Show and Tell

 Hi Friends,

I have a few fun things to share with you. I decided to call it show and tell.

One Big Tomato

 Wisconsin Maple Root Beer

Stick or Caterpillar 

It is a caterpillar. 

2020 Graduation Party

We finally got to celebrate our 2020 graduate.

My mom created this collage of photos of Atticus.

Plan A ~  we were going to have a graduation party for family and friends. The party was scheduled in early June. The big bad virus came and with that a lock down.

 Plan  B ~ we were going to have a family only party in late July. My sister ended up needing gallbladder surgery. And scheduling any kind of surgery during 2020 has its own set of challenges.

And to top it off, our county had a spike in COVID cases the week of the party.

Plan C ~ We would gather together during Labor Day weekend with family and celebrate.

Sam was deployed to Kenosha. He returned home Friday night. 

We all celebrated together Sunday afternoon. 


  1. I'm glad you finally were able to get together. The only way I knew this is a caterpillar is because you posted it. What does it turn into? Is the Maple Root Beer good?

  2. Well finally. Happy graduation to Atticus. What adorable kid pictures. I don't know about you, but if I look at my kid pics to long, I cry ...missing those sweet baby faces. LOL. So glad your boys are at home and school. Blessings to all, xoxo, Love to all, Susie
