God knew….

Today, what an exciting day!

Layton graduated from an intense 12 weeks lineman school.

I am so proud of him. His class of 28 graduated the highest achievers since the highest goal was set in 2007.  The class of 2013 set a new record. Layton finished with a 96.8 GPA average. Can I just tell you, this Momma is super proud of his accomplishment here.

Do ya’all remember how I have been whining and crying how I can not keep him out of a tree?  For years now the kids come in yelling for me to go out and find Layton AGAIN! I know to look up because he is ALWAYS in the top of a tree.

The Lord knew his love for this and the brains he has to be successful with electricity on top of that.

We also have been so blessed on top of it all because his Uncle Justin, a lineman himself, donated much of his equipment to Layton. It’s an honor to wear his gear and grateful for the help in advice, time, etc.

He got to demonstrate some of what he has learned for us.

More of him doing what he loves to do best, CLIMB!


Lots of support, his friends from high school made the trip down, Shayna and her family, and of course the boys, Jim and I



So, now Layton goes before the Lord and gets direction as to where he goes next. I remind myself nonstop that he has had Layton in His hands from day one He isn’t going to drop Him now.

I know the plans I have for you says the Lord.

I’m anxious to see what He has in mind for Him from here on out.
