Mother's Day weekend was jam packed with activity. We took tons of pictures so I tried to narrow it down a bit.......hope you can stay with me till the end! :)
Saturday morning my whole family traveled to Charleston, IL to see my youngest brother, Nathan, graduate from Eastern IL University. It was neat to be able to see for the first (and last!) time his house and the campus. The campus there is really beautiful.
This is a picture of the whole family outside of the building where he had a lot of his classes for his major (finance).
Me and Noah
Drew typed up this letter for me in computer class. It especially touched me because he rarely shares his feelings for me anymore. I know he loves me even though he doesn't say it much.
"Dear Mom, Thanks for taking care of me when I'm sick. Thanks for cooking, helping with homework, and giving me clothes. And last but not least, thank you for letting me go to St Dominic's. Love Drew"
He also gave me this beautiful flower.............................
which I'm going to put in this gorgeous flower pot made for me by my Godson, Ty.He used his fingers to make the petals. Quite the artist, that Godson of mine! Today I also received a Mother's Day card from my Goddaughter Kira that had a voice recording in it from her. I was so excited to hear her sweet little voice. She lives up in Plainfield IL so I don't get to see her too often.Good news.....are basement is getting cleaned up tomorrow! They start at 1:00. I'm glad to get this process moving along and get it back to being a nice place to hang out. I didn't realize just how much space we had down there until we were confined to the main floor!! It has looked like a tornado has gone through it.
