As most of you know, my husband had been laid off at the end of 2008. Since then he has been a full time student at a local college here. The past couple of years with him in school and me working have been hard on us but we did it!!!! Toby graduated last Thursday from his Network Administration course. He also landed a job the same day from Halliburton!!! I am so proud of him. He worked so hard to get to this point and I know that all of the sacrifices we had to make were well worth it!!! His actual graduation ceremony will take place in June. On another note of graduations in my family, my baby sister Erin will be graduating from nursing school in March and my mom and my aunt will be there for her pinning ceremony. Her graduation is also in June (hopefully not the same day) and I am hoping to go to San Fransisco for her graduation! My family and myself are very proud of both of them and I know that this is the start of new beginnings for all of us!!!!

Below are pictures of my husband Toby and our son , and my sister Erin and her friend!

    Congratulations to all of your graduates! I know that takes a lot of hard work when you have to schedule it around being a Mom & Dad. When my daughter was encouraging me to take a college class with her recently, I asked her if she had anyone my age in any of her classes. She said, "I don't think I've had any teachers as old as you!"Janet W
