Hello Everyone,

Amongst all everything that is going on in my life at the moment.... you know the move, teaching, etc... I had the most wonderful weekend!  My oldest graduated from college. We had a fantastic weekend and I can't begin to tell you how proud and excited I am for my daughter!  

Beautiful and smart!

I snapped this as she was shaking hands and getting her diploma!

It was a very HOT and HUMID weekend, but worth every minute.  It was filled with family, friends, and food. But most of all achievement in one of it's most grandest forms. 

We are very, very proud!

My parents came along... they wouldn't have missed their granddaughter graduating college!

My daughter worked very hard over the past four years and has walked away with a dual degree in Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering.  What a way to celebrate the weekend!

My daughter and her boyfriend!  

The football field emptied pretty quickly as it was unbearable muggy!

Once she graduated, we continued the celebration and then helped to move her from her apartment and say her goodbyes.  It was bittersweet for her and us as it has essentially been her home away from home for four years!  But she has grander things on the horizon.  

She will do great things!!! We love her and are amazingly proud!

Until Next Time...
