Our Baby is a College Graduate!

On May 15th, we had the privilege of watching our baby girl walk across the stage at the Ferrell Center and receive her diploma.

The hard work paid off!

She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Sciences Disorders from Baylor University in 3 years!!!!!  And graduated Cum Laude.  Actually, was .05 from graduating Magna Cum Laude. However, graduating with honors, many 4.0 semesters, while serving in a sorority, hours of community service and working part-time at a local church serving many special needs children, is nothing short of AHHHMAZING!

We could not be more proud.

Proud mom and dad!

Could not have moved her home without this gem!!

The smile from ear to ear says it all!

This girl loves Theta and Lilly!

The "signature" pose!

Time to turn that ring around!  

She will further her studies come fall, wearing orange!  Quite a change from the green and gold.  She plans to earn her Masters in Speech Pathology, and land her dream job of working on a cranial facial team working with children born with cleft palates.  A worthy ambition!

She was and continues to be a bright light for her Heavenly Father wherever she goes.

Proud of you sweet girl!!

My husband and I are often asked how we mananged to raise two girls who were extremely focused and both of whom graduated early?  Our answer,  "find your God given talent/passion, embrace it, work hard for it, and pray ALOT!!"

We can't wait to see what this new chapter holds for both of our girls.

Reflections, A Mother's Day Addition~

Since I actually started this little old blog on Mother's Day awhile back, I thought it would be fitting to reflect on Motherhood today.

In no particular order...
