Congratulations Brandon, Class of 2009!

This Saturday is a big day for my brother Brandon. He is graduating from GBS majoring in music. I am not going to be able to be there to see him receive his diploma...and I am really bummed about that but I wanted to take a moment and say how PROUD I am of him. He has always been one that has pushed himself a bit more thru life. He also was one...if it wasn't going to be perfect then he didn't want to do it. He was hilarious as a teen and would spend more time in front of a mirror doing his hair than I would. But I will say that he has turned out to be a pretty handsome and classy guy!

Here are a few pictures (he will probably kill me when he sees these...good thing I am still pregnant and he wouldn't want to harm his niece in anyway.) I wish I had some Highschool pictures, but I don't have any on my computer at the time.

College years...and still Dad sidekick.
Maybe I will be a Football Player? He got this outfit for Christmas one year and the boys loved playing football...they would pretend they were pro's!!!

Umm....Brandon I think you got in the wrong closet to finish getting ready for church.

He has always had music talent....although when it came to practice time as kids....well I won't share all my "dirty" secrets!

Sleeping....something he does quite well. (somethings never change)

A spiffy dresser even as a child

Playing church...he was the preacher and I think I was the song leader or either we were singing a special together. Our congregation was all his stuffed animals

1st attempts at the trumpet.

Or maybe I am to be a Fireman?

Brandon, I know God has big plans for you...and I am so happy this day has come for you. I am sure you couldn't be happier. I am also proud to know that in a short time you will be continuing your education and working on your Masters in teaching music. You will be an excellent teacher. I can't wait to see where God leads you. Sorry that Jon and I can't be there on your big day...but we will be thinking of you!
