Field Trip with Professor Oliverson

What do you do when you are so proud of your child that


You burst the buttons right off your jacket?



Brag
, of course.

Chrissy is one week into her dream job;

Instructing at St. Philip's Junior College in San Antonio, TX.

This morning she invited me to see the campus

and Kinesiology Department, where she teaches.





It is a beautiful red brick campus with tree lined walkways.

The members of her department gave her a warm welcome.




Most of my life, my father instructed at Fresno City College; so being on Chrissy's campus felt very familiar. I have to admit, it plays with my head a little bit having a daughter grown up enough to be doing what my father did. But it felt right. When Chrissy was young, we were constantly after her to finish what she started. She silenced us a long time ago with her accomplishments and I truly respect her hard work ethic.





We had to celebrate, of course


So we headed to nearby Riverwalk

Now, if you'll excuse me,


I need to sew some buttons back on a jacket.

So my first reaction when I read your title was that you and dad must have spent the day with Zach's dad. In split seconds as I next saw that first picture I remembered that he is Dr. Oliverson and not only does Chrissy now share that last name with him but professor is her new title! That's so awesome for her and she looks like she is glowing and loving her new job.

Well, thank you for the compliment Brittany... and Momma. But really, I just think I look like such a jock from the back! Looking at myself walking away from the camera I look less than feminine. Dang exercises classes.

....and when did looking like a jock become a BAD thing? I think you look awesome!
