It's Goof-off Day

Photo time! This spring was college graduation for both Child 2 and Child 3. 2nd to finish his coursework, but 1st to have his ceremony, was Child 3. (No competition here or anything.)
                                Family gathers for the big day!
                                            Always posin'
              Such proud parents -- but what's that fly on his cap, Dad?
                                              The cute engaged couple :)
                                             But lest we be too serious...
                                     Some things never change

1st to finish her coursework, 2nd to have her ceremony, yet 1st to get her diploma because his was mailed and hers was actually in her folder, was Child 2. (You following these numbers? No competition here or anything.)
                                          Family gathers for the big day!
                                             Let's switch photographers!
                                        The cute young marrieds :)
                                        Proud parents and grad
                                                     It's for real!
                        No bunny ears? He must be the good child :D

Those are great photos. As I looked at them, I couldn't help but think about all the work that is behind those diplomas. Not just the hard work your kids put in studying, but the hard work you and your husband put in, getting your kids to this point. Congratulations all around!

Just as I saved that, I saw that Vijaya and I said virtually the same thing. Great minds think alike...

Thank you all. We're really happy they're all graduated -- whew! -- and really proud of them. Our son wasn't even much of a student his first two years of HS, but hard work on the football field gave him the idea that hard work in the classroom might pay off too -- and he got on the honor roll and never looked back. And then, at the university, when football interfered too much with studying and other pursuits related to his degree, he willingly gave it up. And our daughter worked 20 hours a week ALL through school, got married after her freshman year and worked while her husband finished school, then went back and finished her own degree. Yeah, we're proud we raised them, but THEY did the work.
