They did it!!!
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.

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!
