she’s a ramblin’ wreck from georgia tech

Yesterday @bethanyswinford graduated from georgia tech and she did it in 4 years!  It’s hard to express how proud I am of her.  Bethy overcame several big obstracles during her career at GT.  She showed a lot our heart — determination and strength of character.  Below is a portion of a note I wrote her:

But I didn’t know the measure
of your relentlessness to achieve
grit and determination
your never-ending desire
or the size of your heart

I’m so proud of you
for not quitting
and showing me more
than I ever dreamed
your toughness and sensitivity
for being YOU!

Congratulations Bethany!!!!!

family work project

Saturday we had a Family Work Project (FWP), organized by #1 (Felicia).  Our objectives were: prep and sod the front yard, create 2 new areas for plants and flowers, and build a small patio for potted plants.

The work was hard, the weather was hot, and teamwork rules!  Here are a few pictures of our FWP!

Becca - Cutting Sod!

#1 worked longer & harder me!

MISSING IN ACTION

Bethy - No show for FWP - she's the smart one!

We had a great productive and good day and the results were awesome.  Special thanks to Felicia for planning and preparing, Ryan for doing the really hard work, and Becca for jumping in and helping out.  Bethany would have been with us too, but she was returning from an overnight camping trip.

I have a great family!  I love my fam!
