Bill's Graduation

Finally we have made it to the big day.
Billy graduated with Cum Laude honors in Elementary Education and Math from Concord University on the 16th of December 2006.

Here he is outside the auditorim before the ceremony.

The line of people in the middle of this picture include his mother, two of his sisters, one brother-in-law, one nephew and one fiancee niece.

Here is "the Man" again waiting his turn to go across the stage.
My stage crossing picture was no good.

He started working "YEAH!" on 2 January. The math degree is what did it, there are plenty of available elementary school teachers, but not one of them was certified in math. So, with 3 math positions available in the county, he was hired before he even graduated. Nice thing about it is that he is working only two miles from the house.

Today is the last day of his first week at work. Things have been going pretty well. The kids don't know what to think of him yet and the other teachers like the environment he creates. I am very happy for him. He is a wonderful husband and a great teacher. The world needs more people like him.
