My youngest child has Graduated High School!! Hallelujah!!!

Well, I had my youngest son graduate from high school last night and I have to admit we held our breath until the very end!! I am so thankful he accomplished this adventure. He has plans to attend a Technical College in the fall. He is accepted and finally realized he could and was capable of furthering his education this early spring. I love this boy with my whole heart and am so happy for him!! Here he is with one of his best buds. Truly a celebration for them!! Eliah's on the right!

I was having a computer glitch and wasn't able to upload any pics to my blog, but that has now been resolved thanks to the help of my wonderful son-in-law Johnathan. As you know, Celia and Johnathan are expecting their first child!! Due date is July 18th!! Here she is visiting us this past weekend. 

As you can see, she definately has a baby bump and I got to feel the little one moving. I just love it!!

I also have been doing some sewing. For Eliah I made him a quilt for graduation. He loves hunting, fishing, being outdoors, and John Deere equipment so I made a quilt with him completely in mind. Here it is. 

           Here are some of the focus fabrics for his quilt. All things that have a meaning to him.

Pat Bravo a fabric designer with Art Gallery Fabrics had a call for people to make Project Linus Quilts from scraps that she sent out to people. I had the honor to receive some of her fabrics scraps and make a quilt trying to show off her fabrics. It is a simple pattern, but I feel very effective and I love how it turned out! I mailed it out to her this week. 

Eliah also had an FFA banquet where he, being a graduate, passed on his Presidency of the Durand FFA to one of his other best buds McKenzie Schuh. They have been friends since they were wee ones. I am glad they are still close friends. Here are some pics. 

This is Bryce Pittman, Kenzie Schuh and Eliah Traun

Here is Eliah conducting the meeting. 

This is Eliah receiving one of his several awards from the Future Farmers of America. 
He plans on a career in agriculture. 

Well, I think that is plenty enough now. So much more to come. Eliah's Grad Party is next Sunday May 31st. Lots of work ahead of me!! More later!
