My daughter the Graduate!

This is daughter on her Graduation night this past Thursday. She graduated from the Technology College after taking Data processing this past year. I was so proud of her. She also started a new job on the same day. She is using her new skills at a wonderful company and making a excellent salary. How wonderful is that, graduating and starting a new career on the same day.
Below is a picture of her and her big brother. He will be taking the State Trooper exam next week, in hopes of getting on soon.
My babies are so growing up now and I am so very proud of them both!!!

I am finally going to get to start in my new position next week. Tomorrow I will go to a training class with other Registrars, then Tuesday I will be at my new school. I am so ready for this new step in my life.
Last week was truly miserable. The heat was so unbearable! Our school system only made the students go half a day, but us poor adults had to stay and suffer. Of course my office had no air and I just couldn't stay in there after lunch or I would have been on the news being carted out on a stretcher from heat exhaustion.
We had a little bit of rain last night. I just went out and stood in it as it has been so long since I have seen it. I could just hear all of nature saying "Thank-You". It didn't last long but it was wonderful and it cooled us down. We are suppose to stay under 100 next week and then rainy and in the 80s by next week-end. That will feel like fall. We have so suffered here in Tennessee this summer. No humidity, just dry, hot heat. We have broken alot of records for heat and drought and they are saying it will take us a few years to recover from it all.
I hope everyone is doing well and that you have all had a great week-end!!! I will try to post some next week but I might be rather busy learning my new job.
Hugs to all!

How exciting!!! Congrats to everyone, especially your daughter. She looks so happy. I am so glad you don't have to endure that airless jail cell any longer! (Isn't that what the kids call it too???? hehe) I am so happy for you. What a wonderful week you had. Good for you, you deserve it Bethy.

Congratulations to your daughter, Beth. And best wishes for success as your son goes for that test.

I was surprised to read that the heat was dry, not humid. Our triple digit heat is always dry and we DIE if it gets even a little muggy. We are such babies about humidity out here. I guess it's all about what you are used to. Dry 100's are the norm here and wouldn't phase me. Might get old fast but that's about it. Of course, A/C is EVERYWHERE!!!!!! so we can pretend to be stalwart sorts. LOL

What a great week, and congrats on everything! Your daughter, the new job and getting through the week.

You guys have been on the national news even so we are aware of what you've been through, and thank heaven it is starting to change some!

Congrats to your daughter! How fantastic that she graduated and started her new job on the same day!! That's ambition! I also think she looks so much like you.

I'm absolutely thrilled to hear you're starting at the new school next week. That is a relief. I've been worrying about you working in all that heat with no a/c.

I just got an e-mail with more wedding and even honeymoon photos from my son and his bride! It is so good to see them making good choices!
