It's official, my youngest daughter took her oath or she was sworn into the Navy ROTC. We went to see it this past weekend. here are some pictures that I took. We are so very proud of her.

Here she is talking with her family before the ceremony.

Here she is in full uniform.

Here she is with her Daddy.

The ceremony was very nice.


I just had to share with you that my DD got a job and she starts September first. Most of you know that she graduated with her master in social work in June about a week before her wedding. She could find a job in Seattle, and that is there lose. I am so happy o have them back in Texas that I would sing it from the roof tops (good thing I can't get up there ... I would surely fall). and I don't do tall things as I am scared of heights. I am anxiously awaiting a phone call to tell me how her first day of work went. I know, I know that I have to wait for her to start the job.


As you can see I have been working my fingers to the nubs trying to finish a gift to my kids. It still needs more work but i hope to be finished soon.

My Tat

I just had to share my tat ... my baby got it for me before she moved.

So what do you think?

Empty Nest

Well its official, I have an empty nest. My oldest DD has gone to visit her new in-laws and my baby DD has moved to Nebraska to attend the University of Nebraska. In 4 years she will be a navy nurse. This will be an exciting time for her.

We are both a little sad, we are used to the noise we hear when everybody wakes up in the morning. Although it was crowded with 5 adults in our 3 bedroom home, according to my daughter. I loved having them all at home. We had lots of family time. Now its just so quiet. Its like "what do I do now". We have been raising our kids for a lot of years, and now what?

Hugs to all
