Gabriel thru the Years

Just a few pictures over the past 21 years -

Happy 21st Birthday to Gabriel

Today is Gabriel's 21st birthday. Where did the years go? Hannah and his friends at college celebrated with him. I wish we could be together on his birthday. Instead, he's studying for a couple of big tests and we have having pizza for lunch in his honor. Happy Birthday Gabriel!! I am blessed to be your mom and I'm so thankful that you have great friends to celebrate with.

Here are a few pictures. Hannah's not in them. I'm guessing she was behind the camera!

Wedding Reception

A few years ago - 25 or so - I taught a little boy named Randy. He was a sweet kid. Did pretty well in school, at least I don't remember him doing poorly. After his 4th grade year, I got married and moved around a few times and lost contact with most of my students. When we returned to VA, I learned that he was in Hollywood! He played a goofy deputy in "Good Intentions" , a friend (or cousin?) of Elvis in the CBS mini series of Elvis and a few other things.

He got married last week and had a reception tonight for local friends and family. And we were invited! It was fun to talk with him and meet his sweet wife. You just never know what kids will grow up to be. I know I never thought when I was teaching that class that any of them would end up in Hollywood.

At the wedding reception of Randy McDowell. I taught him in 3rd and 4th grade.
