Graduates

Congratulations to my twin sister Lynna and sister-in-law's sisters Brigette and Yvette!! All of these graduates went to Cal State East Bay in Hayward. Lynna got her Bachelor of Science in Math, Yvette got her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, and Brigette got her Master's Degree in Public Administration. We are so proud of them all!
Brigette's ceremony was on Saturday, which I was unable to attend. But today I went to the BA ceremony, which was quite comical. Well- the Holland/Herras/ Willoughby family members ( I arrived later) - along with other graduates' loyal and faithful family members arrived TWO hours early in order to get the best seats. In fact, we all were seated in the 2nd and 3rd rows. When the ceremony started, a myriad of other graduates' family (latecomers) wanted to take pictures of their graduates and filled up the middle aisle squishing the people who had taken the initiative to come early for good seats. To say that this was a minor annoyance is an understatement. People were saying, "SIT DOWN. WE CAN'T SEE." A few stubborn latecomers and angry early birds kind of got into. Without going into all of the details, it was quite comical. This definitely added spunk to our day!
But we are so proud of these graduates who without a doubt worked hard to get their degrees! Congratulations Lynna, Yvette, and Brigette!!
