Nigel's Graduation:

Last Friday, Cary, Mom and I drove to Astoria to watch our boy graduate from the Tongue Point Job Corps.  Nigel graduated with honors and was the student speaker at the ceremony.  What a great speech he gave!  Nigel studied Finance and Business during the 16 months that he has been there so far.  Today, he began his first day of classes at the local community college.  Congratulations, Nigel!

Here are some of my favorite pictures that I took of the graduation ceremony:
