OMW - If I go to the front of the van and STAND up, I can get 4 bars and maybe post and maybe get email...maybe. I've tried to email Heather and Bobbie Jo for the past hour. Ladies....I've not forgotten. Heather - I'll call you after lunch...we need to take photos, why did we say goodbye last night? I should have saved my tears. ::snifft:: (snorting and sniffing)
Yesterday - we made a great banner out of purple duct tape, a garbage bag and a sharpie....see the packers did leave something. LOL We took Arielle to Mr. Gattis. I LOVED having to move 4 tables together again....and having every seat in the van full as we headed for graduation.
Graduation was sweet....and hard. I have photos...a few...the flash wasn't working and the kids used the little Cannon power shot....We're so very proud of Jamin.
Standing on that platform it came home for all of us...we're leaving....and four kids will be Stateside when we leave....Denial came to a screeching halt. Ah...pray for us. Thanks for all in the SACHSA family who have promised to be there should the boys need anything.
I woke up at 5 a.m. today with leaking eyes....but this is fairly common when a child leaves home around here....and this is graduation, leaving home and saying goodbye to many dear friends.
Today is a chapel farewell. Heather is going to take some family photos for us. Bre flies out tomorrow afternoon. I'll upload photos when I can get a strong enough connection to make it to Photobucket.
Choosing Joy! Yep - even in goodbyes.
