It's that time...
I remember like it was yesterday when I put my two boys on the bus, Chris going to 2nd grade and Nathan going to his first day of kindergarten. Chris the older and wiser brother taking his little brother under his wing to show him how it's done. Here we are, after a blink and the older brother is in the Navy making a big life for himself, protecting what's near and dear to us all, and the little bro is graduating from High School.
It has all been so wonderful. All the baseball, football and basketball. All the helping in the classrooms of teachers who are now our dear friends. Meeting those who were in the same place all those years ago and who are now, tonight watching their kindergartners graduate from High School.
I wouldn't change a thing. God has been so good to us. This is the place and time He meant for us to be long before we would ever know it ourselves and all is very good.
Nathan is moving to Klamath Falls on Sunday June 12th. He has a job at the YMCA. Is that perfect for him or what? Chris is coming home on leave June 24th and will be here when family and friends come to celebrate Nathan's graduation on July 2nd. Is that perfect or what? We are a blessed family and we look forward to the day when our boys, who went on the bus together to Jerome Prairie Elementary in Grants Pass, OR, come and visit because they love our company and want to be with mom and dad.
Stan and I are going to be just fine. We love all the same things, well maybe he doesn't love scrapbooking, but I love sports. We both love to travel and camp and enjoy our home. Life will be different but we are exactly where we are want to be. God IS good.
