Trip to CT

On May 20, 2011, my mom and brother and myself went to CT to watch my other brother graduate from Central Connecticut State University. He graduated with a degree in Actuarial Science.

This one didn't turn out that great. He was on the move, and we were on opposite ends of the arena from each other.

Johnedward's name was being called out. :) Very proud moment!!! :)

Already sitting back down. And I caught a few pictures of him looking for us. :)

Johnedward checking out his diploma.

Took a little while to get out of their and back across the street to our Hotel Lobby. But by the time we all got there, Johnedward was already there. LOL!!! His girls had gotten him a graduation balloon and a bear. They are so sweet! I told him to say "CHEESE" and I think I got him mid cheese. lol

Again, this was the most proudest moment in my life, other than my wedding and the birth of my children!! And I was so excited to meet Hilary finally.

It's been over a YEAR since I last blogged, WOW! I can't believe it! There has been soooo much that's happened in the last year. Saira turned 8 and Ryan turned 11. He'll be 12 next month. Oh my, a pre teen!! I became another year older, 35. I've been to 2 retreats with my scrappy friends and to a NKOTBSB concert in June. OH MY! That was the BEST fun EVER!! This summer was really great. It was really busy at first, but then it slowed down which was great. Now we're all prepared for 3rd and 6th grade. My poor baby girl, she will be dealing with all that exit level tests, now called STAR tests, formally called TAKS. Surely she'll do just as well as her brother has the last 3 years, if not better. :) Our summer vacation is on a count down to being over... 4 more days.

I'm kind of glad that 6th grade stays with Elementary now. When I was in the 6th grade out in 29 Palms, California, it was in Elementary. Jr. High was only 7th and 8th. I think Ryan feels like he's ready to move on to Jr. High though. He keeps dissing the thought of having to stay in Elementary, "even though it's suppose to be Jr. High". That's what he's been saying all summer.

Both the kids have grown and matured alot this summer. My son has totally passed me up in height. I've known he has, but a few months ago it totally hit me that he's out grown me. :( Saira, her and I practically wear the same size shoe. Umm, you read above that she's only 8. What the heck?!?

OH OH!!! One other exciting, bitter sweet thing is that Ryan will be playing Jr. High football. Aww, I've looked forward to this every since he was born, but I don't think I'm ready for my baby boy to play with the big kids. ;)

Me, my mom and brother took a weekend trip to see my other brother graduate from College. That was one of the most awesomest family moments EVER. I was beyond proud of my brother. He's worked so hard for 7 years to get his Actuarial degree. Here you go, some more info on that: It's a pretty big deal... ;) Picture above is me and my sweet mama on our flight to see my brother! I'll for sure have to blog about that trip later. It was so awesome, and I can't wait to go see my Conneticut family again. Oh, yes, that's were my brother was going to College, Central Connecticut State University. I wish I could move there, to Guilford, CT where he lives. I loved all the history I learned in the 2 days we were there.

Ok, I promise to be back soon and blog again. I won't stay away for another year. LOL!!!
