Sunday Snapshot-The Phone Call

There is only one reason I would run to get my camera
and snap pictures of my son on the phone.

It seemed like a very important phone call with all the "Yes mams" he was saying.

What could make him so happy?

And scratch his head in disbelief?

He had to call his dad and share the news.

Dad was very happy and came right home.

He had to go change his shirt.

Greg and I both cried!

It was the news we had prayed for...

hoped for...

and knew our son had dreamed about for a long time.

He had to tell Emily.

She also was so happy.

Then he called his grandparents

He nervously played with the spices as the news settled in.

We are all so proud!

There are only a few people who have their childhood dreams come true.

A few more phone calls.

Out to dinner to celebrate!

Yes the appointment to the US Air Force Academy came through.
That was our Senator who called to tell him the news.

He has always wanted to serve his country.

He has always wanted to attend the USAFA!

Congratulations Stephen!
We are all so proud of you!

We love you!

Adam continues to do well. Today is "Panthers Day". If you coming to the hospital today you must be in Panther attire. You will be featured on the blog tomorrow. Just keeping it fun for my boy. If you are just here for Sunday Snapshot I should let you know Adam had MACE procedure and hypospadias repair surgery last Friday.
