Red-letter day


Our daughter graduated at the University of Auckland yesterday. We were there to cheer her on as she walked in the procession from the university to the Aotea Centre and when she walked across the stage to receive her degrees from the Chancellor. It was a wonderful day of celebration for us and all the families at the ceremony – so much hard work, so much knowledge gained, so much support given and so much pride on display.

    Congratulations to you all, especially Rachel !!
    It’s hard to believe , they were small girls when you left SA and now you have independent daughters.
    Lots of love.

    Thanks Lyn. I know – the years have flown! But it is so good to know they’re on their way. Claire an engineer and Rachel a teacher and they both have gainful, useful employment. Much to be grateful for!
