Proud Parents!

Congratulations to our daughter, Chelsea, who recently earned a degree in sociology from the University of Oregon.



Chelsea is an amazing human being.  She is very capable.  We always used to say that Chelsea didn't really need parents she could raise herself.  She assured us that was not true and that she really did need us!

In true Chelsea style, she completed her degree in just over three years.  Chelsea began working part time two years ago for the university in their brain development lab.  Her employer soon discovered her capabilities and offered her a full time job upon graduation.  She is officially a faculty member at the University of Oregon.  Nice work!

Chelsea has a passion for cooking and baking.  This passion inspired a cooking blog for the college student.  She hopes to inspire and educate college students to look beyond the basic take-out pizza and top ramen by showing them how to cook real food in a simple and budget friendly way.  Her blog is called A Duck's Oven.  Click here if you would like to visit!

Friends and family came together to celebrate this fine achievement.  In other words, we had a big bash for her last Saturday night!
