Certificate in Genealogical Research

I was presented the Certificate in Genealogical Research from Boston University’s Center for Professional Education. The program was very challenging and I spent a lot of time and effort in completing the cirriculum. Many thanks to all of my family and friends for their support. Now it’s time to get back to blogging!

Wordless Wednesday – Kaylyn Michelle Davis Then and Now

May 26th, 2010 No comments

My daughter, Kaylyn Michelle Davis, was born 5/25/05 at The Woman’s Hospital of Texas in Houston. The picture on the left was her first after birth. Kaylyn was premature and spent several weeks in the neonatal intensive care unit. The picture on the right was taken yesterday, 5/25/10, at her 5th birthday preschool party. She’s come a long way in five years… so grown-up and ready for Kindergarten!
