Alma Mater

Do you know my Alma Mater? I guess it´s been on my brain a lot lately as I have been prepping for a new school year. Getting out all my teaching visuals, flashcards, incentive charts and chalkboard writing, has all the memories flooding back from those days in my Elementary Education classes. I do owe a lot to my college education.
I graduated from Pensacola Christian College in May of 1997. I was already married and such a happy, happy newly-wed graduate!

My parents were so key in my college education. They saw fit that my every bill was paid. I worked to pay as much as I could and paid for my books, but they did the rest! Thank- you again, Mom and Dad! Your sacrifice means so much!

Come on and join us for some great flashbacks with your own non-digital Photos.

Friday Photo Flashback

***Yes, I realize this is a re-post of pictures from one of my first Friday Foto Flashbacks. Actually I didn´t realize till after I did the post. Guess, I have lost more than just 5 inches this past month. Oh, yeah that was my last post. ***


  1. Don't they do all the A Beka stuff?

  2. What sweet pictures! I have a friend from high school that teaches at PCC. We are visiting colleges for our oldest - it is hard to believe that she is a senior...time passes quickly.

    Blessings to you!

  3. Wow, that is so awesome!! What a great support system you had!!!

  4. Oh how special!

    So nice to meet you. How wonderful to be missionaries in Spain!

    We have some friends that started a church in Spain last year, not sure where?

    Blessings to you and your family as you serve the Lord full time♥

  5. You are so cute! I especially love the picture of your parents kissing you!!

  6. I barely graduated High came down to one exam I had to take...I had to score and certain grade or higher, or I wouldn't have graduated....

    I steered clear of any and all colleges/universities/trade schools...anything considered higher education!

    When I walked around West Point for the first time, amongst all those "over achievers" I was extremely intimidated. How I married one of those over achievers, I'll never know.

    ( was all GOD!)

    ~~~You were an adorable graduate/newly wed!!!!

  7. Cool shots. That is nice your parents were so supportive. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Hey, we just missed each other. I started in Aug 97. You got married before you graduated? Wow, that must have been hard. I waited a month after graduation to tie the knot.

    Congrats on loosing all that weight, btw!

  9. Great pics! And what a feeling of accomplishment. I went back to college after my son was born and graduated when he was almost 5. I'll never forget that day! And yes, I am very grateful for my college diploma!

    Take care my friend!
    Hope you are doing well!

  10. I found your blog from Nina's. I am over in Russia...
    I have high admiration for PCC...I heard about it as a young girl and I use some of their stuff for home schooling.

    Can't wait to follow your blog--love to find missionaries in similar boats.

  11. What a fun way to remember the past with the flashback photos.

  12. sweet. Brings back memories. I had to back again though, when my husband decided to go into the ministry. That's a lot of years at PCC. ;-)

    It's funny, my son has already decided he wants to go there. I think it's because he went to church there when he was little and remembers being on campus, etc.
