Graduation



Our first has graduated! Wow!
It was a wonderful weekend - we were very proud and it was a lovely and emotional ceremony.
I am glad Brian is trying his independence by staying out in Cincinnati. As a parent I can't help but have a little bit of concern since he does not have a job yet, but it's all on him now. In one sense, we've crossed a parenting threshold and there is no turning back. It is a different feeling now having him gone after graduating rather than when he was gone while he was a student. I guess it should not feel different but it does - it is a feeling of finality.
Wednesday I'll be going to Massachusetts to get my daughter after her last exam so she will be home till September. Life marches on!
