One Down, Two to Go....

Saturday, our first born graduated from College!
Seems like just yesterday, we were driving to the 
hospital, anxious to become first time parents
wondering what "it" would be
a Boy or a Girl....
Well, we were truly blessed with a girl and we couldn't be more proud!

The ceremony was held at
~Van Andel Arena~

Seating was first come first serve....
we were up quite high,
but we didn't care.

The graduates filed in from all angles....

carrying flags stating the "College of"....
 that they graduated from.

We watched for her
Red Shoes!
we found her!

Do you see her?
about the 4th or 5th row up
right in the middle!
Looking for us!

After a few speeches....
a few "other" graduates....
It's her turn to walk across the stage!
Mal, do you have the camera ready??
Get her on the BIG screen!

she tried!
I think she's the blue smear to 
the extreme left....
Oh Well!

Once again,
Sisters are always there to support each other!

So are Grandpa & Dad....
Couldn't be prouder!

Love you Amanda
We're So Proud of You!
