Cory's Graduation Day

A four hour drive brought me, my mom, sister and brother-in-law to Brawley, CA. We arrived in time to check into our motel, The Brawley Inn, and then drive 15 miles to my daughter's graduation ceremony from the nursing program at Imperial Valley College. Most of my pictures came out blurry for some reason, but here's a few that came out OK......

Each graduate wrote an inspirational statement of thanks. Here's Cory's.


Here's the Happy Graduate


My granddaughters Torey and Natalie, who are very proud of their mom.


Three generations.

Hmmmm, does Danl have thoughts of becoming an RN?

You must be so proud of her! That's a hard job. You guys all look great - those kids sure did grow up fast!

What a nice 'thank you', but really? She practiced inserting IVs? Yikes! Then again, how else would she get good at it?

That's an impressive and gutsy thing to go back to school. No wonder you're all so proud of her.

Wow, what an exciting day and an incredible accomplishment!! I am so happy for her and I think it's great that she chose such a needed career field! Your granddaughters are beautiful Sally! I didn't even know Cory had kids! LOL! Love the 3 generation photo! My Abbie wants to do nursing too and hopefully she'll get on it after the baby is born! Continued blessings to all of you! Lisa

Wonderful news! What fabulous family support. It isn't easy to go back to school as an adult. I didn't know they still had the "cap" ceremony. No one wears them anymore.
