Of Mothers and Sons ...

It is hard when your kids grow up ... and go AWAY to go to school (even if it IS only an hour in one direction for me to get to my oldest, and about an hour-and-a-half in the OTHER direction for me to get to my youngest ... and about 10 minutes across town for my son in the middle). As a result of my daughter being the youngest AND the one who is around the most, a LOT of my digital scrapbooking with MDS has been done of HER ... or HER and HER FRIENDS ... or ME and HER ... or the DOG ...

However, this has always been a favorite photo of mine (and my BOYS need some equal MDS time!). We took this during the Fall of 2006, a mere two months after my son had started his first year of college. He was with us that day as our family did one of our most TREASURED family traditions ... pressing apples for juice in Alpine. Despite the fact that he is giving me a piggyback ride ... AND despite the fact that my niece is giving us the "rabbit ear" treatment from behind, I just LOVE this. Wow ... hard to believe this was taken 6 1/2 years ago!!
