Grace Brannon, College Grad.

Last weekend, we took the dogs to Kelly Run Farm, and headed over to Rome, GA for one last time (for Grace at least) to celebrate Grace's graduation! Here are some pics from the weekend. We are so proud of Grace. Berry was an excellent college for her and she worked very hard while she was there. For those that do not know, Grace was at Berry College on a volleyball scholarship in addition to a Winshape scholarship, which gives her some money and let her live in the same special dorm for all 4 years. She was 1 of 50 other students chosen from 100's. In return, she had to commit to not drink or do drugs all 4 years. Because of her faith, that was like asking Grace to came naturally to her...even after turning 21 her junior year and pressure from friends. This weekend, at 22 years old, Grace graduated from college, and finally had her first drink, which she chose to have with my daddy at our Mexican dinner Saturday night. It was amusing, and, of course, I documented it (see pic below). I'm so proud of her and the commitment she upheld to Berry and the Winshape program. Good job, Gracie!

Our BEAUTIFUL graduate!!!
