The Newly Enlisted
Last week Son #1 officially enlisted in the Army. I'm really proud of him and this step he's taking in his life, yet at the same time I'm scared to death something might happen to him. Probably a reaction of most parents with kids in the military... I hope this fear will ebb eventually. Someone please tell me it will!
He reports to boot camp in September...
The New Graduate
Last Saturday, Son #2 graduated high school. For the event, we bought him grown-up clothes. Fancy pants, tie, shoes. Things he can keep for years (if he ever stops growing!). Suddenly I could see the man he was going to be. And I couldn't be prouder of him (and also a little scared to let him go be that man).

The Music of the Seventies
Last week I was driving Baby Girl to her last day of school (thank goodness she has two years left!!!), and we were seat-dancing in the car to some random 70's song that I can't even remember the title of, but it was very disco-y and peppy.
Baby Girl looks at me and says, "Sure, the 70's were full of government distrust and social turmoil, but they had good music!"
I love my kids.
