Last Friday of School
Last Friday of SCHOOL!!!!! yay yay yay. It's been a great year though. I can't complain. However, I'm looking forward to finals being over next week and we can start the summer. We have just finished our baseball season with Price. I was so proud of him this year. He hadn't played since he was 5, but he wanted to give it a try. Who knows? Maybe baseball will be in his future.
It has been fun seeing him find his "own thing" that he is loving. A few days ago, he agreed to let a teacher "buzz" his hair if the kids brought over 300 pairs of shoes to donate to an awesome organization called "Soles for Souls". Here's a picture of the buzz in action:)
I can't believe how emotional I've gotten at the end of this year and I don't even have a kid graduating from High school. The other day, I was sitting in my car at the boy's school waiting to go in for an assembly. Spence and his best friend George came out to raise the American Flag up at the flag pole. They are just talking and laughing. As I'm watching, I just start bawling my head off thinking about the fact that they will be in High School next year. It was back in kindergarten that this little dark headed boy came up to Spence and said. "Do you want to be friends?" Spence says, "sure". They start playing and have been best friends ever since. Okay, here I go crying again.
Yesterday, Stu and Price headed out to a wonderful camp called "Camp Rockmont". It's an all-boys Christian camp that they go to in the summer, but they have a Father/Son weekend in May. They headed out a day early to go white water rafting. I got a picture this morning of the two of them.
So sweet. I'm thankful that Stu invests so much time in the boys. I think it's so important to them.
Spence and I are having our own fun. Last night, the two of us went out to eat. That rarely happens. Tonight we are going to go to the midnight showing of "The Avengers". I'm really hoping that I can stay awake. He has a track meet, so we have to go to the late showing. Just look how much taller he is then me.
Tomorrow, Point of Grace is headed to Helena, AR. If you are close, come see us. It should be a perfect day for it. Hope you have a wonderful Friday.
