My little girl has graduated! *They grow up so fast… OK, not my daughter, she is 6 for goodness sake, I am talking about my wife.
That’s right, after a few years (don’t worry honey, I won’t say how many) in the business sector, 2 kids, and another few years as a stay at home Mom, my wife went back to school full time at the beginning of this year to get her LPN Nursing degree.
My son and daughter, as well as my mother-in-law, my wifeâ€™s brother and her grandfather and I listened to the speeches, and watched as each member of the class received their diplomas and their nurseâ€™s pin.
After the diplomas, the Outstanding Achievement award for highest GPA was announced, and my kids watched as their Mommy was called in recognition of her 3.97 GPA. Finally, the Florence Nightingale Award went to a student chosen by the other students, for their achievements in the class. We all cheered as my wife was called back up to the stage.
Graduation and sweeping the awards! Great job hon, we are all very proud of you!
*My wife didn’t appreciate being called ‘my little girl’ and I guess I can’t blame her. I was just really proud of her accomplishments and I kind of related it to the pride I have in my children’s accomplishments. It won’t happen again… at least I’ll try not to.
