Tired, but happy, and never to be an undergrad, ever, ever again.

There are so many things (and pictures) that I have to post, but I am a little tipsy and a lot tired and it has been a long, hot, happy day, so here are the highlights:
  • My mother referred to me as her "little graduate," to a total stranger.

  • Lunch after graduation with my parents, my children, my best friends, and my favorite professors.

  • Being announced as "Neil" when I walked on stage. (I corrected the announcer, but too late.)

  • Matilda brought me flowers (really from Tim and Andrea, but have I mentioned how in love with floral bouquets my daughter is?)

  • Freya playing with Tim and referring to him as "my daddy" over and over again.

  • Planting my new Lilac tree in the front yard (a graduation present from my parents.)

* Details to follow. *

Congratulations Neil ;) And I'm jealous you can grow lilacs where you live. They are gorgeous -- what a great present!

CONGRATULATIONS!
I can't believe you are graduating already. I love you and everything. Wish I could have been there.
