Gratituesday~My College Graduate


Once upon a time, there was a girl named Valerie who loved adventure.

Valerie and Melissa

She loved her family.

A trip to the zoo~2007
 
She eventually fell in love and married Jake.
 
Jake returning from Iraq.
 
But Valerie also loved to learn. After 17 years of homeschool academia, she went on to learn some more. From teachers who knew more than how to dissect a frog, or how to diagram a sentence. Knew more about paper writing, mathematical equations, and sociological issues.  People who didn't know that Valerie once read through the letter "I" in the most popular series by Britannica. People who didn't know how seriously Valerie took her college classes or how many hours she actually spent studying for each one. People who didn't know that Valerie loved adventure, her family, or her Jake. People who knew only one thing.
 
Graduating with honors and two degrees, they knew that Valerie was going to make one heck of an amazing nurse.
 
 
Just as her first teachers knew all those years ago.
 
Two generations of RN's

Congratulations to the newest nurse in the family, Valerie D., RN!

Correction-- I didn't read all of "I" just the part about Ireland ;) I then made it about 1/4 of the way through "A" lol I was a weird child.
