A college graduation


We had a college graduation from the University of Illinois this weekend...yesterday to be exact....Ms. Shannon graduated with honors as well as earning the James Scholar Award-an honors program award you need to be invited to do with a grade point average of 3.5 or higher and you have to complete certain requirements each year ...31 of her fellow College of Aces graduates also earned this award--it is the medal on the orange and blue ribbon-.....Here are a few pictures of the event.
Here is our little hugger -Tina- notice your bracelet on her wrist!(you will need to click on the photo to see it!)-



The Happy Parents!

Neva,

We were watching the news and wondering if you've heard from Greg after the earthquake in China. (Jeff: "I wonder what city he's in?")

Hope everything's ok!
(Great pictures!)

Just lovely - congratulations!

Thanks for visiting me.

My hubby (GB) grew up in Roselle - we've been moving back to the greater Chi-town area for about 25 years now...hasn't happened yet!

I'm bookmarking you and will be back often - thank goodness for ABC Wednesday!

I just got a chance to look at your pictures. I bet you are so proud of your beautiful daughter. I especially love the picture where YOU LOOK SHORT. (Good thing I wasn't there.)

To the UK Liz: I did a double take thinking "I have no mememory of making that comment - I didn'T!! I'll have to start signing my comments LIZAZ, and you can sign yours LIZUK. Whoa! Neither sounds good.
