Todd Finally graduates!! Friday the 13th of May, 2011

Friday the 13th. What a regal day to graduate! I am so Pleased with Todd. He never got to "walk" in high school graduation, so this is his first (and probably only) time to walk. He looked very handsome indeed. He worked extremely diligently for this day, with almost straight A's. As his wife, I can say "thank heavens", and I wish it were truly over. But he still has to finish his online Bachelor's degree, and he is in yet another program this year: Polysomnography. But this accomplishment is a great step! Now, to only get a job.....

Lena is practicing what it will feel like, a long, long, long time from now....

She is such a good baby and did awesome for the graduation ceremony and staying out late at the restaurant afterwards. We didn't get home until 11:30 pm, and of course Lena was still awake. She is a diehard!

Todd's fellow respiratory students were an amazing bunch, and Todd developed some great friendships. They are all graduating with an Associate in Applied Science: Respiratory Care. Todd already passed his Board exams to get his Respiratory RRT license back in February, and is looking for a job currently. It is a tough season for new graduates, but we are confident that with time, he will get a job.

The two graduates with their daughters :)

Todd with his sister Kristel and her children. We are so grateful they all sacrificed to come down, and enjoy being with them!

Although Deanna could not make it down for the graduation, Todd wanted to honor his mother by getting re-dressed in his gown. We suprised her at her home. Todd didn't want her to miss out on the excitement. My sister Ann, made TOdd a neat ribbon for him to wear as a graduation gift.

The poor Bracken's drove all 11 hours Friday to get to Todd's graduation, then made the trip back to Utah Sunday. They are troopers, but it was fun to have them! Matthew is getting so grown up, and I am so proud of him.

The moment you have all been waiting for..........To witness for yourself Todd graduating! To make sure I am not lying to you! So now there are no excuses for far-away family members, you can feel just like you were there yourself!! Don't fast forward, just enjoy.

The End :)
