Graduation a bit late...

Aric graduated from SFTS with a Master's in May, I'm just slow on the blogging uptake. Congratulations my love!

The last three years have been a lot of intense work on his part. He's written, read, discussed and learned the time away.

And now, as so much time has passed, he's already accepted a great new job! We are still waiting for the final steps later in September, but we're all really hopeful.

We're all so proud of him *smile*


So my littlest one is 1 year old today! I can't believe how fast the time has gone. It felt like Avery took forever to reach one year, now it feels like Curran took 3 months to reach the same age! Yep, I'm a gettin' old *wink*

Curran loved the plethora of punching balloons and whipped cream present at his little party; however, he wasn't sure what to do with the candle besides try to touch it. He had very much fun spooning his cream-covered brownie in to his mouth, then rubbing his hands in it, then rubbing his face and head. To say the least we had a very nice bath after dinner!

His royal highness chose to get up on this chair himself, and stayed there while he opened his gifts. The hat didn't stay on too long however... The last picture is him raiding his Kix-filled bubble gum machine. But fear not, we actually managed to fill him up enough that he stopped snacking by the end of the night.

It's been a beautiful year. And no, I'm not crying... *sniff*

June already?

Things are going pretty well. Busy planning for the boys' birthdays. I've been having a ball gardening. The hollyhocks (in the middle of the box) are now twice the size. I've planted basil, a trailing plant, and am maintaining petunias for a neighbor who moved away. I know I have more to say, but I'm too hot & tired at the moment :P We hope to make it to Monterey area soon to visit our dear friends, but now Aric works Saturdays... ug. Blessings all!
