My girls...

Rose and Molly
... well, two of them anyway. You might remember this time last year Rose graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Arts. I was there. This year I wasn't there, but she still managed to graduate. This time with Honours. Again, she looks so happy! I talked to her the other day about her graduation and how happy she was last year. She said that she would be just as happy this year because she was proving all her detractors wrong. Can you believe that her high school art teacher told her not to apply for Visual Arts at university because she wouldn't be any good at it and would fail? She didn't. She did well. Now she is in the midst of a Masters Degree. (Instead of paying to travel to see her graduate we put the money towards her Master's Degree book buying fund. It seemed to be a sensible idea.) Her sister and brother were there to see her graduate as well as her partner. I think she had a very good day.

You must be very proud of your chickens. That teacher needs to be sacked, if you ask me! What a ridiculous thing to say. I hope Rose posts her a copy of all her parchments together with a big Ptttfffth (raspberry sound)and a picture saying - 'remember me??"!

We got to see our Kirby graduate on Tuesday - I'm blogging about it soon! :)

Cheers - Joolz

Lovely photo of your girls. Rose looks very happy. Good for her proving her teacher wrong. It's great when they do that. Richard Branson (not sure of the spelling) of Virgin fame was told that he would never amount to anything by one of his teachers. Well he sure proved them wrong didn't he.

Congrats! Just goes to show if you want something badly enough you will excel! My teacher "suggested" I leave the sewing class to do typing as I would never be any good at sewing...the extra typing came in handy...I use that to help me earn money to spend on my sewing habit...LOL
