To our surprise and delight we found out just before my Mr. AGPMan walked across the stage to receive his diploma that indeed he was graduating with honors, Cum Laude.  Just had to share a few photos taken yesterday afternoon during the graduation ceremony at Southern Nazarene University in Bethany, Oklahoma.

I'd love to show pics of him actually shaking hands with SNU President, Loren Gresham (his former/1975 Poli-Sci Professor!), but I was bawling my head off so I don't have one.  Thankfully the school snapped a professional shot we'll be able to purchase online in a few days.

After the grad ceremony we had a wonderful party at our home with lots of family and friends.  I'm loving this photo taken of my guy with our beautiful Miss K.

Today starts a new day! 

Thanks to all of you who sent cards and well wishes and left sweet comments during this special time.  We are happy to close this chapter in our lives and we are excited about pressing onward.

Blessings and love...

For some reason I am sitting here bawling. I guess I'm feeling your emotions of pride because I know how hard you have worked and sacrificed for this too.

Have yourself (with you sweet family) a Merry Little (BIG) Christmas Day!

I can't tell you how much I understand your utmost pride in your hubby! I cried throughout my hubby's graduation too (nearly cried reading your post!)& we knew that the future was going to hold many opportunities with God's guidance. I have pics with the kids & their dad too; such cherished memories! Have a wonderful Christmas!

Wow a hearty congratulations to Mr agpman! What a wonderful honor!

I didn't realize he graduated from SNU! We were in the Nazarene church for ages and have many friends and family that went there.

Now you guys can relax and enjoy each other with out the pressure of school!
