It is just the beginning of the

we go roses are blooming
with gusto.

Mikey's are no exception.





It was raining yesterday and the
water on the blooms was so pretty.





This yellow one is so old fashioned
looking.



And for those of you waiting for
this news....

MIKEY GOT THE INTERNSHIP!!!

He is officially the first
homeschool high school intern
at Longwood Gardens.

God is so good to him!

He is so excited!!!

Just a bit of Mommy Pride

You have every right to be proud of your homeschooling efforts. Homeschoolers continue to excel in today's world. (And, this comes from a former public school teacher!)

Vee said...

Yay! They won't be disappointed either. There must be much celebrating at your house!

The roses are beautiful. Though I love the delicate yellow of the old-fashioned one, I really admire that red...exquisite!

Hearty congrats on the internship! I am sure he will do great in the program and that mommy~pride is well deserved! The roses are gorgeous. I have such a hard time growing them, the leaves always get a black blight on them. Sigh, I envy Mikey's talent for growing things. thanks for dropping in for a visit and for your sweet comments.
