Fast forward 6 years....I've just lived what I will go through again with my own child. I moved an adoptive son of mine into his dorm room yesterday. Wow...emotional. (I've become attached to local student here over the past year and helped him and my cousin move into their dorm room.) So even though he has only been a part of my life for about a year, it was hard to drop him off knowing he was on his own of sorts. He's used to it, I'm sure, but I am not. I can't imagine what it must be like for REAL parents. I had to fight back tears as I walked to the car and I'm doing the same thing now. He's such a great kid and I just wish him nothing but success. He's going into Nursing! The medical field will be getting a real winner someday! I honestly don't know if there are enough words to describe how proud I am of him. So this pic will have to speak my words for me!

My Sister In Law is getting married today! Here are my boys (note: they each picked out their own outfit. It wasn't planned that they would have the same shirt.)
It's been sunny and beautiful all day and now as we enter the last hour before it starts, its all cloudy and has started to sprinkle. Figures. Outdoor wedding and outdoor event following. UGH....No rain ALL SUMMER LONG until NOW. Such is life...our life anyways.
