Sharing this happy occasion with our son was thrill enough. I'm glad we didn't do what one parent letter had suggested, "It's going to be crowded so why not stay home and watch your child graduate online!".
Jeez. I hope everyone ignored this suggestion.
I like crowds. We saw our boy's years of hard work pay off in person.

Ian graduated with magna cum laude honors designated by colorful little ropes he wore proudly around his neck.
Here's to you, son, and your bright days ahead!
That's our Ian, the tiny dot under my finger, sitting with his fellow graduates. We stayed in touch during the 3-hour ceremony using cell phones and frantic paper waving.
