Graduation 2009

Well, it's over and I made it! And so did Jake! I can't believe he's all growed up! 18 yrs ago we were blessed with a handsome baby boy. Weighing in at 8.7 lbs on February 7, 1991. I can't believe it's been 18 years! The years really do fly by! My parents were right. I've enjoyed every minute of being his mom and will continue to enjoy it. Yep, there's been some trying times but I wouldn't change a thing. I'm truly proud of him!

Here's some photos from graduation for your viewing pleasure.....
