Winter Wonderland in Kirkland

White fluffy snow is not often seen in the Seattle Area.  Quite a blanket of snow covered the city.  though it was beautiful, business in the city just is at a standstill.

Kyler Graduates from Western Washington University!

Kyler is the speaker at commencement!

Kyler with the President of Western Washington University

I was the proudest Mom at the commencement program at Western Washington University Saturday December, 13th in Bellingham! Kyler was the the student speaker on the program and captured the attention of the students and faculty with her story about how she cried hysterically when I told her when she was very young that someday she would grow up and move away from home. "Mommy, I never want to leave home!" she wailed. With French quotes from Victor Hugo and President William J. Clinton she motivated her fellow graduates to pursue a career they loved and to get involved by volunteering in their community.
