Celebrate This Week: August 1st

Carly and Rita goofing around and celebrating sisterhood years ago. It is time to celebrate again.
This week I am celebrating the accomplishments of my daughters, Rita and Carly.

Rita obtained a Master's Degree in Education in June and secured a new teaching position as a middle grades math teacher 3 minutes from her home. For the past several years she has had to commute over 45 minutes to get to work. Yay for Rita!

Carly will be starting work as a receptionist at the hospital next week. This is not her dream job but a transition job, hoping to gain experience that will enhance her chances of getting into graduate school. Since April she has probably applied to over 100 jobs, an arduous task. Yay for Carly.

Discover. Play. Build.


  1. I love having adult children who are learning their own way into the world. I have three professional daughters. Yay for yours!

  2. The jobs are not so easy to find, so congratulations to both your daughters. I hope they love the work, and have good colleagues.

  3. Yay for young adults who are gainfully employed! It's fun to watch them grow as they take on the real world and reach new achievements. Hooray for Carly and those countless job applications! Hooray for Rita and her new teaching position! Love the goofy glasses, we had those too!

  4. Congratulations to both of your children. These are great accomplishments. I love the photo!

  5. Great picture - it put a smile on my face. Your daughters are lucky to have such a wonderful cheer leader in their corner.
