He did it and they're gone!

Doug graduated! He is officially out of school. Now we have two week until he leaves for boot camp. :0(

Andy and Nicole have left, too. They came in for Doug's graduation last TH and left this morning. We had a nice visit. The house is very quiet tonight. LOL Doug is at MEPS for Marine stuff , and Luci is pooped from playing so hard with the her visiting friends: Andy & Nicole's dogs. After having a house full all week, it seems really eerie.

More about Doug..LOL

Well, Doug had an awards program Monday night and he got an award for computer class in Web Design. He was ok with that, no big deal. Well, he has a classmate who was accepted into the Air Force Academy, $385, 000 scholarship worth, and when the Major came and gave him letter he got a standing ovation. Really cool. Well, then Doug's guidance counselor got up and announced that Doug was going to be joining the Marines and leaving for boot camp in June, HE got a standing ovation too. He was a little embarrassed. LOL and mom & dad were quit proud.

Bragging a bit

Well, today was Doug's last home game of his H.S. career. He did an awsome job! It was a double header. He played second base in the first game and he pitched the second game and did great! Then, his last time at bat he hit a home run and drove in two other players!! I was so glad he had a great game, but it was even more exciting to know he went out with a bang!

He still has three games left in the season, and then sectionals start next week. I hope he does as well at all of those.

With Mother's Day, I became a little reflective. I will soon be an "Empty Nester" as some say.

May always seems to be a crazy month at our house. We have end of the year concerts, awards programs, baseball games, end of the season picnic, Memorial Day and Race day here in Indy, and it marks the end of the school year for the kids.

This May is just as crazy! Only I find it a kind of sad due to the fact it is our final busy May, after 17 years, it's coming to an end. Doug, will be graduated this year.

I find myself wondering how I will spend my evenings with no more freezing at soccer games, cheering at basketball, or running the scoreboard at baseball. No more school concerts to go to either. My what progress the kids made over the years!

So, as this chapter comes to a close, I guess I'll have to wait for grandkids! Then, Crazy Mays can start again! LOL

Vera Bradley Stuff what is the big deal with Vera Bradley? I drove a group of ladies, by bus, for two hours to a convention center in Ft. Wayne IN. We waited in line for almost two hours and when we were let it was craziness!!! We each got a garbage bag and I was told if it looked like something I might be interested in to Grab it! There were ladies there grabbing the same purse in nine different colors and some had two or three bags full!

I did buy some things: Christmas gifts and a "Bowler Bag" for my SIL.

There were 25 of us on the bus so the lady in charge thought it would be cool if she added up what everyone purchased: $6,300+ it averaged out to $250 per person. Well, I can tell you, someone spent way over that, 'cause I didn't spend even close to that. Mine was like $98.

I was there and still don't get what all the fuss is about. LOL
