OFFICER EGAN

We made a quick trip to Boise yesterday.
We wanted to be there for Nate's graduation from POST.

Peace Officer Standards & Training.
After 2 1/2 years in North Dakota away from family for weeks at a time.
Then 10 weeks at POST...
They can finally be together!
All the time.
Woohoo for that!

It was a very nice ceremony.


We are pretty proud of that kid!

That is definitely cause to be proud. I know it was a taxing 12 weeks when Ryan had to be at POST (both on him as well as the family). I felt so proud of him during the graduation video-- I'm sure, as a mother, your buttons were popping!

How exciting! One of my brothers was a policeman and what a rewarding, though difficult, career. I do admit though that when my son was a senior in high school he said he wanted to be a football coach. I discouraged him (his dad had been a coach and it's a hard life with much time away from family). He said, "Ok mom, then I want to be a policeman on a SWAT team and be the guy that kicks in the door. " I quickly paid his tuition at a nearby teacher's college where he could major in coaching. :) blessings, marlene

So glad you were able to be at his graduation. I know it meant the world to you.
