Bama Prepares for Bama

The clock is ticking and high school graduation for Bama is just around the corner (Thursday to be exact). My friends from the Clematis Club hosted a graduation celebration for Bama on Sunday. Bama got some great gifts. There were many ooh's and ahh's, as seen in this video below (Ok trying to figure out how to post it.... )














He will have one cool dorm room at Alabama. And he will be eating good, for a little while anyway...young men can go through some food, ya know. Friends and Family gave him several gifts cards to restaurants, coffee houses and gas cards. He was quite pleased as he opened each card. He actually really enjoyed the cards that gave advice from personal experience of those that have traveled that same road before him. He plans to put those on a bulletin board that he got for his room. It was a wonderful day. I just have to say, to all who attended, to all who made delicious food, to those that brought gifts and delivered hugs....my family sincerely thanks you from the bottom of our hearts! Here are some scenes from the celebration.

Wow, you have some great friends and family!

Bama is such a cutie, I'd be afraid to let him loose with all these young girls around. LOL

Congratulations to him and may he have the best time in both his dorm studying and in college!

Leigh, you are such a great mama! He is one lucky man!

Hugs to you both,
Chandy

Congratulations to Bama! Some days I feel like it was just yesterday I was heading off to college...where the heck does the time go?! If I could do it over I would chill out a bit...I was in such a rush to get out that I didn't take time to enjoy it for the experience that it was.

Congrats to each of you! This is just the beginning for him AND you! I don't know if you are like me or not, but my oldest graduated from high school last year and when he left for college, it nearly took me down! I mourned for him! But I was tough and prevailed, though I cried alot!!

He will love it, you will adjust!

and....by the way....

ROLL TIDE BABY!!
