Where Past Meets Present II


On April 9th, 2011-- Adam became a Soldier in the United States Army Reserves-- Signal Corp.

A few hours later.....he went to his Senior Pom. Balanced between being a man and a teenager.

My handsome boy; not quite 18.

Adam's tiny prom date and very good friend, Andy.

I tried to get the whole group. All of the Senior class are such great friends. All meeting up and enjoying being dressed up together. One of their last big hurrahs!

Look at Adam....looking fresh and young....he looks so much more grown up just 4 1/2 months later. A lot can happen in a short period of time.

The kids went in a huge, stretch limo to dinner while the parents are getting ready for them to make their grand entrance. This is the fun part....having fun with our kids and they were having fun being admired for who they have become and how wonderful they look this night.

Lucey waited patiently as she blew her bubbles.

Adam and Andy walking towards Andy's Father to shake his hand.

A funny comment being made....it went something like, "that's my daughter, take care of her tonight." The crowd of parents were laughing. Of course I know my son would take very good care of his date. He is just that kind of guy.

We took a quick peek at them in the dance....a quick photo and we left them alone.

Andrew makes dinner for the family. He went through my cookbooks and decided on the menu.

Andrew is making lemon scones. We have never made them before. They were pretty easy.

He made a Southwest Tortellini Soup. I have made this before and it is very delicious and perfect for a beginner cook.

Voila....a beautiful meal we all enjoyed together. Thank you, Andrew, for putting your heart and soul into this delicious creation.

I'll be back soon for part III

  1. I love reading your blog!! Thank you for raising a son who is willing to serve our country in the most honorable way!!! As a mother of boys myself, I find it a little bit terrifying, but also very fulfilling! Tell your husband a big THANK YOU from the Weeds for his service! I respect the people who are willing to put their lives on the line for our freedom and the families who support them!! Looking forward to reading part III!
