Two Down, One to Go

This picture of Brian was taken at Christmas time in 2007, he was getting ready to transfer to UC Davis.  Brian is my youngest son, who is graduating next month, June 12th.  The things you do for your kids when you're trying to get them through college.  After lots of coupons, more feathers than chicken for dinner, and too many phone calls, hearing the words, "I need money".  Yes, Brian is graduating.  When we moved Brian up there, Dave and I drove with a mattress on top of our heads, the car was jammed pack with Brian's things.  On the day we were getting ready to leave him,  Brian's cell phone broke and I handed him mine . . and then to come home, only to find out that our oldest son Davey crashed my husband's car while we were gone.  The grace of God got us through those days, I'm laughing now.  Believe it or not those are some good memories . . . as the adventure continues, one more to go with Cassandra.

I actually had another posting of his graduation coming up, which was deleted earlier, but he did not care for the photo I had and probably referring to him as my little guy didn't go over to well . . sorry about that Brian.  Mom loves you anyways!


  1. It is a wonderful accomplishment...both for your son and you as parents!

  2. Congrats to all of you!!
    The graduation is on my birthday!!
    Thanks for the visit!

  3. Oh I was wondering why I couldn't connect to that other post! You're such a good Mom, giving up your cell phone! It is fun to look back on memories with fondness and laughter, even though they didn't seem so great at the time. Cute post! ~Lili

  4. True story...once I plunged my foot into a bucket of water and about fell and killed myself! Close, but I'm still here. :-)
    Congrats to Brian and Mom! I don't care how old he is or how tall, he will always be your little guy! Tell him Aunt Cheryl said to get over it!
    xo, Cheryl

  5. Congratulations to your son...and you! My step-son is getting married June 18th; we're still spending money:) Don't you just love a good celebration?!

  6. Congratulations on the "two down"! Really, in this day and age, that's really something to be
    proud of. Wishing your son the best in his future.

  7. Awww...this post is the essence of you Sandra Dee. You love those kids unconditionally and they are better people for it! I'm inspired as a mother and only hope that my children turn out as well rounded as yours.



  8. Congratulations Sandy! We could all learn from your example. Take care!
