On June 3rd 2010 I officially graduated from University! I received my Bachelor's degree in Health Sciences (Addictions Counselling). It is about time that I graduated! I am sure my parent's agree. I could not have done this without them. I am so grateful for their support...and their money! :) Thanks Mom and Dad!
I floundered through University for a few years not really knowing what I wanted to do with my life. I took a risk and applied to the addictions counselling program, which had always been in the back on my mind. I haven't looked back since and I know I made the right choice.
I am also so lucky to have secured a job right out of school.

My parents and Caleb came to the convocation ceremony and were troupers to sit through the long affair. It was a sunny day, but soooo windy! Typical Lethbridge. They make you start in University Hall and then walk up the hill lead by a bagpiper. Kind of a cool experience, but pair a bunch of girls in heels with the Lethbridge wind and it's not agood combo! We almost fell over!

Caleb thought it was cute how when my program got up to get our degrees we all clapped and cheered for each other. That's what you get when a bunch of counsellor's get together. Unconditional regard!

But the whole thing was a great experience.
So I have one degree under my belt. Caleb is working on his third.
I told him I need to at least get one more degree so I can keep up. Not really for me, but I just picture out future children wondering why Dad has three degrees and I only have one!
We will see what the future holds!

My amazing parents!
My amazing husband!

Me and the lovely Shira.

Me and the beautiful Rachael.

Sweet! If getting a job doesn't make it real, convocating sure does! You look great! So proud of you!

congratulations!!! So happy for you - and we need to get together sometime - now that piano lessons are over and summer holiday fun is beginning... SOON!!! you have an open invitation to invite yourselves over for dinner on our deck with the pool, waterslide AND sprinkler. (OK, the pool is our inflatable boat... and the waterslide is really just a slide with a hose on it that goes into the inflatable boat. But it's FUN!
