Graduation





Pinning ceremony for nursing

The big moment of "walking"

Hooray!

Although Reini officially graduated with her nursing degree from Westminster College in December, last weekend was the graduation ceremony. May 30 was the pinning ceremony for the nursing department. The pinning tradition goes all the way back to Florence Nightingale when she gave each of the nurses who studied under her pins as a symbol of their achievement. The following day was the school convocation. This was the big official "walk" across the stage.

I am so proud of Reini! She has worked so hard these last several years, many times wondering if the light would ever appear at the end of the tunnel, but she made it! Way to go babe! I love you!
