Celebrate -Accomplishments and Decisions Made

When we got back from Mass, we toasted to accomplishments and decisions made.  Goober had made the very difficult decision to not go away to Lindenwood, but instead stick around and go to Same Houston State University.   This was huge game changer for her.  I think it was a wise decision, she has really thought out the pros and cons.  She and Pooker will continue living together and she will commute to the campus (40 minute drive) a few times a week.  That decision was epic and made - reason for a celebration.

Summer classes were now over and Bear passed all his courses - meaning he now has his Associates Degree before moving on.  Very proud of this young man.
Sugar had passed a very difficult Mass class, it is was now behind her.
Possible had tagged along one after with Sugar and has started the process to she can take her placement test.  She is wanting to  start a few classes at the community college.  She plans on taking Math and another basic class. Considering she is still a senior in high school I think it calls for a toast.

Cheers to my great children and their accomplishments.

Need Some More Family Pictures

Knowing that Bear was going far away and that our time of having everyone together was growing shorter I asked for another family shot.  I love this crazy group of people.

Parish Blessings for Pilgrim Trips

Our LifeTeen group had two groups of missionaries leaving on the same day.  One group was heading to Haiti and the other was heading to Europe for World Youth Day.  The Haiti mission trip is very close to our heart because Bear has gone for the past two years.  This year he was heading to World Youth Day in Krakow with about 45 travelers from our parish.  At the end of Mass on Sunday evening the parish offered a blessing to these travelers.  MayGod protect them and show them HIS heart!

Bear was up there in that crowd.  We are so excited for him and yet nervous at the same time.

HEB - Decorating Project

All the stories are setting their back to school displays up.  Goobers was at work and as they set the front display they decided that it would look better with the work of some young people.  Goobers brought over some paper bags and put everyone to work!

The display turned out pretty cute, and Goober was happy that she could help the store with the help of her siblings.

Dad's Birthday

We started at the pool in our family day of celebrating dad's birthday!

These kids are so loved by their daddy.  He adores each and everyone one of them.  They all have unique but very cool relationships with him.  To Jason, his birthday isn't about gifts but time with his family. Happy birthday J!
