Micah's graduation

Wow, another one graduating. I am starting to feel my age.

We are so proud of Micah and the fact that she has longed for this day for years and she has finally arrived. Micah graduated on May 20, 2011 at the Convocation Center in Jonesboro.

Ok, I did just fine all day until Micah asked me to do her hair and makeup. Then the tears poured. It was tears of joy for her accomplishments, not sadness.
Micah just received her diploma...

This is my favorite picture of the all. I love my baby girls smile.

These boys graduated together two years ago. It was good to see them together again.

Uncle Trevor was there with a big hug for Micah.

Grandma Susie, Camdon and Micah.

Josh, Micah's Youth Pastor along with some friends, Matt and Mallorye.

My babies...

Finally, the family is all together to get a picture. A rare treat these days. I love this picture.

It was a nice surprise to see my best friend from high school, LeAnn, at the graduation.

Micah and her sweet baby, London.

Hopefully we will see this again in four years, these two standing side by side holding up their college diplomas. Kristina and Micah will be attending college together at CRC.

Yes, she really got it!!!Micah and Aunt Pat at TaMolly's.

Andrew reminding us that in four years we will be doing this again...for the last time.

Awww, how sweet, Micah and London.

Micah's Senior night at Southside Church

Sunday night we celebrated Senior night at church. I would love to share some photos with you of our princess.

I am so proud of Micah. She is more precious than I ever dreamed a little girl could be. She is a woman of integrity with high standards and morals. Micah you are a mother's dream.

Micah with her shadow London. I don't know what these girls are going to do when Micah actually settles down.

Micah with the May's, her other family.

hmmmmm...who looks taller? She can't stand it that her little bro is taller than she is.

Our family minus one. Joshua was working for his sister so that she could attend. What a good big brother he is.

Daddy's little princess...always.

Micah taking time to get a photo with a couple of special girls in her life. She has watched these girls grow up to the young ladies they are today. Oh, and that's mom on the other side. Amy has watched Micah grow up as well.

Friendships are priceless.

Our men's group sang for us and a fine job they did.

A view of the seniors on the front row.



Josh, our youth pastor, presenting Micah and Zach with a box of Jell-o. They were involved in lots of Dr. Fear, Fear Factor games, that envolved Jello. Lots of memories there, and laughs too.

London and Callie made Micah a picture to give her before she had to rush out to get to work. They love Micah.

We enjoyed cake and punch after the presentation of the Seniors.

Our church family prayed of the students at the end of service.

What a wrecking crew! Josh and Steven mentored these young men.

We capped of the evening with the kids hanging on Andrew. They just could not get enough of him.

A word of advice...enjoy your children while they are young. This all happens way to fast.

Micah's college signing day

Wow, what a day. It was so much more than I expected and way more than Micah would have ever dreamed. So many friends and family members there to encourage her in her new adventure. Darlene had such sweet words to speak of Micah. It made this momma's heart melt.

I have posted some of the very few pictures taken today. Hope you enjoy.

Adrienne was there to represent our church family. Thanks AD.

Chrissy, Micah's former team mate, was there to share hugs and encouraging words with Micah. It was special to have Chrissy come in for this special day. She is playing for Lyons College in Batesville, AR.

Aunt Pat was there for the signing and to represent her brother, Michael's dad, Wayne, who passed away a year ago in January. Thank you so much Aunt Pat.

Me and my princess, one of my pride and joys. I was so proud today not only for the scholarship but to be excited about getting to watch her play again. She plays the game she loves with passion and that makes it very exciting. Go Pioneers!!!!!
