The First Born

Tomorrow morning, this handsome guy will be sworn into the Navy. I am very proud of him and am breathing a huge sigh of relief that we have made it this far. We had a great party on Sunday and the question of the day to Tyler was, "So when do you leave?"  I don't think they were expecting to the hear his answer, "Tomorrow."

We were thankful for the very special friends and family who came, helped and traveled to let Tyler know they cared about him and will be thinking of him.

Tyler and Mike left this afternoon to be ready for the ceremony in the morning. The girls and I are recovering and cleaning up. I didn't get many pictures from the party because I was so busy but my aunt took some so I'll get them from her.

It actually feels good to send this one off into the world.  He has fought us for so long to make his own decisions. It's nice to finally be able to let him go.

Tyler: Before Blogging

We're getting ready for Tyler's grad party next weekend today I gathered the pictures for a slide show.  I just took pictures of the photos in the photo albums since it would have been too time consuming to scan all the pictures. When I look at these pictures I am proud, happy, content and thankful for the journey.
