Graduation Pictures

Well, this has been an action packed week. My middle son graduated from High School on Friday, and Friday night to Saturday morning was at a school based party, which I had the pleasure of helping out with – I got up at 4 to drive an hour there to help with breakfast and clean up. So, I haven’t had much time to post this weekend.

We had front row seats, from left to right, myself, Katherine, Christopher, and Ed’s girlfriend Kelly. Hint for photographers, if you want your son to look toward’s you and the camera with a smile on his face, bring girlfriend to celebration.

celebration!!!!!!, they also had confetti poppers, but that went so fast that we didn’t capture it on camera.

Then there was the all night party. I came upon a scene of over a hundred tired teens waiting for the sunrise.

Found Edward and Kelly coming down from the mountain where they were waiting for the sunrise, you can see how tired they were.

Waiting for the bus to transport them back to the school.

A good night, a great graduation, and I can’t believe that in a few months college for two of my three. Sigh, they grow so fast.

About Heather Marsten

Welcome to Heather's Blog. I'm looking forward to meeting you and checking out your sites. I just moved about nine years of material over from another blog site, Xanga, who may close down mid-July. At first I was disappointed to make the move because I had a lifetime membership at Xanga and had to spend weeks transferring posts. But now I'm thrilled. Already I've met new bloggers and read many new websites. Blogging is a wonderful way to expand my horizons and garner new ideas. I'm a happily married mom of three young adults. My husband and I are proud to watch our children grow and venture out into the world. My daughter is still in college but my two sons have graduated. One has a job and the other just graduated and is in the process of finding a job in his field, physics. Anyone know of any jobs out there? I'm proud of our children and love watching them grow and mature. They've become fine, compassionate, and loving people. Empty nest? Nah, I'm too busy to let an empty nest bother me. Not enough hours in the day. My husband and I enjoy quiet time together and I have many interests to pursue - one of which is blogging :D I am a born-again believer and love God. As you read this blog, you will discover that Bible studies thrill me. There is so much wisdom contained between the covers of the Bible and I am fortunate to sit under the teachings of a remarkable pastor, Pastor Don Moore. Members of our church (Living Word Chapel in West Hurley, New York) are encouraged to teach and there are visiting pastors who stop by our church, I also study the Bible on my own and love sharing what I learn. One other passion is writing. My current work in process is a memoir. A scene from my memoir was published in a book called: Heavenly Company: Entertaining Angels Unaware - an anthology of angelic encounters compiled by Cecil Murphy. I'm hoping my memoir will encourage other survivors of abuse. I grew up in a home filled with abuse, including incest. For most of my life I was searching for something that would fill the void of not being loved by my parents. I tried many ways to find that love -- therapy, relationships, occult studies, and keeping my life so filled I had no way to think about my past. It was only when I discovered God that I was able to put the pieces of my life back together and walk forward in a joyous life. My nickname - wondering has changed from wondering where the heck God was in my life, to wondering what incredible adventure is going to happen next. I hope you enjoy my site. Please say hi, share some thoughts, and ask questions. I look forward to meeting you and checking out your sites. Have a blessed day. Heather
