A Lot Going On...

We have had a lot going on!!! First of all, Justin graduated from Auburn University with his Masters in Biology. He is now officially a PhD student at Clemson University. We are so proud of his accomplishments. The last 3 years have flown by and I can't believe it's time to begin this new chapter in our lives.

This past weekend we had the opportunity to go to Wilmington, NC (my favorite place ever) to watch Jillian graduate from UNCW's nursing school and have Jude's first beach trip. We were able to visit my wonderful roommates from college (who were willing to drive all the way from Greensboro and Raliegh just to meet Jude) as well as other friends, including the Alberts clan. Above is sweet Kyle meeting Jude. They loved each other. Kyle kept putting his finger near Jude's mouth and saying "Charlie bit me" (the You Tube video clip). It was so cute.

Jude celebrated his 2 month birthday while in Wilmington. He was a trooper at the beach! He looked absolutely adorable in his beach hat and sunglasses. He did not like the freezing water, but he liked playing and sleeping on the beach towels under the pier.

We had a beautiful beach weekend and it really made me miss being in Wilmington. If we ever had the opportunity to move back, I would in a heart beat! (As you can see, had to get a tankini for this summer...Not sure if my tummy will ever be the same, but the outcome was totally worth it. Hopefully the Shred and P90X ab ripper will help...I don't know though, I think I just ate 10 oreos.)

Even though the beach visit with family and friends was wonderful, the most wonderful thing was celebrating in Jillian's graduation. She has worked so hard and we are so very proud of her! She graduated as a North Carolina Nursing Scholar and is officially a nurse at Duke University Medical Hospital in the Pediatric Bone Marrow Unit. Needless to say, she's going to really make a difference in the lives of those sick babies.

Here is Jillian getting officially pinned as a nurse...we are so proud of you!

I am finishing out the school year at AHS this week and next Monday-Wednesda and preparing for a visit to meet Mamaw Peggy and the family in Tennessee over Memorial Day weekend! So excited!
