A Graduation Day

The Graduate
 
Graduation for our second son ....and the first son is home from Beijing for the week and the daughter is home from India.....all the children in Illinois at the same time.....that is very unusual!!!

You'd think you would get used to how tall the kids are when you see them with others...not so much! The poor little guy in the back was totally obscured by Eric....These were the recipients of the Bachelor Degree....there were 30 who received their associate degree.

They were given a rose to give to the person they felt helped them the most during their schooling.

I have never seen this boy smile so large....

His diploma.....
The man who spoke at graduation kept it short and sweet....the theme was network network network.....we liked his talk ....if not only for the brevity but because of his theme.
