Well, the BIG DAY finally one way it was a day I have been dreading since kindergarten and yet Jim and I are so very proud of Franklin. It was an awesome day and we want to thank our family and friends for making it some memorable for Franklin. Mom, Ace, Granny, Tom, and Margaret were able to go with us and make it special. It was an emotional time for us all...I'm trying to save my tears for August when my baby leaves :)

Graduation Day BBQ

The Lord blessed us with such a FANTASTIC day for Franklin's graduation party...the weather was wonderful after so many, many days of rain. Dad, Jason, and Mr. Jerome came to Searcy on Friday to spend the night so they would be ready bright and early on Saturday morning to get those ribs on the grill. We are forever grateful for all of the hard work they put in for Franklin and The Featherstons...we all had such a BLAST. This graduation time is sad for his Dad and I, but also shows us how FAITHFUL the Lord has been to us. Franklin and AK have come a long way from 2lbs and we are eternally grateful for our incredible children. They make us so proud and we LOVE them so very much. We also want to thank our family and friends for making the day so very memorable. Here are a few pictures....

Senior Banquet

Graduation and all the events leading up to it were just awesome.....Our family and friends have made it so special for Franklin and for Dad and Mom too. Sunday, April 26th, was the senior banquet that our church always hosts for the seniors. It was held at Eagleview and it was really nice. Tucker Brackins put together a video featuring each of the from birth to present...and each senior has someone speak on their behalf. We asked the Woodruff clan to speak for Franklin...Camdon was the main speaker, but Ole Rhon had to add in her two cents, they were so kind and such an encouragement to Franklin. We all ended up in tears. Mom and Larry got to come and be a part of the whole thing too. Here are a few pictures I managed to get...
This is kind of blurry, but all I have from Sunday morning
