Emily graduated this past Sunday from University of Dayton - the last one of our 4 typical children to graduate from college. It seems like it was just yesterday when she was a little girl bouncing through each day with so much enthusiasm. When she was two years old, she used to say all the time, “Happy Day.” It was so cute and precious. And Sunday was an extremely happy day for us. We are very proud of her. Emily received a B.S. degree with a major in Biochemistry. She graduated with Summa Cum Laude honors.
After the ceremony, our family went to Don Pablo’s and enjoyed Mexican food. The only downside was the service wasn’t the best. My husband, sister-in-law, and son didn’t get what they ordered. When my husband mentioned it to the server, she switched their plates. It was unbelievable and funny to see her do this. Switching them didn’t solve the problem. Obviously, if anyone had received someone else’s dinner, they would’ve switched them without mentioning anything to her. She never brought the right dinners. Some didn’t get the drinks they ordered. And the ones that did get the soft drinks had mostly ice with little beverage in them. My husband asked for a refill but never got it.
If you leave a comment on my blog this week, your name will be entered in a drawing for a copy of No Other by Shawna K. Williams. Shawna will be here on Wednesday - you’ll love hearing about her new book. It takes place in post WWII Texas.
