Graduation Celebration for TRACE

Mike is so very proud of his nephew Trace, who is also his "God-son"
We travelled to Las Vegas this past weekend to celebrate our nephew Trace's graduation from high school.

Here are the brothers Tony (Trace's Dad) and older brother Mike

Here's Linda (Trace's mom) and me. Linda is such a dear sister-in-law. I love her!

Trace has been accepted to the University of Oregon for the Fall semester. The school mascot is "The Duck" and the school colors are green and yellow.

We walked down the hall and as we turned the corner we saw...

University of Oregon T-shirts for everyone!

Then we started seeing "ducks" and bits of green and gold everywhere!

Linda thought of everything...

including "slippers"!

Aren't they cute?

Even the pool had ducks, thanks to Trace's sister, Dani.

Hi Barb, congratulations to Trace! I loved the duck theme. And the duck slippers are adorable. Very creative. Oregon seems like a great university.

This is great - creativity at its best - a thoughtful relationship and a laugh. Good luck to Trace with the next part of his life's formation. menehune

What fun! I visited Duck country in Oregon once. It is a very cool college town. Congratulations to Trace!
