2 Down, 2 To Go

Our oldest son, John, graduated from Millsaps College this past Saturday with a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration. His plan is to stay in school and work on his M.B.A. Also, he has another year of eligibility to play football. He starts summer school in 2 weeks, so he'll stay on the family payroll for at least another year.

A sweet family pic after graduation, minus the middle son, who is a sophomore at LSU and had a final Saturday morning, so he couldn't make it. Even though the professor didn't show up for the final after they sat there 45 minutes waiting for him. FPS.

So, after graduation, we went to lunch and gave him his gift, something he has wanted for years, something I mentioned her last week that was a surprise that I was so excited about. Here he is opening up the package. . .

It was pictures of a litter of puppies. He's wanted a Golden Retriever forever. I had found some close by that were born about a month ago and put a deposit down on one, so he had the pick of the litter.

He was so surprised, but a little wary at first because he didn't want to get his hopes up about what the pictures meant.

We went to visit the puppies yesterday. OMG, they were adorable. This is the one he picked out, Mufassa. That's what the owner's little girl named him, but we'll probably change it.

Here's Meg holding one.

This is YS holding the 2 males. There were 7 altogether in the litter, and only one of the males wasn't sold. YS and I are trying to convince his dad that we need the unsold male. I don't think he's going to agree. But they are so cute!
