Dear are officially a permanent licensed driver now!

Driving for an extra period of 2 years and earning straight A's in college and being on the Dean's list has helped tremendously to lower your insurance costs for being added to my that is a good thing! I knew you had passed when you came "running" back across the parking lot with a big smile on your face! I am very proud of you and so happy you finally accomplished this! We went out to celebrate at Domino's Pizza since you had not eaten there since December 2017! THEN we stopped and picked up a cell phone for you as  you now will need one if you are out driving by yourself here and there and for down the road on your own or working..etc.

I was just looking at this photo of you the other day and wondering where all that time has gone. I know that little boy is still somewhere deep down inside of you....but wow...time is flying by and you are making huge strides to get out on your own one day.

I love you Noah and am SUPER happy for you and proud of you for all you have worked for an accomplished in your life so far!

Dear Noah.........

 These are 2 photos you took with your camera at grandma and grandpa's house....a cute little bird came up on their windowsill to eat some bird seed and you snapped a shot or two.

I know you are anxiously awaiting some more extra money to come along so we can get your new gaming PC built. SOON..soon...soon....

I love you!

Your belated 19th birthday party at Clara's in Richmond, Indiana, along with a few other trips

Well we finally were able to get over to Clara's for a small belated get together for your 19th birthday. You had really wanted to go there for your birthday for pizza but the weather had not cooperated for everyone and then the next time we planned it a few were sick. So 2 of your aunties came and we had a good time just the 4 of us. The pizza and cake were good too. We went to Warm Glow Candle after that and Centerville Antique Mall and had a great outing. 

We take your photo every year we can at Warm Glow Candle with their giant Santa sculpture out front. You are now up to his shoulder!

I only come up to Santa's elbow! 

On another extreme...the antique mall had a giant chair which you looked tiny compared to it lol.

I love you lots  Noah. You are registered for your spring college courses now and we went and picked up your textbooks this week. You got straight A's on your last semester courses. You are doing very well working towards your degree in business management!

Happy 19th Birthday and I hope and pray you have many, many more to come!

Love you always,

Dear Noah.......I got a birthday card from you this year....

which was extremely special for me. I believe it was the first official card you ever bought for me...and what made this even more special was the fact that you bought it clear back last December when we separated at a store to do our individual stocking stuffer shopping for each other. I guess you figured you would not be out shopping away from me again before my birthday so you bought that card 7 months ahead of time.  You then hid it from me until I woke up on my  birthday to get ready for work and there was the envelope on my desk.

What a way to start my day. You went to so much effort to do this!

Dear have officially graduated high school!!

Like when did that happen?? SO hard to believe that you are old enough to be driving and finished with high school AND have 10 college credit hours already completed towards your associates degree in business management!

We had a nice small family get together at CiCi's Pizza to celebrate you graduating......per your request as you LOVE CiCi's Pizza. I think you ate almost an entire pizza by yourself!

You have qualified for grants to go to college so you are already registered for fall and winter courses. You will be going to school full time. You are also considering getting a job.........and I am very proud of  you and all your accomplishments in life so far. You have certainly come a long way!

Here are a couple pics from your graduation party.

I love you Noah!

You got a nice leather journal and pen/pencil set as part of your gift from Uncle Chris and Aunt Rita who could not make it up for your graduation.

Dear Noah........

well...the days are moving by quickly and you are getting A's and B's in your college you will  need to decide what you want to do next..lots of decisions to make and possibilities to think about!

I have to wonder most every day where the time has gone....and how you could possibly have gone from that cute little boy to a nice looking young man.

I love you very much Noah!
