eighteen, take two...

A week ago we hit a major milestone...


In what seems like the blink of an eye {or two}, our children are now grown.

It has been such a crazy-busy fall that he may have wondered if he would make it to eighteen, but here he is... with a little time on his hands to spare. He celebrated with friends, and then again with us.  Enchiladas, Red velvet cake. And a couple of ways to hear his favorite tunes: a new ipod {to replace the one he washed & dried} and a new radio for his truck. He is so thankful for both.

I am thankful... that he is such an amazing young man. Truly. I count my blessings and my lucky stars, and I cannot keep the tears from my eyes.  He earned his Eagle Scout at the end of November {we'll celebrate next month}, he has been accepted to numerous colleges, and he is one of the kindest people I know.  He has it all together... and I am excited to watch where he takes it.
