The Graduate!

Greg graduated from Cal Poly Pomona.

LtoR: Grandma Shirley, Grandma & Grandpa Utter (who came from Arkansas), Greg, Dad & Wenona, nieces Kourtnie & Launa, sister Erika and cousin Vicki.

We all traveled down the night before and stayed in a hotel so we could be there bright and early. The graduation was very nice and we're so proud of Greg.
The next day we had a combination Father's day/graduation brunch at our house.
The family had fun and Glenn & Greg both received some great gifts.
I've been working for months on an afghan for Greg. It was supposed to be a graduation gift but I knew I wouldn't finish it on time. I figured that was okay because I really wanted to give it to him when he moved into his first apartment. He surprised us by telling us that he was moving to Chicago a week after graduation. I showed him the afghan and told him it'll be in the mail.
Greg acting surprised!Glenn & I took Greg to the airport and he's now in Chicago. He and his friend, Chris, got an apartment. Greg has been interviewing for several jobs. We'll get to see Greg in August when we go to Oklahoma for our niece, Amber's, wedding. Amber & Jim live in Chicago too, not far from Greg.
Greg, we're proud of you and we miss you!
