(I started university after high school, but it wasn't right for me & at that moment in my life it wasn't the right time for me to be studying so I quit. At this point in my life I am happy with where I am & what I do, but maybe one day I will return, maybe).
Congratulations Nicole on graduating, we are all proud of you! Good luck with your new career and I hope this is just the start of big dreams & you achieve them all!
The small gift I got Nicole, she loves stars & it's a symbolic gift to her. My parents presented her with a solid gold bangle & a USQ graduation teddy bear.
Big hair for a big event!
My sister, the graduate!

My parents being very proud with Nicole!
The whole time all she wanted to do was throw her hat, so this is Nikki throwing her darn hat!
Yes I had to try her hat on, so these are my 'graduation' photos. I graduated from umm... domestic engineering? Housewife? I got my diamond diploma!
After the graduation the whole family went out for dinner at 'The Spotted Cow' in Toowoomba. It was great having the whole family together for a meal!
Trent & I.
Nicole & I. It was great to see Nikki, as she now lives about 12 hours away we don't see her very much, so it was great to catch up!
This photo was taken after dinner & I LOVE it! Everyone I love & care about it is right there in that very photo! They are my everything. (And yes, I am really that short, yep, the eldest & the shortest!)
So that was my Saturday, it was full of celebration, family, sore feet from high heels, love & being so proud. And I wouldn't have it any other way! Way to go Noodle, I knew you could do it, I am sure you will make a great nurse. Love you & miss you.
Love you all.
