Although the thermometer read 45 it was a 1,500 Degree day in West Lafayette

Although the thermometer read 45 it was a 1,500 Degree day in West Lafayette !!!!

 

Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana awarded over 1,500 diplomas in graduation ceremonies this past Sunday, and my daughter Janelle was one of the graduates earning her Bachelor of Science Degree in the College of Technology at Purdue!  Way to go Janelle!!!

We are so proud of Janelle as she earned her way into Purdue by completing three years of community college at Ivy Tech,  and working at the Purdue Federal Credit Union.  She has graduated from college debt free as she was able to work while attending Ivy Tech and Purdue.

I never attended the graduation ceremonies at Purdue University  when I earned my Bachelors and Masters Degrees so it was very special seeing my two daughters graduate at Purdue in the Elliot Hall of Music with over 5,000 people in attendance!

Even though the thermometer reads 37 this morning in West Lafayette it is a FOUR Degree day in the Walter household!

 

Disclosure:  This post was written by a very proud Dad who is so pleased that both his daughters graduated sooner from Purdue than their Dad, as he managed to CRAM four years of classes into FIVE years!

Yet, we have 80F days these last days of January. You can not hate that, right? My daughter just got 15 too. They grow too fast!

Inna, its hard to not like an 80 degree day in January!!!   Sharon loved it Orange County in mid February when we attended the KW Convention in Anaheim in 2011.  She just loved the mild weather and how clean everything was.
