My Greatest Mother's Day Present Ever!

Yes, this is the actual sign that I saw at 7:45 AM CST!

We had the Honorable Governor Rick Perry as the commencement speaker. Only in Texas would a commencement start with "Howdy Ya'll".

Munchkin looking up in the stands at us as she knew the names were about to be called....

Munchkin the moment before the announcer reader her name to all of us.

The proud graduate and her even prouder mama.

The "family" picture. From left to right: Wifey, Me, Munchkin, Mary, the Ex, and Trouble.

I can officially say that as this day comes to a close that I am so very proud of Munchkin. She got her degree in four years and is now ready to start the next phase of her life as a young woman. She is ready to make her mark and start her legacy. I know that all that Wifey and I have done to see this day come and go has been all well worth it.

(just because i'm me - i have to ask - does it look like trouble is trying to pull away from her dad to anyone else, or is it just me?)
