|Dad and Anna, The Graduate!|
On December 14th Mom and I traveled to Jefferson City for Anna's Graduation from University of Missouri in Columbia. It's been only two in a half years since Anna graduated from High School! Yet Anna has completed her Bachelor Degree in Occupational Therapy. On top of this achievement Anna graduated Summa Cum Laude! An amazing young lady! In the morning Julie and I attended an awards ceremony for those graduating with honors. Afterwards we went for some coffee and breakfast at a local coffee shop and then went to Anna's apartment to meet Jennifer and Grandma Pat and get ready for the graduation ceremony.

Debbie also dropped in at Hoppies. It had been years since I saw Debbie. One of the nights we were at Mom's, Don arranged for the family to get together for dinner at Rizzo's in South County.
