Classmates


Here's a photo of all the girls in my graduating class. I am pictured in the front row of girls - the first one on the left. We were attending a graduation banquet and didn't everybody look good?


Here's the whole class together. We've been together for about three years, and this week everyone is off doing their own thing, and it's a little sad. To everything there's a season, though... and for us, it's time to move on.



And here I am at dinner. That was a great weekend, but I have to say that I still haven't come to terms with the fact that I am really and truly finished with school. My diploma came today, certifying that I do, in fact, have a Master's degree. I have worked for four days at the new job, and so far I love it. And yet I can't shake the feeling that I've forgoten to turn something in or that I need to finish a care plan!

And, in truth, there is a bit of unfinished business. That board certification exam looms ahead. So I'm studying as much as I can, because failure is NOT an option!

Ya'll look great! Congrats to you again Terri!

I bet you do feel a little sad. After being with all the same people for 3 years you probably feel like you are losing some of your family.

You totally inspire me. I think I'm headed back to school. Jeff and I both are. It's kind of scary, but exciting at the same time.

Congratulations to you a million times too. :))

Terri said...

Thank you so much, everybody, for the kind words. I have to log six hours of study today, so if I successfully complete that I'll get back online. When I complete that, I mean!

Amy said...
