Long Long time ago

Little did I know, 28 years ago that by this time the next day I would have a nearly 9 pound bouncing baby boy. Being over a week late, I was hoping to have him soon!

Labor pains woke me up about 6am on July 20, 1981 and about 14 hours later, here he was.

Being single 95% of the time Clay was growing up was a challenge for both of us but I think we made a pretty good team.

Birthday's with friends and family.
Lots and lots of trips all over the place...
Tenkiller Oklahoma to visit with Go Granny's family.

Growing up with his best buddy Fred the Dog.
Ranger games,

Cowboy games,

Hiking up a mountain in central Colorado and to visit the Air Force Academy.

A trip to San Diego to Sea World, the San Diego Zoo and out on a Whale watch.
Then a big trip skiing with new family.

Graduating from UNT.
Now teaching high school and married... I don't feel like I've aged till I look at these pictures. so many memories.

Where does the time go.....?
