She's baaaaaack

Holy Cow it's been a long time! You can't say I don't have a good reason...I'm coming out of the fog now and have to say that the main reason I haven't been blogging is because our desktop died right before the move and I HATE typing on a laptop. Anybody want to send me a keyboard to plug into the laptop as a house warming present? Anyway, time to play catch up. Also, I think that once I catch up with a few Las Cruces posts...I'm going to make a new blog. It won't be private, but it's an effort to be a little safer online.Without further ado....

Ben GRADUATED!!!!!!! Yayyayayayayayayayayayayayay! It was a great day! I LOVE graduations, maybe just as much as weddings.(Except don't get me started on Preschool and Kinder graduations!) It's geeky, but when I'm at a graduation, I think about all the effort that all those students put in over the last years and it is AWESOME! I am so proud of him :) I thought my heart was going to explode when I saw him walk up and get 'hooded'! It was very emotional, and kinda funny. They should have provided a step ladder for his professor!

James fell asleep during the ceremony. Who can blame him? There are only so many snacks and diversions. He was leaning against papa who was trying to get him more comfortable. I tried to adjust him, the movement woke him, he was startled and YELLED, "HEY, THAT'S NOT FAIR! DON'T TOUCH ME!" Yeah, right in the middle in the graduation. My dad couldn't stop laughing and I was mortified. Granted, it was in the middle of a basketball arena, but still, all the people around us were wondering what the heck was going on. I have to thank Marie with the AWESOME camera for getting shots that I never could with my sad little camera.

After the ceremony we ran home and continued to pack. We took a break that evening to honor the graduate with one last dinner at La Posta. Yes, we had to wait 1 1/2 hours but we enjoyed our time in the Mesilla Plaza. We went home and you guessed it, packed and packed some more.

Ben is squatting as much as possible so they can reach over his head to put the hood on.

I think that when you graduate, it feels like you've sprouted wings and can finally FLY!! Congrats! You've surely earned it.
