The last few days have been quite the whirlwind, but in a good way! We got to see our youngest graduate from college after six years that flew by so fast our heads are still spinning!
Last week we loaded our motor home and headed down to graduation with my MIL. Another son lives near so we stayed in the city they live in and all got to visit with one another.
Friday was an early day since graduation was at 9 a.m. and we had a 45 minute drive. DH and I got there first and got seats, which was a good thing because the stadium filled up fast.
Here's DH, MIL, the boys' mom, Tommy and Claudia.
The procession started.

Matt was front and center, the second graduate again on the right.
A funny story....you know we always have a funny story. When the 4,320 speeches were all done and the dean was about to confer the degrees, he asked all the doctors to stand. Nobody stood for a moment so the dean said .......That's all of you, stand please! I asked Matt later why he didn't stand right up and he said he wasn't sure if they meant him! That's right son, you're now a Pharm.D.
Matt walking across the stage......I don't have a fancy camera, but my little point and shoot did an o.k. job.

All in all it was a great time of celebration. AND he has a job!
Graduation was on Friday and we stayed over until Monday.
Now the next part of life starts! God is good!
