Because this fella graduated today!
Lydon Edward finished fire science classes and is now certified in not only Fire 1 but Fire 2, Folks!! That's a big deal around these parts. So that calls for a celebration (and a blog post!). We rounded up Grandpa Bob, Grandma Carol and Alan and Grandpa Tim and Grandma Margy to par-tee!
Grandpa Bob made the best home-made card (even though it took him a couple of 3 or so hours to make). It was a super cool card that involved stealing Lydon's picture from his facebook page, a very nice firefighter poem, and some sappy/tear jerky words of encouragement(who taught him how to do those things-especially stealing pictures from facebook). It totally put my balloons, congratulations button and crepe paper to shame.
He followed it up with a new firefighter hitch cover for Lydon's truck and a firefighter key chain .
You have heard of re-gifting.......how about re-enveloping? Ask Grandma Carol what was up with this re-do of my envelope.
After gifts, we partied!
Why does it always look like they are trying to run from me and my camera?
We made the boy a feast fit for a Firefighting King of steak and chicken.
Congratulations Lydee--you are only 19 years old and you are EMT certified and Fire 1 and 2 certified and we are so very proud of you!! You are almost there with your EMT intermediate--keep up the good work and soon enough you'll be living your dream!
We Love You!
