Come June 12 , my  25 year old daughter, who has been in the navy reserve since 16 will graduate from the RCMP in Regina Sk. 6 months of intense training. As of today they still have all 32 troops.  This has only happened 1 or 2 times before.
I will need to make sure I don't have a button up shirt on at thre grad.

Paul Case,  Looks like you all did a good job raising your sons.  Equally important, you can provide jobs for them. 

Graduations:  Worse than the long winded speakers, for me, is the heat.  However, May 71, when I graduated college, it was freezing.

Sandsawmil14:   My Granddaddy used to ask, "If everybody goes to college, who is going to the do the work?"

 sounds like your granddad was a smart man :)  what they dont teach kids in school now is that manual labor has to be done and on a personal level we have to do it ourselves or pay someone to do it  and as Americans we have to do it  ourselves or have immigrants do it :-\ and we all know how that worked out ::) i prefer the we do it ourselves  ;D now how do we get the education system to teach this ??? :D :D :D

We have a Granddaughter, Marty's Daughter, graduating from college today!!   :)



 
Since she had spent 4+ years earning that diploma, you had better believe that we spent 8 hours round trip traveling and then ~3 hours of sitting, waiting, and watching her walk across that stage.

My niece graduated yesterday, my oldest daughter next weekend, and another niece the weekend after in North Dakota  :o.  Yesterday's was nice, a class of nine, took 45 minutes, and a lot of memories shared by the kids, I enjoyed it.  Now I just have to get 100# of pork but thawed, smoked and ready to go for Friday  ::).

I attended my home high school's graduation last evening. It rained thundered and lightening through the whole thing so the crowd was a little smaller than normal. Many empty seats in the bleachers to be had. Lasted just over 1 hour. I heard every word that was said. They announced about the same $200,000 worth of scholarships awarded to more than half the student body. Had the video too.  It was all good.

Just attended the granddaughter's high school event....over six hundred graduates and scholarship money in the millions! It was held in a big sports arena and felt like a theatrical production.  Don't know what ever happened to keep it simple.

We had my daughter's yesterday, class of 47 I believe.  They kept it simple and nice, 45 minutes long, 2 really nice speeches from students, and a nice slide show.  The sun actually came back out yesterday, it was a nice day.

Congratulations on your daughter's graduation Sandhills.

My middle daughter, Shelby, will graduate tonight.  She ended up as the salutatorian and will give a brief speech to her class.  She chose to have me introduce her, which I am honored to do.  My dad graduated from the same school 55 years ago.

Picture is from baccalaureate, which was Sunday.

Poston and MM, I am proud of her.  She has worked diligently without much complaint while helping me do a major portion of my job over the past four years.

The graduation went well.  Shelby gave her speech and I was able to give her her (Tom) diploma and she and 407 of her classmates were able to get their diplomas or certificates of completion.  Afterwards they rushed the graduates out of the doors of the civic center and we spent 20 minutes or so trying to locate Shelby and assemble for family and extended family photos.

We were able to get a picture of all of us.  Our youngest daughter has six more years until graduation but they will surely fly by.

Graduation is good. High honors even better.
407? I don't think there was that many in the whole school when I graduated.  ;D  I had 69 in my class.
