Sort of a 365/Photo Gratitude Journal.
I miss my blog.
I miss our memories being recorded.
Life has picked up its pace if, that's possible it was already going pretty fast, and we love pouring over this space...
a space full of our memories.
Bare with me as I'm not always good at sticking to these type things, especially when life is whirling in all directions.
So yesterday I should have shared this:
My nephew received his Eagle Scout, and yesterday was the big day to honor him and the person he honored with his Eagle Scout project. Pictured here are my Mom, Papa (stepdad, but I hate that term) and Aileen the wife of Joel Durrett. Joel was a big influence in my nephew's young life, as Gavin was considering what to do for his Eagle Scout project, it became clear to him that this would be the most meaningful.
My parents have raised Gavin since he was 18 months old. He is their heart and joy.
Papa is a court reporter, we've all been raised up within the legal community. Gavin especially so.
Our State Representative Larry Phillips came and presented Gavin with a flag that has flown at the Texas State Capitol.
My Linus is in the long sleeves. He and three other scouts led the pledge. It was such an honor to be asked to do this, Linus also got to help Gavin with his Eagle project, what a learning experience for a young scout. The 4 boys who led the Pledge each have a Mom who work in the Court system within the County, I've had the great pleasure of working with the other two Moms.
I love this photo, I greatly admire both of the ladies here.
