Hey buddy! You know I wouldn't miss it for the world! Denise and I are already planning to be there, and I will call to see where the rest of the family is sitting. I am so happy for you, because I know how hard you have worked and sacrificed for this.
How about an all expenses paid caching excursion for a graduation gift? We could jump in my new Jeep and head for points unknown and caches unfound! :D :D :D

Will Congratulations for completing what so few of us have been able to do.
:oops: I am speaking for myself :oops:
You have done something very difficult, Work, Husband, Father and Student all at the same time.
You don't need a Diploma you need a Medal! :wink:
Now since you will have one less job, we will see about finding you something else to do like Geocaching :P to keep you occupied.

Will,

You should be so very very proud of yourself for perservering and completing this goal. We are proud of you and have admired you for a long time for trying to work, raise a family, and finish your education at the same time. Now that you've come this far, hang in there and never ever give up on your dreams.

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." Calvin Coolidge

What did you get your degree in? I am currently pursuing a degree while working and it's killer. I don't know how anyone could do it while being a husband and/or father.

I got a BS in Mechanical Engineering Technology from UALR. It was very tough but my family gave me a lot of support. The worst part was sleeping in my car!

Well extra congrats then. I got a BSME from the U of A in Fayetteville and I can attest to how super tough a degree it is.
