I apologize for not making an appearance at your blogs last week.  I didn’t spend as much time at the computer as I wanted to.

I have a very special weekend coming up!  My son, Matthew, is graduating from college next Sunday!  We’ll travel about 3 1/2 to 4 hours to his University on Long Island, NY.  I can’t wait to see him accept his diploma!  We couldn’t be more proud of him.  Last year, Matthew traveled around the world with Semester at Sea (a travel abroad program on a ship). He saw the beauty and poverty of the world.  He told me that not one day goes by without him thinking about what he saw.   I’m so glad he went and I can’t wait to see what he does with the rest of his life.

In case you didn’t see this last year, this is a poster that Matthew made for us.


This is where the pictures were taken:

THANK – Brazil

YOU – Japan

MOM – Mauritius

AND – China

DAD – Hawaii

FOR – Viet Nam

GIVING – India

ME – South Africa

THE – Ghana

WORLD – Florida (USA)  We met Matthew in Florida when he got off the ship and the 4 of us spent some time at Universal Studios together.

Dave and I will always treasure this!


Congratulations Matthew!
