3 graduations in 3 states in 3 days…

Phew…just thinking we survived this makes me sweat! No, Ronny and I cannot say NO to things…especially important family events!

Last weekend, we started our adventure and headed to Fort Collins, CO to celebrate with our sister-in-law, Heather, who was graduating with Veterinary Medicine degree! She has put in lots of long, hard hours and she deserved this special day. She has an internship for the summer and is looking for a full-time job.

Here are the graduates…DSCI0021

And afterwards with the Popes…DSCI0039

She had a big group show up to support her!DSCI0056

We stuck around for lunch, then jumped in the car and headed to Kansas. We actually were unable to attend Ronny's cousin Billy’s graduation from K-State (BS in Animal Science), but we spent some quality time with Grandpa & Grandma Pope, who live in College Station, TX and don’t get to see a lot. But we’re super proud of Billy and got to visit with him the weekend before! Billy actually spent the entire spring semester in Costa Rica on study abroad. You can see view his blog here. He is interning with a dairy in Seneca, KS this summer, then will be headed to Michigan State in the fall for grad school.

After a short day at the Pope Ranch, we headed back north to Nebraska to my cousin, Megan’s graduation from high school. She actually graduated on Sunday, but her party was Saturday and a great time to see lots of family.

Megan will be attending UNL in the fall and planning to major in Speech Pathology. Even though she’s the ONLY grandchild not attending K-State (wink wink Meg) she will be very close to me! I’m hoping for some fall lunch dates. ;)

Here is Megan with a friend after the ceremony:megan grad

After our long weekend, on Sunday night we then went to a Seward Young Couples dinner…no slowing down for us! I’m still catching up on sleep…zzzzzz.
