This past week was full of graduations for my family. Last Tuesday, my oldest son, Logan, graduated from preschool. It was a short 10 minute graduation. His next big milestone is going to Kindergarten. I am confident that he is ready. He loves learning and is always excited when he accomplishes something new. Rob and I are very proud of Logan. We cannot wait to see what he will learn and accomplish in Kindergarten. Being the emotional woman I am, I actually did not cry, mostly because the graduation was so cute that it brought more of a smile to my face than tears.

This past Saturday, my husband graduated from college. It took him nine years but he never gave up when things got tough. He has worked hard for our family to accomplish this goal that his parents are proud of and that I am proud of. I cannot wait to see where God takes our family and how God will use Rob through teaching high school students.

 I feel like this past year I have been on a spiritual roller coaster and as this school year comes to a close, I feel that I am having a spiritual graduation in my heart. I have learned many things that God has wanted me to learn. I have felt God changing my heart, mind, and soul to have a better attitude. I have felt God working on me to give things to Him and not to worry.

Saturday was an emotional day. We wished that Rob's dad could have been here to see Rob graduate. We know Rob's dad is very proud of him. On another emotional note, it marked 5 years since I graduated college. God has done a lot in my family inside of these 5 years. God has had plans that we never would have thought of. Even though some plans didn't go as we thought, God was and still is faithful, loving, merciful. God was and is our provider, comforter, and forgiver of our mistakes. I don't know what the future will hold for our family. One thing I know is that God will be with us. We will have faith, hope, and love.


  1. Congrats to all of your graduates! I love your comment of a spiritual graduation in your heart. I have never thought of it that way, awesome love it!

  2. Congratulations to both your son and your husband. Teaching is such a noble career. I hope he enjoys many years of success!

  3. Congratulations to your son, but especially to your husband! My daughter will also be graduating from college in just a few days. She will be a middle school science teacher! She is also a parent with a family. In fact, she took off 2 semesters when her son was born! Graduating college while being a parent is not an easy task, at all! I speak from experience since am also one who went to school and graduated college while raising a family, at the age of 30.

  4. Two graduations in one week! That is awesome! Your husband sounds awesome. Congrats to him and to you for graduating 5 years ago! That is hard to do!

  5. Sounds to me that God is doing a great and mighty work in your life - and in the lives of your family!

  6. Wow! What an exciting time! I also love your comment about the spiritual graduation. What a a great way to look at the trials in our lives.
