My beautiful cousin, Rachel, came over last night for dinner. She had wonderful news to tell us! She is currently a senior in High School and is excited to graduate in May. She was debating between attending the University of Arkansas, which is my alma mater (along with other members of our family), or attending college in Russelville at a smaller school. David and I really wanted her to choose UofA just because we know first hand what a fabulous school it is. We said nothing, however, to sway her decision. Last night when she came over for dinner she announced that she was the newest member of the Arkansas Razorbacks Marching Band!! We were so thrilled! This is a huge honor, with a tough audition, and lots of competition. She beat out many, many other flute players in order to achieve this goal. As a family, we can't wait to see her on the field and on the jumbo tron at all the Hog games. She and David will have a year together on campus, which they are very excited about. She will live on campus in a greek house- we love that she will still be close to us! So, for those of you NWA people, look for the cute blonde with the flute this coming fall!
Farmington Prom- 2008
Prairie Grove Prom- 2008
Today at school, the office delivered a really sweet bouquet of roses to my classroom. The card had no signature, but it was David's handwriting. He is so funny- only David would send flowers without dropping a name. It was very sweet. He is really fabulous at sending flowers for no reason. After school, I called Rachel to see how school went today for her, and she thanked me profusely for the flowers she had received at school today! I laughed! She said David didn't sign her card, but that it read,...."Jessica and I are so proud of you..." somewhere and she knew it was David. So David scored major double points today! Two bouquets of roses to two ladies! He is on a roll.
Lastly, the weather here is getting so warm. Thunderstorms usually rock the house in the night, but the late afternoons are really warm and breezy. David hung, for our Anniversary in April, two wrought iron hooks on our cedar and bought hanging plants. It was a nice anniversary present (he also picked out a purse and sunglasses on his own too.) With the weather nice though, the plants have really blossomed. I smile everyday I pull down into the driveway.
