A.J.’s First College Graduation Ceremony

A.J. and I sat in the front row during the graduation ceremony at my husband’s university. He teaches in the Department of Mass Communications and participated in Fall graduation. A.J. was so excited to see his dad walk down the aisle that he nearly jumped off of my lap when he saw him.

It was a cold fall day and A.J. had just waken up from a cozy nap. I hope the pomp and circumstance of graduation is imprinted into his memory.

Pray, Persist & Prosper!



A.J.’s First Trip to the Pumpkin Farm

Together at Pettit Creek Farms

It was a gorgeous fall afternoon to visit Pettit Creek Farms. They house exotic animals such as zebras, camels and lamas. They also have goats and lambs that you can feed, a corn maze and pony and camel rides. They even had a bounce house for kids.

A.J. was a bit apprehensive at first. He had only seen such animals in his books. To see them and have an opportunity to touch or ride them was a whole different story. Toward the end of our visit, he felt a lot more comfortable and seemed to get a second wind; so much so that he wanted to run unencumbered. By that time however, we were in the parking lot preparing to leave. Oh well, I’m sure he will enjoy it better as he gets a little older.

(Once again, I don’t have many photos. This time, I can’t locate my digital camera. Urghhhhhhh! Luckily I uploaded two photos to Facebook that I’m able to use.)
