I'm a believer in Jesus Christ. A lover of my sweet husband Shaun. A mommy to my three kiddos Emerson, Atticus, and Sabriel. My friends and family tend to blur together. I *make stuff up* out of scrapbooks, altered items, and miniBOOKS that reflect these relationships.
Yesterday, my little brother graduated from police academy.
It's crazy to think that the same little guy that used to pretend that sticks are guns, wore a knight's helmet around, and had a favorite GI Joe named "Crazy Legs" is now deputy sheriff!
I'm so proud of him. He won an award for the most improvement in his physical training. He takes his duties very seriously.
And I even think he likes donuts. ;)
Donovan at lunch before the graduation. He's such a cutie. I'm sure he loves me saying about him, too.
Me embarrassing him in front of his fellow officers. Actually, now that I look at it, I think I'm just embarrassing myself. ;) Love that he's really smiling in this pic. See how our eyes disappear when we smile? heh
My bro with our grandpa
Strike a pose, dude!
Donovan and Grams Donovan had just said one of his trademark one-liners.
Donovan, Mom, and Dad Once we went into the graduation ceremony, I got the kids settled quietly with coloring books and markers. "Good," I think. "They seem to be entertained."
And yet, Atticus can never, ever, ever stop talking. Constant monologue with that boy. You hear the absolute quiet in the room? That's because around 150 people were all sitting there quietly at the beginning of the ceremony as they bring in the graduates and the flags.
So yeah... me and the kiddos ended up going outside for a bit. LOL
Atticus and my little sis Mallory What a poser.I am jealous of her hair. Finally, this pic is exceedingly precious to me.
