see that all of his hard work didn’t go unnoticed.

He’s only 17, but he has proven to excel in all things he attempts, and completes.

Below is an email from one of his instructors,

and one from the president of the Phi Theta Kappa, at his college.

I’m extremely proud of my son, and know he will succeed at anything he decides to do now and in the future.

I love him so much.

Star had to unpack her skates, so we can go there. It was totally worth it, because they had a blast. When we got home, I looked up skate parks where we’re moving, and found one 15 minutes away!

Yay!

I had a dentist appointment on Tuesday, and when I got home after, I saw THIS on a table, waiting for me. (From my kids.)

We used to have it when they were little, and they said they remember me playing it, and liking it. (They found it on eBay.) lol

I love that they think about me, and surprise me with random things from my past.
Christian and Star resized
We stayed up until almost midnight, trying to beat each other’s scores.

It was sooo much fun!

I love my kiddos. Just sayin’.

I love that she thinks about me when I’m not home.

(My husband had to fly out to DC for work this morning. He and I left at 5:00 a.m., to get him to the airport, so she didn’t see me before I left.)
