Last night my wife, Pam and I, in the company of our two youngest children and some friends attended our daughter Lauren’s High School Graduation from Abbotsford School of Integrated Arts. During the lengthy ceremony, Lauren received three scholarships, in addition to the UFV entrance scholarship that she had previously received.
I am as always proud of Lauren, as I know that this is one small step to her eventual destiny of running the world. The moment is also a little bittersweet as Lauren has always been my little buddy and companion, and now she is very close to spreading her wings and leaving the nest.
Lauren has enrolled at the University of the Fraser Valley to commence courses in September one of which will be a class in the Faculty in which I teach as she has signed up for Business 100. Lauren has her own vehicle and has made plans to move into a house with roommates in July. Although I am very proud of her independence I will miss her very much. She has indicated that she will come back to the house often as she plans on doing her grocery shopping at our house. I’m not sure what that means. Usually when the little bird leaves the nest, it finds its own worms.
I am also very proud of the fact that our oldest child, Andrew is expected to be enrolled in a couple of classes at UFV in the fall so that with my continued presence there will be three of our family attending the campus.
Congratulations to all of this years graduates.
