It has been so busy here in Scranton – and all around us. I just returned from a week of House Sitting and Pet Sitting for my son and daughter-in-law. In addition to the kitten we found in our basement and promptly took into our home (and who has fit in purrrfectly here), his three siblings were also found and taken in – upstairs to a spare bedroom. We will adopt them out – to people we know. I am still caring for JB, my beautiful boy who has cancer – that cat has a will to live! One of the happiest things that’s happened recently is my oldest son, Michael has graduated from college. On Friday, May 10th Michael received his Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Temple University in Philadelphia. We are over the moon and very proud.
Michael was an easy baby, and a good boy to raise. He never, ever gave us a bit of trouble. He took the long way to get his degree, but he did it. Michael has worked consistently and constantly since he turned sixteen years old. He has always worked in the Food Industry. For most of his college life, he has worked full time during the day and went to classes full time in the evenings. All of his hard work has paid off. We had a great day for his graduation. The ceremony was very nice, and his Dad took us all out for a wonderful dinner celebration that evening.
All he needs now is a full time teaching job. He is in the minority, as most males who enter college intending to be in education tend to gravitate towards Middle or High School. Michael wants to work with the little ones. His favorite student teaching assignment was with Kindergarteners!
Allow me to share some pictures of him. We are ALL so proud. His father and I, his brother Chris and Michael’s girlfriend Alex are pictured here. What a happy day!
