I finally graduated with my Master of Education in Counseling. It was a really hard summer, but it was worth it. I never walked when I got my Associates or Bachelors degrees, so I thought I would do it this one last time. It was a good experience. I enjoyed it. Some of my family was there and we took lots of pictures and then went to the Texas Roadhouse afterwards to eat. My family got me a gift card for graduation. I'm not going to say how much is on it, but I cannot possible spend it in one shopping trip! It was really too much, but I appreciate it greatly.

As I've said before, I've made many friends in graduate school. Four of them graduated with me last night. LeeAnn, who is an LPC in Amarillo, Emily, who is a counselor at a Jr. High in Amarillo, Fallon, who is a K-2 counselor in Borger, and Grace who is the counselor for WT High. Some of my other friends have already graduated, are about to in Dec. or have just started the counseling program. I would like to mention some of their names to let them know what good friends they are. Hope from Spearman, Anne from Texline, Kimberly from Stinnett, Misty from Idalou, Lyndy from Dimmitt, Janet from Guymon, Lisa from Pampa, Jennifer and Melissa from River Road, and all of these from different schools in Amarillo...Mercy, Pilar, Kevin, Delana, Audrey, Susan, Jane, and Rhonda. I'm sure I left out some, but these are the ones that I'm sure I will stay in touch with.

Here are a few pictures from last night.
