The month of May has been very busy around here. I sort of feel like we are repeating the month of December when we never have a free minute. That's ok though! I'd rather be busy than bored or unable to participate in my families milestones.
On May 11, our Bubba earned his degree in Oil and Gas Technology from Bossier Parish Community College. As most of you know, this was a miracle in itself as he was in that terrible wreck in September. The doctors told him he'd not be able to walk for at least six months. He proved them wrong and was back in class in December.
The Bossier Press Tribune did an interview with him, and the article came out on his graduation day. We all just sat there with tears in our eyes feeling so blessed and so thankful he had lived through that and achieved his goal to finish by the end of May. You can read the article HERE.
I was also excited to see some kids I taught in elementary school also graduate the same day! I guess that's double dipping!
This is a picture of Bubba and one of his best friends from high school, Katy. Katy graduated again with Bubba, and the funny thing is that Bubba ended up sitting right behind Katy at the ceremony - out of 372 graduates - that was pretty neat!
The speaker at the ceremony chose 4 students to highlight, and one of them was Bubba for his determination to finish. We were again touched beyond words!
Our next milestone was our little Shelby who graduated Pre-K on May 17th. She was so adorable during their program. She never missed a beat or a verse singing the songs. She said her Bible verse loud and clear - so loud we were wondering who this kid was?
If you read this to the bottom, I really appreciate it. I know most people don't find my blog very interesting, but is my life and this is what brings me joy.
I comment on so many blogs and the majority of them never even come to look at mine. I may continue for a while and then just give it up. I don't have much else to share except my family and the projects I make.
I hope everyone has a good weekend. Thanks for stopping by.
