Graduation

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
The last of my "little" ones is graduating tonight. Eric

A proud moment in my life and also a sad one. Time has gone by so fast.

His plans are Junior College for two years then off to University of Buffalo to be a Pharmacist.

He gave up the chance to play Football at a few colleges who made offers but none with an acredited Pharmacy School. Top 10% of his class.

We're so proud of Him and I just wanted to share that with my friends here.

Good for him. Sounds like he has his head on right - this apple didn't fall from the tree.

We leave in a half an hour or so for graduation. Matt J. aka freeskinow is the speaker. I can't believe it's here.

He's off to UNH next year. I hope he invites me up to take a few runs with him. It doesn't sound like he will though.

Thanks old friend.

I tried to talk him into being a dentist since he's had a few teeth knocked out.

Tried to save a few bucks to get them fixed. (alterior motive)

I'm gonna need drugs in my old age.

You know these moments in life are coming but you are never quite prepared for the tears of joy.

Tis true that your life with your son won't ever be the same, but there are some phenominal things ahead.
Embrace it!

Congratulations Lars and of course Eric. He looks like he'll be a ripping pharmacist.

If fact its hard to see him behind a counter from this angle...
Maybe, on top of it?

Great picture isn't it?

Copper Mountain on a nice february day.

He Snowboards also. He's better on a board but when he's with his Brother he skis.

Was the School MVP in both Football and Baseball. Made all state as a linebacker and is nominated for Baseball also as a Catcher. Won't know if he made it for Baseball for a couple weeks yet. Honor Student, We are so proud.

Last night was awesome but sad.

He's off to another rung on the ladder of successes. A man with a plan is exciting to watch. Best to you, Lars!

Thank you Bonni, So far so good.

Life is a struggle with lots of peaks and valleys in the way of success.

I can only hope for success all the way. It's all in his hands now. Lets hope he can stay the course.

I graduated about a month ago. On to the next step. Only 8 years to go (at the least).

Graduation

Lars, congratulations to you both. Tell your son theres a shortage of pharmacists in the pacific northwest, great powder, no crowds and he can write his own ticket for his choosen profession and then you will have a real good excuse to come out and stay and visit - during the winter of course.

Congrats Lars.

My first one graduated a few weeks ago. I'll be in your shoes in about 10 more years.

To the contrary Lars! Your contributions may change a little, but they will still be huge whether you know it or not. Congratulations!

Congratulations to all associated with a graduation.

Last week we went to the graduation party for my youngest grandson. The event included an informal performance by the Saline Fiddlers ( http://www.salinefiddlers.com/ ), a group he's played the electric bass guitar for for the last four or five years. Here's a shot of one of his solo sections in the concert.



He's got a scholarship to study bass at the University of Minnesota, Moorhead.

Oh, yeah, he loves boarding.
