Graduation 2010

Graduation is over for 2010. It was such a bittersweet event, I just can't believe my grandson is on his way to college! I never realized how fast time flew by until I had grandchildren.
This is a picture of Derrick and his Aunt Jess at Awards Night. He received a huge scholarship and many other awards. I know he will do just as well at Butler University as he did in high school.


This next picture was taken at the party after graduation. Derrick, Aunt Jess, and cousins Jenna and Leah. Derrick is one of those guys that really love his little cousins and has been such a good role model for them. We'll certainly miss having him close to home but a road trip to Indy will be fun too!

Check out the picture at the end of my posts on this page. That is a picture of Derrick and his mother, who passed away from Cancer when he was only 5. I know she is looking down from heaven with a proud smile on her face!

Congratulation on his graduation and your wonderful family. I am sure his mom's smile is just as full of love and pride in heaven as it is in the picture!
