Racing For The Pond

            (PRE NOTE) It has been a busy time, but I have lots to share. My daughter had surgery yesterday on her ankle again and my son had Awards night. I look forward to blogging and showing ya'll all the things that I have been up to.

 
As a Senior tradition the last day of school the students race out the gates and jump into a pond across the street.

 

 Blaise has waited for this day since he was in eighth grade and witnessed his sisters pond jump.





I love this picture of him and his friend...they are so happy, they were one of the first to make it across.

 
 His dad tried to give him $100.00 to NOT jump ....he told him no amount of money was gonna keep him from jumping.




 I was so busy cheering that I did not shed a tear,
 Not so sure that I will make it to graduation night with no tears...

Make a momma proud...he received his
Academic Honors cord last night!

I am sure if we had a pond across from our school my son would pick jumping in over the C$sh! Looks like fun. It is so hard to see them grow up but you raised them right and should be SO proud!!

Hope your daughter gets better.
