I haven't mentioned my boys much lately (with the exception of Griff, but much less of him too) .. Lord knows they would die if they knew I was 'talking' about them!
I lasted posted about #2 graduating from Ole Miss. He really had a hard time with his college years ending and just did not want to come home! Not that he doesn't love us and all (his words), but he was adamant about staying in the south (true south, not Florida). Although he did have a few offers here locally, he pursued jobs up south and I am happy to say he got 'the' job! He started just last week and moved directly from Oxford to Atlanta. So proud of him, as well as #1 .. two boys out of college .. both gainfully & happily employed!!! Such a blessing! Such happy parents!!
Just a few days ago, I saw this quote posted on the Ole Miss FB page. It sums up my Hotty Toddy, Rebel boy to a t!!
"The University gives a diploma and regretfully terminates tenure, but one never graduates from Ole Miss." - Frank E. Everett, Jr.
(iphone photo he sent me .. had to crop out a certain someone :), not sure if he would be happy about me posting the full pic here)
As for Griff, he has been traveling lots this summer for lacrosse. He is currently on his 3rd trip up north - this time at The University of Delaware for the Battle of the Hotbeads. This was a Florida elite team that he tried out for and made during the spring. All about college coaches and recruiting now! So, so proud of him .. he made the top all star team for this tournament. Of course, being a teen, his parent communication skills are lacking!! He never even bothered to mention it. I had to go to the website to check. Picking him up this evening at the airport. I sure have missed him!! We have had a bit of a preview this summer of being 'empty nesters' .. I do not like it at all and don't know how I will cope when my last goes away to college!
