A Bittersweet Day!!!

Today is the first day of Summer vacation, Whoo hoo!!  It is also  the day we drive our son to Basic Training.  I can't say that without my eyes welling up with tears.  I am very proud of my boy and goodness knows that I will be on my knees in prayer constantly for the next 6 years!!!! Here is a picture of him with his sisters back in 1994.  What a cutie!!!  He was the happiest baby and a joy in our lives!!!  We have had our ups and downs, but he is a great son and I love him tremendously.  I am soooo proud of my boy!!!

Scrapping the Music #89.  

This week's song is Our Town, by James Taylor.  I wasn't sure where I was going to go with this song, but when I saw the lyrics, "Time Brings Change", I knew I had to make a layout with my boy.  He has changed so much, especially in the last 6 months.  He is becoming  a man.  Wow, where has the time gone.  I used my STudio Calico kit for this one and it was perfect with all the little boy images!


Thank you for taking the time to stop by and I will be by your blogs in the next couple of days.  We will be gone with Benny until Wednesday.

Don't forget Friday Cropper's club is starting up this Friday.  Click on the prompt on the top right hand side of this page for more information!!!

See you all on Wednesday!!

Kristii great layout as always, but more importantly is the fine young man you and your husband have raised. You both should be proud and I will add him to my "safe prayer" list. Congratulations to Benny for making a choice to serve, it's the men and women like them that allow us to be free to do and become what we want to be! God Bless!
