February Snow

We had  a beautiful snow here in February 2014!



Nana's Memorial

December 26, 2013 Nana joined Dado in heaven.  We had a family graveside service in Durant with Shaun officiating and Cathlena singing.   A couple of nights before her service we made a memory board for her service.  It was a good time of sharing memories and stories.

Jessie Starts College at OBU

Oklahoma Baptist University is in Shawnee Oklahoma only an hour and a half from us, but it seemed like thousands of miles away.   Jessie started her freshman year in August 2013 and what a greeting the freshmen get at as they arrive at OBU.  As we pulled up to the dorm students rush out, rock the car, grab stuff out of the car and carry it to her room.  We were unloaded in about 10 minutes!

After getting Jess settled in her room we attended the parents meeting and then gathered with all the other parents and freshman to say goodbye, one of the hardest things I've done.

It has been a long time since I've blogged…..a lot has happened since the last blog.  Jessie started college, what a day that was, Mom passed away in December 2013, we miss her, I retired in June 2014…it has been a year full of change.  I am going to add some pictures to catch us up to date and then I will post to the blog on a regular basis.

Allen School Awards Ceremony 2013!

This was Jessie's last awards ceremony at Allen High school.....so proud of her and her accomplishments!  I took lots of pictures!

Jessie, Josh and Shelby were chosen as student representatives to the Citizens Bank Board for their senior year.  They attended a bank board meeting every month through the school year.  They were honored with a certificate.

Jessie received the Lion's Club Student of the Month Award for the month of March and the Elk's Club  Student of the Month for the month of January.


The Masonic Lodge of Allen honors a senior each year as the Student of Today -for outstanding scholarship, leadership, citizenship and integrity....

Jessie was named Valedictorian,  was named to the Superintendent's Honor Roll, the Oklahoma Honor Roll and received a scholarship from Cameron University and Oklahoma State University

 Jessie was presented the Wayne & Pat Bullard Scholarship by Leslie Costner the school counselor and the Bullard's daughter.

Jessie received  the President's Academic Scholarship from OBU, where she will start her freshman year in August

I think the award that meant the most to Jessie was the one that her Principle,  Mr Scroggins nominated her for.  All the high schools in the United States can nominate one student from their school who excels in learning, citizenship, leadership and integrity!  

Good Job Jessie!
