We have a graduate folks!

A few days ago, my eldest dropped by and pulled her cap and gown out of the plastic wrap, so I could press it for her.

We picked up a dessert cookie for the big day:

It was held here – big, big place folks. There are a lot of graduates hitting the job market this summer. Snap one up!

We got there late and it was hard to find seats, so we sat behind the stage where we could see her and make faces:

Here she is making faces back (blurry, sorry):

Here’s the happy and proud family:

This is the college president (I think) giving congratulations to the graduates too:

Honestly, it’s good we were in the cheap seats because we kept up a running commentary on the coolest shoes as people were going up and getting their diplomas. We would have annoyed a lot of people if we weren’t in the cheap seats. Plus it was fun to text back and forth and enjoy it with our girl this way. We could see her the whole time, which was the important part.

This is what happens when you give the smallest person the camera. You get pictures of her shoe!

Afterward, there were hugs all around:

And then there were margaritas and I’m in complete, total pain today. Serves me right.
