"Graduation Day for Our Girls".....

Friday, May 28, 2010

Today I am looking forward to a very unstructured & relaxing weekend....Last weekend it was anything but!..."everything" was going on!......and among all our activities was the graduation of both our daughters, Holly & Mallory from San Diego State University!....Needless to say we were so very proud!......
Both the girls laughed about the length of time they've been in school!.... 4 years turned into a few more when we decided to move our family to upstate New York for a few years. We learned that many college credits earned in Southern California are of no use at schools in the East.....And then there was the move back to So. Cal where once again credits were lost!.....

On top of all that, the arrival of our grandson Andrew, also added a bit more time onto the length of time it took to get a diploma in hand. Holly decided to take a year off Andrew's first year, deciding learning to be a mother, was much more important than art history!....

So between the moving... & lost credits... & a baby being born, also add in a broken shoulder, & a few other incidentals! :) .... Through it all, college studies persevered & both girls accomplished what they had set out to do.....earn their degrees.....
Holly's in Art History & Mallory's in Applied Art.

My husband Ter & I feel so fortunate to have the girls we do.....They have grown into women that we not only love,...but also admire & respect. Congratulations Holly! Congratulations Mallory!......You make us proud!......
