J.G. Moon, RN, BSN

Jessie passed her nursing boards and she is an RN now. A real, true, RN.
She called us this morning to tell us.

She called me two days ago after she took the test and told me that she thought she'd failed. Ha-ha! That girl.

Oh. That girl.

Well, here are a few pictures of her, growing up. I would go on and on about Jessie Moon and what a joy she's been as a daughter and a friend and for the entire world and universe but, well, everyone already knows that.

Jessie and her beloved Papa

So. There she was, here she is, living life the way she's always lived it, dancing, dancing, singing, playing, working, loving, being joyful.

And now she's a nurse.

Congratulations, Jessie Moon.
We're all so proud of you.

Love...Mama and Daddy

  15. To All- Thank-you so much. Jessie is off at some river this weekend with Vergil at a big ol' going-away party for a friend of theirs and when she gets home she'll read all of this and she will be happy.
    Melissa- I love that you guys still love each other. That is one of my most favorite pictures ever. I am so glad you took it!

  16. Congrats to your Jessie. She is such a light.

  17. Sniffle. You done good, Moon. Last one out the gates and not a loser in the bunch.

    You must be so proud. I know I am.

  18. Oh thank thank you, sweet blog family. I am so happy and proud and content to be an RN.
    But as dad asked, "So now that you're an RN, are you going to start playing music?" My answer... maybe. :)

    Hehe, it's job hunting time.

  19. Congratulations, dear Jessie! We love you and are SO very proud of you. The world is lucky to get you.



Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
