The Graduate

Well, it took me a while, but I did it. I graduated from college today and commenced upon a new phase in my life. It's exciting and I think it will feel more real tomorrow after I have slept on it.

I'm a college graduate!

  1. And a mighty good graduation it was! You planned a great weekend of celebratory events which we enjoyed immensely. All the meals, the parties, the 5K walk, and all the visiting were just terrific. CONGRATULATIONS again on your accomplishment at Evergreen and the other significant things you have done over the past few years. You are really something!! We love you, dear Rob!

  2. CONGRATS ROB!!! You look quite scholarly now!

  3. Thanks Mom, I enjoyed the weekend too! And I love you too!

    Alice, Thank you! I may look scholarly, but looks aren't everything!

  4. You do look damn scholarly! I loved that weekend, too. I really wouldn't trade it for anything. I love you so much!
