Benny is Home!!!!!

What a glorious day!!! Benny arrived home from South Carolina yesterday afternoon after a long two days of traveling. Whoo hoo!!! He is soooo happy to be home!! I flew into Belgrade at 11:30 yesterday evening after a very long day of flying and I am sooooo happy to be home too!! Benny and I had a wonderful time on Family day at Fort Jackson. I cried tears of joy when I saw him for the first time!!! We toured, talked, shopped, played mini golf, bowled, and totally enjoyed our time together!! I just have to say how proud I am of my boy!!! He showed discipline and maturity and became a squad leader at the tender age of 17, what an accomplishment!!! We are so proud of you son!!!!

Benny in front of the Barraks. Isn't he handsome!!!

Benny showing off his empty bottle of detergent!! Proof he actually did his laundry!!


Graduation Day!!!
What an exciting day!!! I didn't see much of Benny on Graduation Day, but that was ok! We had such a great time on Family Day and I knew that I would see him at home very soon!!!

Life will return to normal tomorrow as I go back to work at the school!! I am sooo ready to get back into a routine!! Benny will be going to soccer practice tomorrow morning at 8:00, whoo hoo!!!! I think it is all going to work out and Benny couldn't be happier!!

With my late arrival into town yesterday, I wasn't able to finish up my Scrapping the Music layout until late tonight. I will take pictures of it tomorrow and get it posted asap!!!


I hope you all have a great day!!
