Brendon Graduates From Drug Court

I have waited for this day! Brendon graduates from Drug Court!
This poor kid has had some serious obstacles in his life.
He took life by the horns and tamed his addiction.
Here he is going through the graduation line
He asked me to be his speaker. It was really hard and, of course, I cried. But I was in good company, all of the parents cried. 
I feel like it was a special bond though.
Proud mama moment!
Proud family moment!
These are his dog tags that he can wear all of the time to remind himself how strong he is and to never let his addiction take control again.
Brendon and his diploma
and his coin

Here is the program

the proud graduates
I am very proud of you, Brendon! I know you have worked long and hard on this one. Remember who you are (my son!) and don't ever forget that you are worth it and nothing else is worth more than your life! Love Mom!

Starvation 2016

I didn't get many pictures, but it was a really nice weekend. We had cloudbursts that would DRENCH us for five minutes, then it would be sunny. What a wild weather weekend! Here is Dave, Tater-Bug, and Brynley having a swing.

 
Jess and I pal-ing around!
 
Look at that sunset!
Turned out to be the last camping trip of 2016 for the Morleys. It was awesome!
