Wednesday our DD graduated from LPN school: the ceremony is called Pinning.

She has really worked hard and her husband has been extremely supportive. And we are really proud of her.

After the ceremony I gave her a graduation card with a note that there is a gift that is coming from two of her brothers and their wives, my sister and her husband and us. Then I handed her a picture of the gift.

She had been so proud of herself that she hadn’t cried but this did it.

The gift was on it’s way Fed Ex and in fact, he tried to deliver it to her house while she was getting pinned: 9:30 am. So today she waited for him to come back with it. She waited and waited and waited. She was afraid to get into the shower for fear it would start raining when he came. She didn’t want to get dressed until she could shower so she waited. She cleaned and cooked while she waited. And he came, at 7 pm he and the package came.

And this is what he brought. A bright purple Dell. And she will need it as she begins work on her RN.
