The late spring days have brought many joyous times to us. In late May we had a lovely visit with our daughter and son-in law. Their son lives with us and is pure joy. Believe me, he is a great help to his grandparents and has taken on the duty of mowing our lawn. Hey, we'll take all the help we can get! Samuel's 26th birthday was celebrated while his parents came for a visit. When family is visiting I never seem to remember to take photos!
Chocolate cake and chocolate chip mint ice cream was requested by Samuel for his birthday. No one was sad about that request!
We enjoyed several days with Noel and Peter. They share our love of daily walks and joined us each morning after breakfast. It was so good to visit with them. All of our family is completely vaccinated and that makes this Mama and Grandmother very happy.
During this week, we attended the graduation of our middle grandson, Alex. Their graduation was held outdoors at a very unusual venue--Richmond International Raceway!
With 408 graduates, there was plenty of room.
Though difficult looking through a fence, we watched with pride as Alex received his diploma.
Goodness, it seems like yesterday we attended Grady's graduation. Here is Alex, Grady and Miles. Miles will be a junior next year.
After the ceremony, we all went out for dinner. After this past year of separation, we were so glad to spend more time with our family.
