This young man, trying on his wedding suit, is my son, Andrew.

This Saturday is his 25th birthday.

.....and, we are very happy to be going to his wedding next week!!!!

In getting ready to go, I have looked through old albums, Mary, the bride wanted a few photos for a bit of entertainment at the wedding reception....looking back...



I found myself remembering a lot of good times!






Andrew's traits-

A wonderfully athletic and happy child! Easy to be with and dependable!
Not to mention curious and creative....he took his "air Jordan" tennis shoes apart just to see how they worked!
[I wasn't too happy about that one, considering how expensive they were!!!!] He loved to construct and devise things...one year Santa gave him duct tape in his stocking!
So for the moment, I am lost in Nostalgia. There are good and bad things about being here....and I cannot stay too long because the NOW moment is calling.
NOW, I need to pack for the trip, clean up my house, rest from that last weekend of doing overnight inventory shifts where I work and get ready to return to work (normal daytime shifts) through this weekend!
So I may not be blogging as much as usual....but I will be thinking of things to post once I return!

Your son is very handsome and sounds like a wonderful person. I enjoyed your trip down memory lane. You have a delightful family. Don't stress yourself out too much and be sure to relax once you are on your way. Have a great time at the wedding and if we don't hear from you until you get back, well, that's fine!
