Graduation- class 118

Last weekend was Billy's big day! Graduation from fire academy! Billy asked me a few days before if I would do the honor of pinning his badge at the ceremony :) I was proud to do it. He and the other two recruits were praised for their hard work throughout the 2 month academy, there were speeches, a slide show of pictures and a nice dinner too. Billy was sworn into service with the Montecito fire department.

His Mom, Brother Ian & Emmett, Dad & Grandma all came down for the special occasion. I'm so very proud of him for his determination, hard work and focus during this crazy & amazing transition from forest service to municipal department!!
(somehow I missed the opportunity to get a picture of all the family there together... sigh)


  1. Congrats to Billy! Hooray! He finally made it. So exciting.

  2. Congratulations to both of you. The Montecito Fire Department is lucky to have him.
