Ruth Has Her Degree!

Our daughter, Ruth graduated last Saturday! She's been going to school part-time for some time now. After spending three years at Elim Bible School in Lima, NY, she has been working to complete her degree at Nyack.

We got the call last Tuesday that she was going the walk on Saturday! Kelly drove up to Nyack early Saturday morning. I missed the ceremony but she was on my mind and in my heart all day long. I'm so proud of her! (That's an OK kind of pride...I think.) She's the first one in our family to get her diploma and she did it with honors and a 3.95 GPA! Her degree is a "Batchelor of Science in Organizational Management". I can't imagine how hard all this was for her. She works full time and is also a new mother.

As you can see form the pictures below, Sammi was able to graduate as well (SHE'S WALKING!). I'm not sure how far Sammi can get with a degree in "Poopy Diapers" but at least she's on her way.

  1. Correction for posterity's sake -- I went to school full-time at Nyack (two hours away from home) while working full-time as a manager and carrying, then caring for Samantha. Whew! Not to brag on myself or anything.
