A Homecoming

Son No. 1, John, is home from college.  Hubby flew down to Charlotte, NC, last Thursday night to make the eight hour drive home with him Friday.

I can't believe he's finished four years of college.  Where the heck have these last four years gone??!!   It seems like not too long ago we were celebrating his graduation from high school.  

His 21st birthday last August almost seems like yesterday.

It's been a lot of years since he was the little guy below stressing about his first day of preschool! 

He does have to go back down to UNC Charlotte for one more semester this August.  He'll officially graduate in December.  

As usual, his big request for me to have ready when he came through the door Friday evening was a plate of brownies.  I was more than happy to oblige!  Along with some banana cupcakes, blueberry poundcake and banana bread, I also threw together some yummy guacamole, mini french bread pizzas and warm spinach dip.  
That boy can eat!!!

Seems all I've been doing the past few days since he's been home is cooking!  It's all good, though.  I can see he's been starved for home cookin'.  

It's good to have him home.  

Thanks for visiting!
Leave a comment so I can get to know you.

I'll bet you're enjoying every second, Carla! Look at how cute he was in the preschool photo. That cute little boy turned into a good looking young man! My son will be 21 next month {my baby!} and I'm not happy about it.

How time flies when it comes to our kids growing up huh?! Glad he's home safe & sound and filling up on mom's brownie's!

Wow Carla I can't believe the 4 years went by. You are such a good Mommy making all of his favorite treats. Love the picture when he was little-how cute. LIsa
