HOPES AND DREAMS FULFILLED...

At our son's college graduation day!  An ending for us, a completion of sorts, and a beginning for him!  We are beaming.

Add to that, a beautiful day with lovely weather and time spent together with our family and OC friends!  A Board member friend of ours gave the address and I loved his message, quoting Donald Miller's book and encouraging the graduates to "write their own story."  He also talked about living an adventurous life, seeing things in HD (seeing other's needs) and treasuring your faith, family and friends.  Good advice.  After the picture taking and celebrating, we ended the day with pizza and cards with our kids.  It was a day to remember.

These four started out together as roommates:  
two from Edmond, two from Nashville.  

Proud Gram (my mother)!

The graduates:  cousins, roommates, friends - 
with Grandmother (the Hub's mom)!



Grandmother with her grandsons, twin sons and us wives...


Our Colorado girl flew in for the occasion!

A visit up to the Science building to take a picture with my Dad.  
He would have been so proud!


Celebrating at Flint in downtown!

Great pictures and a great celebration! I am putting this comment for this post and the two above. All of these "final" moments are such great memories. Thanks for posting so we can share them with you.
