Today was a big day for my sister! Jill graduated from Anderson University today. She graduated with a degree in nursing and we couldn't be more proud of her. Nursing school has been nothing short of a challenge, and she has conquered it! At the moment, Jill in a "graduate nurse" until she takes her NCLEX. Once that is over with, she will officially be a registered nurse. So exciting!
We drove to Anderson Friday night to try and make Jill's pinning ceremony. Unfortunately, the traffic prevented us from making it on time, so we just met the family for dinner at Olive Garden. Today we headed back up to AU for graduation. Don't worry, we didn't miss it! It was a long ceremony but a very proud moment for me and my family. It was FREEZING today so luckily the ceremony was indoors. I couldn't have imagined sitting outside for two whole hours.
I know I said it earlier, but we really are proud of Jill. She has accomplished so much and we can't wait to see what God has in store for her in the future. She is a very caring and compassionate person and will make a great nurse. I know that leaving AU is bittersweet for her, but I will definitely be glad to have her closer to home. Congratulations sis! We love you!
