Proud. Sad. Tired. Sunburned ... but mostly, Proud. I am trying to put into words what yesterday was like for me, and for Ralph.
We watched Kid One, Allegra, graduate from the University of Hartford. I'll write more than one post, because we have lots of pictures that I am sorting through ~ and I'm also trying to recuperate today. Please stay tuned!
We didn't know Allegra would be a cum laude graduate, but we sure are happy it says that on her diploma.
Daddy and daughter before the main ceremony ~ before we all got tired, and hungry, and sunburned! It was perfectly glorious weather. We couldn't have asked for better.
And here are the three of us. One of the security folks offered to take a photo.
Cameron, Kid Two, was asked to work at the commencement. He ended up on stage, in the background, working on the logistics of having the ceremony stream live on the Internet. Allegra has a photo of him working onstage, but it's on her camera, and she's asleep so it will have to wait.
Ralph took this as I was off looking for my mother and our close friend so that we could sit together...I found them and brought them over to our seats.
We all got equal amounts of sunburn on our faces, because we were in the direct sun for about two hours. It suddenly felt like summer here in Connecticut.
Well that's it for now...need to take a break from the computer!
