I gotta brag....

I know I’ve been MIA for the last week. A lot going on and an increase in work hours have left me little time for blogger.

Nick and I attended commencement services at John Carroll University yesterday. Our niece graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree and Alpha Sigma Nu; The National Jesuit Honor Society member. She was also presented the Biology Leadership Award and is the vice president of the John Carroll chapter of Circle K, an organization focusing on community service and leadership.

How About That!
And she has a great sense of humor.

To say we were a proud group sitting amongst the few thousand people in the quad is an understatement. Though she’s not unique among her fellow graduates from this private institution, she is however exceptional. Especially to her proud family.

“Number 9”, the moniker I gave her after she graduated 9th in her class at Trinity High School in 2005, has enrolled in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Walsh University.

I’ll just let these last two pictures speak for themselves.

The extremely proud father…..

and mother......

Congrats to all of you! And magna cum laude too, wow! I think your niece chose well with physical therapy, that is such a hot field, with plenty of need. Very nice. I can't wait to hear about her next graduation. Hope you had a wonderful time, she is so pretty and gifted!

Thank you Tsofah and Lisa.

We couldn't have been prouder. I actually took 261 pictures.

The healthcare field seems to run in our family. My brother is a paramedic, my son is an LPN working on his RN state boards and my husband is in pharmaceuticals.

A beautiful family.

I agree that phy therapy is a great choice.

Oh, and it's good to have you back at blogging!

How nice, Miss J! Best wishes to your niece. Beauty, brains AND a sense of humor? She's definitely the total package! (Kind of reminds me of her dear Aunt)

John Carroll is an excellent school and the pictures were great...I bet you had fun snapping away.

Welcome back.
