Saturday, May 21st, was a rather big celebratory day for the deClouets as my sister and I both graduated from our respected institutions...her from Lafayette Hight School and me from McNeese State University with a Master's in Science in Nursing. We celebrated the way deClouets always do...with a large dinner (100 pounds of crawfish) and lots of friends.
What's next for us both? My sister starts college in Lafayette at the Unversity of Louisiana. She's a little unsure about her major (currently focused on moving out of the house), but that's hardly a reason to worry. She's going to do great at whatever she puts her mind to...that's just the kind of person she is.
As for myself. I have certification exams to take in about six weeks before I'm given a license to diagnose and treat. In the meantime it'll be more studying and applying for jobs in Arizona. The outlook is promising, and Karen and I are excited about the big move coming up at the end of July. However, we are planning on enjoying our last full summer in south Louisiana for a while, and are open to as many dinner invites as can be dished out ;)
