Black and Gold Day
My niece, Natalie, graduated from a local junior college last Friday. She received an associates degree in General Studies. She will begin UAH next Fall to achieve her dream to become a Physical Therapist. We've joked around saying that I will go back to school and become a Physical Therapist Assistant. Jon also said he could become a PTA. That way, when Natalie opens up her business, she'll have two assistants and Maryann will be the receptionist/bookkeeper. LOL! Of course, Natalie smiles and says that it sounds good to her.
She graduated with "Who's Who In America's Junior Colleges and kept a 3.5 or above GPA.
Natalie gives me the thumbs up after receiving her diploma.
Proud parents: Maryann, Natalie and Kevin
Proud grandparents: mom, Natalie, and dad

Nathan and Natalie
My mom can never remember Nathan's name. The night of the graduation, she called him Nolan. To make light of the situation, I told her "no, mom, Nolan is her granddaughter's husband. May I introduce to you, Nathan." Nathan's been around for almost a year now, so it's not like he just started showing up. LOL! I guess we all get this way from time to time. I'm just as guilty for calling someone by the wrong name.
I forgot to post a picture of mom's flowers that I picked up for Sandy. The flowers to mom was a gift for Mother's Day. Sandy, here they are and they look so pretty on mom's back porch.
