MONDAY = GRADUATION!!!

A1C Sharayah Farrell graduated from Medical Laboratory Technician School this morning. There were 5 class members who graduated today. I am proud to say that Shay, along with 2 classmates, received an award for acedemic excellence. I don't have the cert in front of me so I am not exactly sure what they called it but will update this post when we get back home tomorrow. We just loaded the car and are now waiting to attend her finaly outprocessing briefing at 1pm (1300 for you military folks) and then we will hit the road. We are planning dinner in Nashville which is about 5 hours from here and then it is another 10 hours into Tampa. Thanks for all the good wishes. We have had a good visit. Yesterday I got to meet Airmanmom's son John. We took him to the Olive Garden for lunch and spent about 2 hours together. He is a nice boy (cute too). I told him and Shay that it is every Air Force Moms wish that our kids will meet someday. Then they can all discuss just how weird their moms are and why we make them meet strange people. I have pics and will post them tomorrow. As soon as we take naps. Then I have to catch up on my blog reading. I feel so out of it.

Bye bye
