Daughter Sheri's Graduation

Our daughter Sheri graduated from the local community college yesterday with a two year degree in Business Administration.  She graduated with honors.

That is quite an achievement when you figure: she is a mom of two boys, the youngest she homeschools; she is a wife; she and her husband, Patrick, run an excavation business from their home.  With all of that, she took her courses at night and via the Internet.  We are sooooo proud of her.  Congratulations Sheri!!!

Her goal now is to continue her education toward a degree in accounting and become a CPA.
