Default Proud Dad Moment

My wife and I have been blessed by the Lord when it comes to our three kids.

Most of you know my baby girl through multiple TBH hunting threads. Well, Ashton graduated last week with her Master of Science in Nursing - Nursing Administration at the young ol' age of 23.

My wife and I went Wednesday and watched the hooding ceremony and then Saturday escorted the family to watch her walk the stage to receive her diploma. She received her BSN and MSN from UTA and Wednesday was her first time to ever step foot on campus.

Can't be more proud of her education accomplishments, but more than that, in the way her and her husband lives their life's.

Just thought I would brag a tad before killing season started.

That's absolutely awesome! My daughter is also attending UTA in the same nursing program. My sister was an RN her entire career and my daughter idolized her.

Nursing is such an honorable profession that will always be in demand. Well done Ashton and congrats to mom and dad too!

I appreciate all of your kind comments.

Yes, she is extremely marketable but really enjoys her current position with Baylor Scott and White, ICU lead nurse; 3 on 4 off. Plus they paid for her Masters and now she owes them 12 months of employment.

Again thanks.
