Blue Monday - Graduation Day Times Two!

Hello! It's Blue Monday! For instructions, just click here.

After you've linked in, it's a good idea to check your link. I continue to find
defective links. (That prevents comments from coming your way.) Sometimes I can fix a defective link, and so I do. But on occasion, there is a link that cannot be fixed by me. If the Blogger has left a comment, I can notify that person, but (alas!) if no comment has been left--can you imagine THAT--I cannot notify the Blogger of the error and have no choice but to delete the link. {sigh}

Click on each other's links and spread some joy by wishing them a Happy Blue Monday!

May 5th, Johnny and I traveled to Gainesville, Florida, to celebrate two graduates! Here we are with Caeli, wearing her honor cords around her neck. See, the Blue cords? Her tassel is also Blue and orange, the school's colors. Do we look proud or what?

She's holding the Undergraduate Student Academic Achievement Award that she was presented.

As winner of that award, Caeli was honored to speak for her graduating class. This shot was taken by her Uncle Allen, our son, using his cell phone. I know it's a bit blurry, but you can still see some Blue in the background, the sign on the podium, and her cords and tassel.

Here's Caeli at her home with plenty of Blue.

Caeli's younger sister, Ara, graduated May 4th from Santa Fe Community College with honors and her AA degree. This is a shot of our son-in-law, Michael, Ara, and our daughter, Debi. This Fall, Ara plans to attend the University of Florida to continue the work on her Bachelor's. There is a touch of Blue in her honor cords. We're super proud of her too!

I hope you had a good Mother's Day. I certainly did.
I'm including pictures of the beautiful Blue blooms Debi sent me for Mother's Day.

I have no idea the name of these flowers; they look like small roses. Do you know what they're called?

Happy Blue Monday!

LV said...

Sally, you definitely have a family to be proud of. These young ladies are a fine example of what you can do with your life If you want to. Best wishes to each of them. You found plenty of blues to share and the flowers are lovely. I have been trying to learn the new version of posting. I trust what I have done is working. It takes me forever to figure out what to do and then redo most of the times. I may not have many post for awhile until I get more familiar with the procedures. Bear with me.

Diann said...

Congrats to both of the lovely young ladies! Wonderful blues!

beautiful blue post, Sally.

You are looking sooo good..a sign you ARE feeling better. I am wondering if you have had time to enjoy your pretty new home...seems you got sick right after you moved in. I do hope you are "up to" doing more things and are enjoying your new home.:)

Of course you are proud (your grandchildren are copies of your daughter). Mother's Day is the end of May in Sweden, wonder if I get just as beautiful flowers you got? ;)
Have a great Monday!

You must be so proud of those two beautiful girls. I know they worked hard to gain the honors awards, just icing on a grandmother's cake, right?!?! Thanks for sharing those exciting events with us. I linked up my breakfast room "before and after". Thanks for hostessing the party - this is my first time joining in on the fun. Hugs ~ Mary
