Graduation day!

100_3638(1)

Well here I am people … better late than never! Sorry to keep you all waiting but there was some partying to be done tonight … I will save that for another post though!

Today I graduated alongside a totally wonderful group of people to become a Certified Ranger Educator … and I am chuffed … totally chuffed!

So here we all are with Lord Tim of Holtz … you know Tim … the man that can turn Raisons into a chocolate fountain while tight rope walking across a 35000 ft ravine to save a small Ground Hog with just an alcohol ink pen and a distress re-inker.100_3640(1)

I will fill you all in on day 3 just as soon as I land in the UK … for now let me introduce some amazing people behind the scenes at Ranger U. These guys are totally committed to ensuring all the students have the best experience … so without further ado …

The super Patti who worked sooooo hard for the last three days making sure we all had wh100_3641(1)at we needed … trust me … that is a lot harder than it sounds! Thank you Patti. I am sure she worked really hard for a lot longer than the three days too … the event was so well organised … but you know what I mean … right???

Mario who just made sure we had the best donuts and lunch and candy and donuts and candy ever ever … always charming and smiling and helpful … Thank you Mario … you were tops!

Well that is me for now … I need sleep and I have a flight to catch … I promise to be back with all of the details as soon as I can …

Laters!

WOWEE Linda....many congratulations on your graduation. There will be no stopping you now. Well done to those who have made yours and other Ranger U students another successful experience.

Congratulations Linda well deserved carn;t waite to hear all the stories hugs chiz x

Allyson said...

Well done Linda, not that there was ever any doubt about you making it. Anyone who's taken one of your classes knows that you were 'certified' ages ago. (ROFL)
I'm so glad you had a great time and I notice you're standing really, really close to Sir Tim in that photo, was that so you were ready to bundle him into your case so you could bring him home? Does this mean he'll be guesting in your classes from now on? See you on the 30th.

Rosie said...

Hope the jet lag isn't too bad .. sounds as if you've had a brilliant time and have some lovely memories to keep? Will we have to pay to talk to you now that you're Certified??

Lottie said...

Congratulations-so looking forward to attending some lessons not that you are well and truly certified.

Jenny said...
