hakuna matata

a little cupcake safari celebration was in order last night....
thank-you diane for the lovely cupcakes.
pardon my fuzzy photo.
I never imagined 19 years ago that one of my sons would be an ROTC cadet and have the privilege of traveling to Tanzania for the CULP program.  He left today and I can hardly wait for him to return with many stories.  Part of this cultural program is to increase the humanitarian efforts of our ROTC cadets.  He will be there to teach children english and to learn about their culture.
I think about my sons and look forward to the day they are Fathers.

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads all over the world and to my Dad in Kentucky.

Yes, it is wonderful to watch sons become fathers--my oldest is the amazing father of three adorable little girls and boy is he busy, involved, proud and "in-love" with each of them. Love the cupcakes. Congratulations to your son. xoxo Mary
