The first one being Baccalaureate on Sunday. Please keep in mind that Prom was Saturday night, Baccalaureate on Sunday (Mother's Day), First Round Tennis Team Districts (which they won by the way), Graduation at 8:00 PM and Project Grad Bus leaving at 9:30 PM. WOW!! Yep I am tired. Not even playin' =)
So I posted about Prom in "Sunday Letters" so we'll move onto Sunday, which was Mother's Day. I went and spent some time with this pretty lady....my mama.
My mama is 71. Isn't she just beautiful?
I had called before I came over and asked if she'd do my nails for Graduation (next day) and she quickly obliged. My mom is a GREAT nailist!!! She's done her own for YEARS!!
Not only did I get a mani, but I also got a pedi. Thanks mom!! It was a huge help and they looked SO nice. Matched my dress just beautifully =)
Well, you know Mother's Day gave me a reason to make my mom a pretty little card.
I LOVE these papers!! And you are not going to get to see it because Blogger just deleted that picture. Oh brother. I will try to remember to put it back on here in another post. It was really cute.
I found some quotes about prayer and mother's and so I included those in mom's card, and thanked her for always praying for me, and all her kids. I told her it definitely has made the difference in our lives. And to keep up the good work =)
"If you have a mom, there is nowhere you are likely to go that a prayer has not already been."
This one is a Abraham Lincoln quote. I love AL quotes. This one may be a new favorite of mine.
"I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life." Abraham Lincoln.
Then this sweet boy and I went out to eat. Yep, we kept the tradition of trying a new place neither of us had been before, so this year it was Red Robin.
(He's so tired. But he said Prom was SO fun!)
Me waiting for.....
This beautiful thang.....my vegan burger. Get out of town!!! I know. It was SO good too and they let me build it just the way I like it, complete with quacamole. Oh my, it was SO good!!
I don't know. =)
Look at this HUGE burger, Dak ordered. It was SO good!! (So he told me =)
They have endless fries at Red Robin's so we decided one of us would get the fries and one would get onion rings. Look at this babies............. Dak said they were delish!!
Here is Dak enjoying his Mint Cookie Shake and he is so mad at me right now.....see his face. Because he was SO full, but he wanted it, so I made him drink it. I am so mean =) heehee
Then that evening we went to the Clever First Baptist Church for Baccalaureate. They did a really nice job.
My girl, Trisha, sang an Audio Adreneline song: Goodbye - Goodbye
She did good!
The speaker was the Youth Leader from a neighboring town. She was really good.
She read out of the 139th Psalm. Yes, I was overjoyed!!! Those of you who read my blog regularly know that Dak and I read the 139th Psalm on the first day of school. It was a fitting close to his High School career. God ALWAYS knows what He's doing!!
She also gave an altar call. I'd never been at a Baccalaureate that an altar call was given. Apparently there were some mixed emotions by at least one of the parent's, but I thought it was terrific. Anytime that Christs' Name is glorified and people who don't know Him have the opportunity to know Him, I say ABSOLUTELY!!! It was terrific!!!!!
Here is Dak and Bobby. Bobby is a good kid. He's going to be a diesel mechanic.
The church really made it so nice for us, complete with sandwiches, relish trays, nuts, mints, cake and drinks. It was really great!!! Then they donated the balloons to us for Project Grad. It was a nice touch.
Look at these tables.....really pretty.
