Always a SOONER!

The diploma insert said: "No Matter Where You Go, You'll Always Be a SOONER!" Blair walked in May and we witnessed the day. Blair finished all of the coursework in July and that chapter highlights how time flies. Our baby girl is a graduate. Sooner Blair.


This is what this mom remembers about Blair's four year college visit in Norman, Oklahoma (and I may have something wrong on my list) but here goes a mom's perspective...BSU...touched for life at Trinity Church...touched by kids where you worked...Pursuit Bible Studies...football games...loving challenging political science classes...walking in the snow to class...four fabulous roommates...sand volleyball...President's Leadership Class...meeting Queen Noor of Jordan...themed house parties...dinner with Rudy Guiliani...making a million friends...Ronald Reagan Ranch...awesome Ghana mission trip...Pioneer missions...SCI delegate to Hungary & Budapest...road trips from California to New York...campus-wide Capture the Flag...two summer internships with Kay Granger and Kay Bailey Hutchison...but best of all, a mighty God who showed up for Blair in Norman! Your beauty is beautiful Blair!


I have spent most of August with my graduated girl... haven't spent that much precious consecutive time with her since high school. She left this week for Washington D.C. as a Witherspoon fellow... an internship with the Family Research Council in D.C.

There is a sweetness about this girl that is priceless. She has a big heart for people and more than that a big heart for her God. She may be a SOONER forever but she will always be my baby Blair. We are so proud of you sweet girl! I believe your God will show up for you in Washington DC.
