Hey y'all! Hope everyone makes/made it home safely! We got home at 2:00AM, on Sunday - LONG drive, but I would do it all again for either of my kids!
Bonnie - It was nice to meet you - even if only with a wave to each other - ha! We were able to meet Billy when we were at the airport on Saturday morning. He was very pleasant! Josh was wanting us to meet him at PIR, but of course it was too crazy and we just wanted to get out of there and spend some time with him - so glad we went to the airport! I hope things go smoothly for your little family as you transition to the next level!
Charity - It was a pleasure to meet you as well. You have such a bubbly personality and I'm sure fun to be around, though I don't know if I could keep up with you! lol I don't know where things will go with you and Joe, but I hope things work out the way you want them to.
Cindy - Once again, I was happy to meet you, too! lol I'm happy Dillon made it through and is now ready to move on to A-School. I hope he continues on the path to success, as I'm sure he will!
Well, it's past my bedtime and I need to go get some sinus medicine - bleck. Hope you all have a wonderful week! Take care!
