They did it!!!

Jun 5, 2012

Yes THEY, as my nephew Brit­tain grad­u­at­ed high school the night before Ans­ley. So my mom and dad get the grand­par­en­t’s award for sure. They went to Brit­tain’s grad­u­a­tion in Kountze, Texas Fri­day evening, then drove straight to Frisco to attend Ans­ley’s grad­u­a­tion, Sat­ur­day morn­ing. They arrived at our place at 2:00 a.m. Sat­ur­day morn­ing, slept a few hours and then bam it was grad­u­a­tion time all over again. Ans­ley and Brit­tain have wor­ried about Mom Mom and Paw Paw attend­ing their grad­u­a­tions since they were in the 6th grade. My mom and dad always told them they would get there one way or anoth­er and they stayed true to their promise.

Brit­tain’s Grad­u­a­tion ~ Kountze High School ~ Kountze, Texas
June 1, 2012 ~ 7:00 o’clock in the evening

Ans­ley’s Grad­u­a­tion ~ Cen­ten­ni­al High School ~ Frisco, Texas
June 2, 2012 ~ 9:00 o’clock in the morn­ing

Then with one day to rest up a slight­ly old­er ver­sion of these two left bright and ear­ly Mon­day morn­ing to head back home to Beau­mont, cel­e­brat­ing their 49th wed­ding anniver­sary. What a way to cel­e­brate an anniver­sary… dri­ving 6 hours in a car. But I guess real­ly they put them­selves in that predica­ment because with­out them none of us would be here. Maybe they rem­i­nisced about their great escape from Salem, WV in 1963, as they drove to Deep Creek, Mary­land to run off and get mar­ried… it was kin­da like old times I guess.

Love you, Mom and Dad!

And in Hon­or of all these won­der­ful Cel­e­bra­tions how about a book give­away. Leave a com­ment telling me your favorite year­ly celebration(s) and I will enter you into a draw­ing for a signed copy of my new book “Delight In The Sea­sons ~ Craft­ing A Year of Mem­o­rable Hol­i­days and Cel­e­bra­tions”!
