A GRADUATION

On August 26, we celebrated yet another joyous occasion, as Anna graduated from Wentworth Institute of Technology (Boston) with a degree in Facilities Planning and Management.  Here she is having just received her diploma, look at that smile!  



I don't know if we could possibly be more proud of this dear daughter of ours.  She did something not many 20 somethings are doing these days--she entered Wentworth in 2008 and 4 years later, she graduated.  She embraced the college experience and the learning and growing and she is, indeed, ready to tackle post-college reality.  
She studied hard and learned well.  

Anna is moving to California October 1 to begin working for the construction company she interned for last fall.  Orange County, 22 years old, loves the beach, loves her chosen profession, and looks good in a bikini. Can it get any better?  

It was such a great day, with the family all together for this special occasion.  
Me and Anna, I fit in her armpit just fine.  In my own defense, the girl has 12" heels on.  

Dave and Anna.... what can I say?  Two peas in a pod.  

Our two college grads, Paul and Anna, in one place at one time, something there's not enough of these days.

No photo album of Anna is complete without her sidekick Cassy included.  
And, of course, Poppy.  
                                           

CONGRATULATIONS ANNA
WE COULD NOT BE MORE PROUD
YOU MADE THE MOST OF YOUR 4 YEARS OF LEARNING
AND DID IT WELL

  1. Oh my, what a lovely tribute! I know your pride (and your lament that times together are not frequent enough as they grow). Congratulations to a beautiful young woman, you go girl!

Some day, I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one, I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done. I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days.
