Graduation Day

If the rain holds off - we will be sitting in some of these chairs for the Graduation ceremony on Saturday morning.

Unfortunately, this is the weather prediction - what a week!

It doesn't really matter - we are happy and proud of our son (eight semesters on the Dean's list!) and our family is together.

We enjoyed all of the activities today (Jazz Brunch, President's Reception and Baccalaureate Service) and the boxes are nearly packed for the move home.  How do you like the new hairstyle?  (apparently, "the cap will fit better this way"!)

The chairs are set up outside - let's hope that they will be used and we won't be forced into the field house.  This photo is for my Dad to show the string grid they used to lay out the seating - just the sort of thing he would figure out.

We had a delicious dinner and will be up bright and early to take it all in - rain or shine!

This is a PPP - Purely Personal Post - mostly for family members but many of my blog readers feel like extended family so I am sharing it here.  The next discussion topic should post later today.  The Blogger outage has things a bit confused but I hope we will soon be back on track.
