My Amazing Progeny!

I’m feeling the need to brag about my children. They are, in my opinion, fantastic!

Dillon  is 25 and Cassidy  just turned 22. They both graduated, with honors, from Dakota Ridge High School. Dillon in 2004 and Cassidy in 2008.

Dillon graduated from University of Colorado Boulder in 2010 with a BA in English and a minor in Technology, Arts and Media. Cassidy is a senior at University of Wyoming and will graduate in May 2012 with a BFA in Theatre & Dance – Technical Theatre, concentration Lighting Design.

Both are talented in the arts. Dillon in graphic design and art in other media. Cassidy with her eye for color and light, is also a musician playing classical guitar.

They are hard working kids. Dillon uses his talents working for Modern Distribution Management (MDM) creating graphics for their website with other duties as assigned. He also works for Starbuck’s (has since high school) where he has distinguished himself as a shift supervisor and brew master, as well as an artist. Cassidy works in the electrics shop for the theatre department and as a caregiver at ARK on the weekends. She balances that with classes, homework and shows.

Both are beautiful, unique individuals. They are growing to be responsible adults. I have much to be proud of with these two!

I love you both infinitely!

    Kids are fantastic. They make you crazy, but give back so much love and inspiration, the effort becomes a great investment. I am sharing in your joy of your daughters new job and in your son's continued success.

    Thanks Jody! I totally agree. After I wrote this, my daughter informed me that she was hired as the summer stock lighting designer (you were there when this happened) at Theatre West in Scottsbluff, NE and then my son told me that he received a bonus from his graphic design job at MDM. They continue to amaze me.
