A Bitter Sweet Goodbye...

It was bitter sweet saying goodbye to Michael, as he left to report to his duty station, in Georgia!  The bitter part is knowing that he is going to Iraq in July, but the sweet part is seeing how my baby has grown into a man! Not just a man.....but one who loves and adores his wife, Jaymie.....and one who is willing to fight for his country!  
This was taken as we were leaving to the airport.

Making every moment count.......grabbing another hug in the grocery store!  Aw....I'm tearing up as I type this.

Surprise!  I know, I know....a little weird taking a pic of Jaymie coming out of the restroom, but I couldn't help myself.....I mean after all the camera was in my hand, what was I to do?  Lol

In the airport parking garage.

That gentleman on the right, tried his best to get out of the picture, but he just wasn't fast enough.  Lol

I had to get a shot of my honey!

A very sweet, tender moment!  I love candid shots like this!

This picture warms my heart every time I look at it!  Don't you see love written all over his face?

What a beautiful couple!  I had to get one last shot as Andy and I were leaving.  We wanted Michael and Jaymie to have some time alone, before they had to say goodbye, so we gave our hugs and kisses and we were on our way.

We Are So Proud!

This is my free collage from Walgreens that I posted about yesterday.  These are just some of my favorite pics that I took at Michael's Turning Blue Ceremony and his Graduation in Georgia!  The Turning Blue Ceremony was held at Fort Benning and the Graduation was held at the National Infantry Museum.
Marching in for the Turning Blue Ceremony
We went to the motel so he could take off those funky (or should I say geeky) glasses that the army issued him and put in his contacts......he was so relieved! LOL
Picked up his gear and now he's chompin' at the bit to get to Atlanta airport, where he will catch his plane and be on his way, to see his wife Jaymie!  Yippee.....bootcamp is over!!!
And now Mama is happy!  :) He is home for 24 days and then he reports to his duty station at Fort Stewart, Georgia. As soon as he gets there, he will find out if his company is just returning from Iraq or just getting ready to deploy, to Iraq.

Free Photo Collage at Walgreens!

Walgreens is offering a free 8x10 collage for Mother's Day, but you need to hurry because today is the last day!  I just found out about it on my niece's blog New Eyedea Photography where she posted her collage.  Y'all really should check out her blog......her photography blows me away!  She really has an eye for it and I just love her creativity......she truly is gifted! Just check out her gallery here and you will see what I mean.

On another note, we're back from our son's graduation from bootcamp in Georgia and we had a nice trip, but we are exhausted.  I'm finding the older I get the harder it is to travel, it takes so much out of me and it just takes longer for me to bounce back. LOL Getting old stinks sometimes!  Right now we're just spending time with Michael and his wife Jaymie, until he has to report to his duty station, so please forgive me if I haven't replied to any comments that you may have left me. I just want to spend as much time with my son as possible before he leaves and I'm sure you all understand.  I'll be posting some pics soon!
