Trip to Arkansas for Maggie's Graduation...

Thursday we loaded up and headed to Arkansas for Maggie's graduation. I can hardly believe that she is old enough to graduate from high school. It really seems like yesterday that she was born. It really made me realize how quickly time goes by, and that it will seem like no time that my girls will be donning a cap and gown. It was so good to get to see family and celebrate this special time with Maggie. We are all so proud of her, and we look forward to all that God has in store for her future.
Cheesing it up in the car on the way. Selah and Myla both traveled very well....much better than I expected, to be honest!
Selah was cheesing it up too!
Don't know if you heard, but there was a shootout in West Memphis on Thursday. We came through during it, and they had completely shut down the inbound traffic into Memphis. Thank the Lord we were going the other way. The traffic was literally stopped for MILES. People were standing outstide of their cars just talking to each other. It was terrible, and it was such a tragedy for the West Memphis Police Department.
Sleeping children = successful travel...

Myla loves Maggie! When we are there, she wants to play with her the whole time. She is lucky to have such a wonderful aunt!

After Selah's nap on Friday, she was so smiley and happy, so I couldn't resist snapping these pictures!
I love this picture!! This is Jacey, my first cousin Eleanor's little girl. She was playing peek a boo with Selah, and she got a great smile out of it!
