The Graduate

Don wonders why people say "you did it!" As if it's a big surprise that he accomplished his masters. But I don't think that it's the element of surprise that causes people to say this. I think it's more a matter of chronological celebration. He DID do it. He arrived at the goal that he set out to accomplish a couple of years ago. This is the time to celebrate. Celebrate what? Well, the fact that he did it!

Brother Mike and nephew McClay.

Joey Fitzgerald.

Brad Johnson and Jason Jackson.

Jonathan Blackburn.

Jeremy Martin.
Jim Tremblay and Jason Aycock.

And here he is, ladies and gentlemen--bona fide.
On the way back to Georgia, we were rockin' out to some 90's tunes, including "Africa" by Toto; Babay babay" by Britney Spears; "Genie in a Bottle" by Christina Aguilara; "All that She Wants" by Ace of Base; "I'll be Watching You" by the Police; "Summertime" by Will Smith.

The Wilmore week-end was really great. Mom and Dad kept all three boys so that we could take in the full experience, and that we did. I felt God's gentle reminder not to forget the lessons that we learned during Don's time in seminary. Much like he told the Israelites when they were about to cross into the promised land, I felt him telling me to remember His mighty works. It's unbelievable how quickly I forget. Oh Lord, help me to remember! And help me to tell my children, so that they will know of your faithfulness to us.
We spent some quality time with some very dear friends. We appreciate you, and realize what treasures we have in each of you!
