We went out to Beloit, KS where Matthew has been for the last 9 months in the Heavy Equipment Operator Program for graduation.
Sorry for the blurry picture. This is what happens when I zoom in too far on my phone.
There was a really touching moment when the President of the college gave a diploma to the mom of a military man killed in action. One of the young man's goals was to graduate from college so his mom wrote the school and they helped fulfill his dream. There were tears from young and old alike.
Congratulations Matthew! You made it!
Ahhh... the power of prayer! :)
