About Me

My photo
I'm a work in progress. I'm a mom to two, soon to be three, awesome kids that have taught me things I didn't know I needed to learn. I'm married to a kind and handsome man that I genuinely love to be with. I like to be around interesting people and enjoy learning from others. I'm quirky, energetic, have a glass that's usually half full (of wine) and am spontaneous when it fits into my plans. My life is much slower than it once was and even though I sometimes miss the old days, I never take these new days for granted. So, I've given up alot of things in order to give more of myself to my family ... and they better appreciate it. I mean, I expect nothing in return for my selfless love.

As Nate walked across the stage I yelled, "Yeah, Baby! Yeeaahhh!" and then I cried.

See his honor cords??!!

Advisors and school friends
Time for presents and cards
My parents got him a Grace College frame for his diploma but the matte wasn't with it so it was just a really expensive, empty frame ... waawaaaah.
(They did get the matte and the dimploma has been framed)
I guess watching Nate read cards bored the life out of his dad.
I think he fell asleep there in the background. I swear, those Wessels' can fall asleep anytime, anywhere ... it's a gift that many would love to possess.
It was such a great day. So many people came to his open house. You'll just have to trust me on this one because I didn't take any pictures. :( We really appreciated all the people that came out to help celebrate!

I was going to write about all the sacrifices we made for this day to happen ... especially that first year. Ouch. But, I'll just leave it at this: we never gave up. Nate was committed and he saw through to a long-time dream. I'm so proud of him .... I'm also really thankful to have him back :)
