With mommy...

Tim and I thank God that our daughter, Shannon, finished one more step in her pursuit of education.    No end is ever an end...instead every end is a beginning.  Her graduation marks the start of her college life. This truth was translated by George, my father-in-law, when he asked me if I was losing a young kid or gaining a new adult child.  We tend to assume that ends are stop signs.  However, they are only markers of change.  As Shannon completed all the finals and AP exams she was, at the same time, working on some details of her preparation for a new life in away from home. 

University of California (Irvine) here she comes...
