God has definitely blessed me with these three years of being with Brent. Not only is Brent the best husband that I could have ever asked for, he is my best friend and the one I will spend the rest of my life with. Over the last three years God has been working on my heart to make me a better wife daily. I am becoming a better person because of Brent’s love and his patience with me.

Today marks the three year anniversary for Jess and I. It both seems a long and short while ago that we were betrothed on a beautiful Saturday afternoon, one of two for the month of May that year. With each passing day, I have become more in love with my wife. I am great full to the Lord for giving me Jess. She is my encourager and my best friend. Happy anniversary Jess, I can’t wait for the rest!

Brent’s parents spent their first visit here with us being very busy as there was a lot going on. We had an award ceremony, a college open house, graduation/party, and Mother’s Day. It was great to have them here and involved in everything, but it would have been nice to have one day to relax with them. I felt like we were almost dragging them around everywhere.

Brent did it! He finally graduated from college and I am very proud of him. It may have taken a while to get through, but God had a plan. Everything is coming together and I am so glad that that stage of our lives is over. We woke up fairly early on Saturday morning to get him to the ceremony on time. Brent’s parents and I found some good seating and then hung out for an hour while we waited for the ceremony to begin. Most of the graduates were already in the room before we finally spotted Krista. Then shortly after, we spotted Brent. He was dead last in line! That made it easy to find him and Krista was only one row up and almost exactly in front of him. It was fun watching them smile and enjoy their accomplishments.

So, here is a load of pictures for the events┬ápreceding, during and after the graduation ceremony. This is also the debut for pictures from our new toy, a Nikon D7000 with the 55-300 lens. I don’t have the energy to put my deeper thoughts into this, but rest assured that I will add some as time moves forward. Tomorrow is another busy day starting with Youth Sunday, where we are aiding the youth in leading the service. I am excited to rock the electric-guitar tomorrow, she’s been out of the light for way too long! After church, Jess is making her absolutely amazing chicken pot pies for the Mom’s, exciting! Off to bed I go!
