Happy Graduation Day for Erik!!!

Hurray!! Erik walked with his class last night at the graduation ceremony for Natrona County Highschool!!! I didn't get good pictures I am so sad. I couldn't find him as he was in the very back row so I took some pictures of a look alike farther in. :) We will have to get some good pics of him soon. :)
Above is the real Erik walking up to get his diploma!
Below is the Erik look alike-not the real Erik!

Memorial stone is here. :)

We stopped by the gravesite yesterday and low and behold there was a stone there ! Hurray! We still need the picture of Joshua on it and our two flower urns on the side. The picture will go right between his dates. I don't know if the writing stands out as much as I would like but over all I think it turned out really neat. :)

Very Silly Kids

I have a bunch of silly kids. But I love them. This Jacob picture was taken pre wipeout. :)

Wipe Out

Jacob had a wipe out on his scooter last Friday. He had 8 stitches in his lip and one of his front teeth pushed back up into the gum. The dentist is hoping the tooth will be ok and slowly drop back down. Poor guy.

Happy Mothers Day

What a amazing gift it is to be a mom. I have known the joy of bearing 4 beautiful children. My love for each of my children is deeper then I can fully understand. Below is a picture of me holding my first baby boy....My oldest. What happiness and joy. I had no idea that I would only get to raise him for 10 years. I consider each moment I spent with him a gift from God. My heart is broken with the pain of missing him. The separation is agony. And yet God chose to experience that same physical and emotional seperation from his dear Son so that we might be reunited with our loved ones for all eternity. I consider each moment spent with my living 3 precious children gifts from God. What a privalege it is to be a mom. Happy Mothers Day to all who love children and appreciate the amazing gift of life granted from our Creator.

"A wife who loses a husband is called a widow. A husband who loses a wife is called a widower. A child who loses his parents is called an orphan. But...there is no word for a parent who loses a child, that's how awful the loss is!" - Neugeboren 1976
