Mumzie and I recently had the pleasure of attending the graduation ceremony of a friend.  

Ready to walk the aisle, with his mom helping coordinate

Mr. M. was the official photographer for the ceremony

Receiving the diploma

A hug from his mom

The (according to the Graduate) silly tradition of the hat toss :)


Visiting with the man himself afterwards

Chatting with I. and J. (J. would not look at the camera :)

Looking at their brother's gifts :)

E. helping serve

We were invited to the M.'s home afterwards, and Mrs. M. served us refreshments

A game of Bananagrams

E. and her cousin


"This is fun!"
J.'s grandmother nice thing about this game is that the players help one another!

J. making shapes with the letters 

J. wanted to take a picture of his I helped him :)

Dinner time!

Mumzie and I enjoyed visiting with everyone and hearing stories

The man of the day

Serving ice cream

Mumzie: "Do you like the amount S.A.M. gives you when she serves ice cream?"
S: "Yeess" :D

Pleased with his ice cream


Getting ready for family worship

The last time we were at the M.'s home (almost exactly 2 years ago), we were comparing the height of E. to myself.....

This time, however.....
....we were comparing the height between C. and I! My height is doomed to shortness, I'm afraid. I will forever be the S.O.T.H. :)

Thank you for your hospitality, M. family!

  1. What does S.O.T.H. stand for? I'm guessing the first word is shrimp? :-) It's ok S.A.M. We've got to have some short people, or the world just wouldn't be the same. It would be boring if we were all the same height. ;-) Glad you had a good time with your friends. Looking forward to seeing you this Lord's Day!

    I'll let you know later what S.O.T.H. stands for. :D Thank you for your sweet words about short people....they are most comforting :)
    Can't wait to see you, too!

  3. I am dying to know what S.O.T.H. means too!
