Alyssa graduating from ESU

Our oldest daughter graduated from Emporia State University this weekend.  She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology and a Minor in Crime and Delinquency.  Wow she is just so smart.

As soon as she came walking in I was crying.  I just could not control the tears.  After she sat down she sent me a text say, "stop crying".  Yes she was texting me during her graduation.  Gotta love her.  But I was just so proud.  I was going through in my mind all the struggles she went through and all the prayer and encouraging it took to get her here.  It was just an overwhelming and wonderful feeling seeing her sit there.  When she was done and I got to give her a big hug and all I could do was hug her and put my arms in the air and say YOU DID IT!!!! YOU DID IT!!!! As I sit here typing this I am still crying.  I always think I can never feel more proud of my children with each goal they accomplish but the feelings just get stronger and stronger with each accomplishment.  Well, here are a few pictures of her big day.

Alyssa's brother and sister.  Ryan will be graduating college in a few years.
           I have 2 years to get my emotions back in check.

         Family party at her apartment.  Not bad for a college pad.

                                She made it and I am one proud momma.

Congratulations Alyssa.  Now for the next chapter in the wonderful life God has given you.
