~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This past Saturday afternoon, Brittany graduated from the Sun Dome at the University of South Florida (USF) along with the graduating class of 4,276. What a huge crowd attended! The Sun Dome just finished a $35.6 million dollar renovation, and guess what? The elevator broke!

 (None of the photos I shot turned out, so I got this from the web site.)



All four grandparents came to applaud Brittany. Our seats were on the third tier. Johnny and I wore Blue.



Allen, Sharon, Aja, and Kelley, two of Brittany's friends sat in the section above us. Both Sharon and Aja are in Blue



It was cloudy outside, but it didn't rain. Here's our DIL, granddaughter, and son.



Brittany is the middle daughter of our son and daughter-in-law. Her major is music--preforming voice.



Here's Johnny, me, and our beautiful Brittany after the degree was conferred. Happy, happy day.



Happy Blue Monday!

Good morning Sally, I just finished my post this morning. A bit late. I have wanted to do this post for a couple of weeks.

Congratulations to Brittany. She is smart and beautiful. I know how proud you are of her accomplishment. I'm proud of her too and wish her every success in her future endeavors.

Your photos are treasures. I too go to the web for needed photos from time to time. Your whole family is to be congratulated for the motivation to seek higher education in their lives. You and Johnny are great mentors.

My favorite photos are all the grands and you and Johnny with Brittany. I love your post today.
Love you too,
Jeanne

It is wonderfulthis day and time when the kids or grands graduate. Seems the young folks are all messed up. So many are doing crazy things. You are fortunate having yours doing so well. I am not sure I could have sat through that many students tho.

What a wonderful occasion for Brittany, and to have all her grandparents present too! I noticed particularly the lovely red hair, my niece is a redhead too. My youngest daughter graduated last May.
