 Lastly, I am sharing a happy family photo that took place last Saturday. My son received his Bachelor Degree in System Design Engineering. He is looking forward to taking on his first full time job as an R & D Engineer this late summer!
We are immensely proud of David and his achievement.  Who knew the so-called "difficult child" turns out to be well-adjusted, pleasant and responsible adult!? We are very blessed!
