For weeks I had planned this post in my mind but I never really took the time to get to it done.
Now I wonder. . . Is it to late?
I mean it's July for crying out loud. It's Independence day. I should be putting up pictures of fireworks. I would if I had one decent shot from the night. But, I don't. So now here I am thinking, should I go backwards and just post what I had planned or what? I am behind on this thing. I do enjoy posting very much.
AND I think. . .
If I posted in May one of the things I most definitely would have put on would be this picture. It's of Matthew going to the prom with good friends. I also would have told you how bad I felt about missing the whole getting ready for prom, dress up and posing for picture thing.
I would have told you I missed the before prom "thing" because I was in N.C. at David's confirmation. I am sure I would have reminded everyone that David is Mark's sister's son. I'm just like that. . . I really don't like to leave people hanging and keep them wondering ab...
Then I would have said Mark was David's Confirmation sponsor and the serves was quite lovely. I really was happy we were there.
I would have told you not to worry to much about me missing the festivities for Matthew because I didn't actually miss seeing him in his Tux. When I asked Matthew to put the tux on for me the day before he quickly obliged. He's a good son and ~ we all know ~ he loves his momma.
I would have told you how I happily adjusted the vest and took pictures of my very handsome son that day.
I remember thinking ~ I really wish I could be a the meeting place with all the other moms for the picture fun. You know to make sure everything went off okay and just to make sure my little boy would be alright with those people and that girl.
Who is very lovely by the way. I really do like her very much.
~ This is "my baby" we are talking about. My Little boy. . . He's only 6ft. 2 inches in height and you know something could happen to him.
~ and then the it occurred to me ~
If Mark and I couldn't be there on this very important night. . . then who would be the next best person to send.
Who did I know with experience in this kind of thing? This person had to be someone that could go undercover and check things out without being to pushy or maybe this person could be just pushy enough but could get away with it. You know the type. But, who???
The Best Nana Ever! That's who. . .
She did a superb job! and all went well with the night. The kids had a great time.
One thing I know I would have liked to post in May would have been this picture. It’s a picture of Brian and Father Theo at Brian’s First Communion. I would have mentioned how happy and excited Brian was to finally receive the Body of Christ.
I also would have mentioned all this took place the same day as the big party. I would have mentioned how the whole day was a world wind of changing clothes, getting ready and celebrations for us all. I would have mentioned this very important fact about Brian on this post. . .if I posted in May. But, you know what? I totally forgot.
I totally forgot to even post this picture.
I even forgot my camera that morning and last night after I hit post on this post, I went to bed. Then it hit me, I remembered I completely forgot about Brian’s First Communion.
As the family reporter it’s my duty to remember these things. Don’t you think?
I even forgot my three older kids served for this very important
I would like to think I
would have told you all about IF I remembered my camera that morning. I was
lucky my sister had remembered hers. I mean after all. This is her kid. We were
lucky one of us was thinking that morning. Mass.
The next thing I would have told you about. . .If I posted in May ...was about Kathryn running with the Girls on the Run group. I would have told you how awesome the whole Girls on the Run organization is and how happy I was we got involved with this club. Kathryn and her new friends trained for months together. The finial test was "the Swamp Rabbit 5k". The girls, their moms and everyone else in the state ran this thing. It was so wonderful. We had a great time. I tell you there will be more of these for her.
My last post for May probably would have mentioned the Peterson family moved; we said goodbye to our Stephanie, baby Aubrey and Steph's husband Brian. If I posted this picture I think I would have wanted to say something like ~ WOW! They're a good looking family.
And just because It's not May, it's is July 4, Independence Day. . . and most importantly to him, it's this guys birthday I have to say. . .
Happy Birthday Brian!!!!!!
The Hoverath July 4th Baby.
