The reasons I am exceedingly proud to be a mom:
1. Joseph, 20. Finishing his 2nd year at IU Bloomington. Has a summer job at a playhouse in Bloomington as an assistant stage manager.
2. Rachael, 18. Graduating from high school in less than a month with honors, #10 in her class. Working a part-time job, had a leading role in her spring musical, and still keeps her grades up. Off to IU with her brother in the fall.
3. Daniel, almost 16. Outstanding athlete in football, wrestling, and track. Runs the 100m dash in 11.3 seconds. As a freshman, already placing in meets with juniors and seniors. Just an overall good kid, brother, and son.
4. Aaron, 10. Maturing by leaps and bounds. Finishing 4th grade. Did some wrestling, now playing soccer. Also playing the viola. My last baby.
I have been a mother for 20 years. It is the best thing I've ever done or will ever do.
Happy Mother's Day to all those outstanding moms, including mine!!!
