Congratulations Sweet Daughter

I drove to San Luis Obispo with my dad yesterday to see BKP win two awards from the Orfalea School of Business. She was one of 12 students in the Business College to graduate Summa Cum Laude. Additionally she was recognized as the Most Outstanding Graduating Student in International Business. A high honor indeed. We are so proud of her. She is graduating in three years, without summer school, with an almost 4.0 GPA. Her professor talked about how BKP's extensive background in foreign travel helped her bring a fresh perspective to her classes. BKP not only asked thought-provoking questions, but also brought humor to classes that really needed humor. The professor told how BKP had completed one quarter in Thailand and also studied Mandarin in China, and told how her grandpa had owned his own business and was an inspiration to her. That made my dad cry. By the end of this long speech BKP was a little wobbly. She had just gotten her wisdom teeth pulled that morning, and although her teeth were fine, her stomach was not! She has plenty of wisdom, and the drive and discipline to succeed in life. What's the use of having a blog if you can't brag about your kids, right?
