Mom remembers.....

My son was married Saturday....and memories came flooding - what joy and fun - and now on to another adventure.





The first trip to camp was really hard - for me. smile


The tall skinny one is Rod - I'm on the right.

High school senior..

5th degree black belt - tough face on a teddy bear...

My wedding post follows....I just needed to do these after I posted the wedding - so this comes first; it was just too clumsy to add these photos at the end. (And they were the beginning of the story anyway).....I only hope the rest will be as wonderful.

Isn't it wonderful to go back and remember? What a handsom son you have and I'm glad you have the joy of seeing him married now.

Awww, how sweet! I never had any children so I tend to dote on my niece and nephew and my great niece and nephew. It's a pride all my own but it's as close to feeling and understanding that love and joy. They grow up so fast.

How very sweet--this tribute to your son! How hard it is to see them grow up, Helen. I know you have a lot of really bittersweet memories right now, and lots of prayers for a wonderful future for he and his bride, but longings for that little boy again too. He looks like a great young man! I know you are so proud!
