When I was growing up we had a tradition in our family for the last day of school---strawberry shortcake! It is something I have carried on with my boys. When they were little I would make up a giant shortcake and that was all we would have for dinner. Just strawberry shortcake until we were about to pop! It was fun.
But now it's for after dinner, and we've added sparkling cider to toast the boys with for a job well done. It's sort of fitting as Kevin had his last day in high school today. AJ had his last day a week ago. Both boys have done so well, and I'm so proud of them. Can't wait to raise that glass and cheer their accomplishments.
Stan sliced up the strawberries and the house is filled with their sweet aroma. Smells like summer to me. It also smells like the end of school and the beginning of .... possibilities! Can't wait!
When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? To surrender dreams--this may be madness; to seek treasure where there is only trash. Too much sanity may be madness! But maddest of all--to see life as it is and not as it should be.
I have been married for over 27 years to my husband Stan. We have two sons, AJ (26) and Kevin (24). We have two crazy dogs named Jasper and Riley. I love my life, my family and have a strong faith that directs me.
