Megan Jordan

I have know Megan for years! I actually babysat her many moons ago. Megan was one of my cheerleaders four short years ago and is a current student.

Watching a kid grow into a young adult is one of the most rewarding things that life has to offer. Watching Megan has been no exception. She has grown into a mature, smart and beautiful young lady.

Blog readers...I have a favor to ask. Megan went in for a simple ACL surgery a couple of weeks ago. Complications from a infection from the operating room has caused two additional surgeries and problems. Pray for a speedy recovery so she can enjoy the rest of her senior year.

Megan we miss you at school.

Kaleb McNeely

Some of my favorite sessions are my senior sessions. They are full of surprises, adventure and fresh air! Kaleb's session did not let me down! The old blue Hardin bus, river, open fields...PERFECT!

Kaleb, I have enjoyed getting to know you this year. You are a fun kid with a great personality. I know you future is bright! Congratulations Graduate!

Happy Mother's Day

History of Mother's Day from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The modern Mother's Day holiday was created by Anna Jarvis, as a day to honor mothers and motherhood; especially within the context of families, and family relationships.[1] It is now celebrated on various days, in many parts of the world. Father's Day is a corresponding holiday honoring fathers.

The practice of celebrating Mother's Day is a relatively recent tradition, first established in the U.S.A. in the early 20th century. It should not be confused with other pagan and Christian traditions honoring mothers, or with the U.K. holiday, Mothering Sunday, which is also known as Mother's Day and dates back to the 16th century.

Many countries around the world now celebrate a "Mother's Day", generally this is a recent practice, derived from the U.S. tradition. Exceptions include, for example, Mothering Sunday in the UK, which predates the U.S. holiday.

In 1912, Anna Jarvis trademarked the phrases "second Sunday in May" and "Mother's Day", and created the Mother's Day International Association. [1][2]

"She was specific about the location of the apostrophe; it was to be a singular possessive, for each family to honour their mother, not a plural possessive commemorating all mothers in the world."[1]

This is also the spelling used by U.S. President Woodrow Wilson in the law making official the holiday in the U.S., by the U.S. Congress on bills,[3][4] and by other U.S. presidents on their declarations.[5]

Common usage in English language also dictates that the ostensibly singular possessive "Mother's Day" is the preferred spelling, although "Mothers' Day" (plural possessive) is not unheard of.
