Very Proud!

Friday, September 13, 2013

I've been very lucky to have such great "kids" (they are 31, 29, and 23!) -- not that it has always been a smooth ride, but each of them has found a path to success. Last night was one of those great moments where we got a chance to celebrate a major achievement for my oldest daughter (29) -- graduating from nursing school! Once she completes her board review, she will be an LPN (for now she is "just" a GPN!). It has been a strain on her and my son-in-law, as this was an accelerated 16 month program, but last night it was all worth it! And to top it off, she was the class Valedictorian! She was very nervous about giving her speech, but she did quite well!

We did get a few good pictures with the graduate -- here is one of them:

    Neat that she graduated in the nurse's cap---seems like that is disappearing---I miss that symbol of a nurse.
