Graduation Day

Normally this blog is about me, me, me...this post is about my oldest daughter, Amanda. (She's just about the center of the photo looking back towards me as I snapped it.

Amanda has been a source of great pride for her parents in recent years, and while parenting is often not easy, this weekend we can celebrate one of the truly happy mile-markers in her life.

Amanda will become a Magna cum Laude graduate of the University of Houston this Friday afternoon. She will be graduating after 4 years of hard work and dedication to completing this path she placed herself upon 4 years ago. She has certainly made her family proud of her--something we have made sure to point out to her.

(Father-in-law update-just a quick update on my previous post about my father-in-law, he has had his hip repair/replacement surgery on Thursday and is recovering with a good prognosis at this point. )

With a name like Amanda how could she be anything but amazing? You know I couldn't resist that one :).

Congratulations to Amanda for all her hard work that is an amazing accomplishment.

Congratulations to you and your wife for raising an amazing daughter and helping her on her way to adulthood.

Glad to hear your father-in-law is recovering. I hope he heals quickly and completely.

Amanda, I am sure there is no bias at all in your liking her name. ;)

I hardly ever knew any Amanda's growing up, so upon her being named I thought Amanda would be a fairly distinctive name. As it turned out, she was often in classes with other girls named Amanda all the way through college.
