Caleb Senior 2010

Well, it's been a very busy week in our home. We have just finished a wonderful revival, but this week has been wild to say the least. It seems as though there have been multiple school projects and other activities. Sometimes it feels like going to work is almost a break! (jk). With all of the busyness, I have not had time to blog for a few days. I have however had several ideas of things I want to blog about, so stay tuned!

My oldest son is a high school senior. Just typing this makes me feel so old! It seems like just yesterday I was a senior. Even though graduation is not until May, we are already busy with many senior year activities. Tonight Danny and I worked on his senior ad for the yearbook. I went through many photo albums and scrapbooks to find the "perfect photos". Well, you guessed it, to Mama they're all perfect! He did give me free reign to choose the pictures I wanted as long as I did not put any "embarrassing" pictures in the ad. Well, I assumed this meant, no naked baby pictures, but to a teenage boy it could mean many other things. So I just used my best judgement. Below are some of the pictures that I chose. I must say I was a bit misty-eyed. I think Danny was too, but he didn't let it show. I can already tell that I will need to start stockpiling the Kleenexes before May!

The first picture is Caleb at 6 weeks and the next picture is one of his senior portraits. It just seems like yesterday I dressed him in that little Disney outfit.

In the following picture, you will notice that Caleb has lined up his toy lions on the coffee table. Caleb loved the movie, The Lion King, and his favorite toys were his lions. This picture is extra sweet because he is wearing one of his Papaw's (my Dad's) signature hats. I looked high and low until I found this picture. I finally remembered that it was in a scrapbook.

Caleb has always liked to read comic books. He is about 10 or 11 in this picture. You might not can tell from this picture, but he is playing with his ear. That has been a habit of his since he was a baby.

I had to include a picture of Caleb with Josh and Katie Beth. In fact, there are many pictures of him with Josh since they are only 16 months apart. It was hard to choose from so many pictures, but these are especially sweet to me. Katie Beth is wearing a dress that my Grandma Marie made for my sister, Tobye, when she was two. Tobye wore it in a Valentine Contest at church (she won too, my sister was one cutie patootie!). As you can see, Katie Beth wore it well too!

Okay, now I am no longer misty-eyed, but on the verge of bawling (Mama hormones!). We are so proud of Caleb. God has blessed us with a wonderful Christian young man that desires to do His will. He has a dry sense of humor and is good-natured. He plays the saxophone on our praise and worship team at church and is active in the youth group.  He is earnestly praying for direction as he chooses a career path. Please remember him in your prayers. Pray for me too, that I make it through this year!

Tomorrow night is our high school Homecoming. I hope to catch some good pictures. Have a great weekend!
