August Calendar Pages

It's half way through the month
and I've finally got my August calendar
pages done 
(for the Kathryn Wheel 
Calendar Challenge).

The quote for August is by
Joseph Wood Krutch,

"August creates as she slumbers,
replete and satisfied."

August 14th (today)
has a little be-candled cupcake on it 
because it is my son Luke's
18th birthday!

I can hardly believe it,
my baby boy has turned into a man!

(With a very happy Grant)
(With me!)
We're going out for a meal tonight
to celebrate,
and he'll be able to buy his first
(legal) beer :)

Apart from the hairdo Jo you and Grant have hardly changed at all, it must be the fresh Kent air. Luke has grown up a bit though, what a sweetie I love his shock of white blond hair in the photo with you. All grown up now! I was once told by a friend now is when the real problems start - Oh goody! A very happy birthday to Luke.

have a wonderful evening and a happy birthday Luke. Lovely memories. Might be harder to carry him now!

Ah, thanks for sharing those great pictures - we won't tell him you did it!

Time goes by so fast...

Sabrina said...

Congratulations Mum as it's as much about you as it is about the birthday boy! And what a sweetie-face he was!!

Love the calendar pages!
Luke was such a cute baby....:)
Hope you all enjoyed your meal (and the first legal drink!!).
Hugs xx
p.s. reminds me of when the boy turned 18..asked him where he was going to celebrate..much thought needed as he realised he couldn't really do it in the pubs he'd already been using!!lol

Gorgeous, gorgeous page Jo.

How is it possible that 18 years on you look so much younger?? (I swear that sounded like a compliment in my head! And it's true - you do look like you are ageing backwards... again, meant to be a compliment! Aaargh..... shutting up!)
