Remember in my last post I mentioned that my baby sister is having a year full of milestones? In addition to her getting married in June, she also completed her PhD program in Communication Disorders at UMass Amherst a couple of weeks ago. So, while not a medical doctor, she worked so diligently for the past four years and has certainly earned those three shiny letters at the end of her name! Congrats, Alyssa. I’ll be sure to call you the next time I think Lucy has an ear infection. Heehee. I’m going to have fun with this, can you tell?
When she completed her masters she said, “I want one of those,” pointing to the striped robes and floppy hats. You wear it well, my friend.
So proud of you. Oh so proud.
So many emotions. Such cuteness.
We also congratulated ourselves on being a successful support team!
You are as brilliant on the inside as you are on the outside, lil’ sis. I admire you more than you realize. Here’s to you, Alyssa, on an impressive 26 years as a student! Love you lots.
