Such a beautiful, glorious day! It was graduation day for the Dog Walker and Princess. Dog Walker had to be at the Maverick Center at 2:00 to practice and Princess didn't have to be there until 3:30. My sweetie, Grandpa, Drama Queen, Princess's boyfriend, and I found seats in the 2nd row.
They announced 3700 graduates, but it looked like only about 700 of them showed up to walk. Princess graduated in General Studies and it was by far the biggest group. The Dog Walker was one of the elite Graduates of Excellence, so he got to carry the banner for the College of Humanities and Social Studies.
The ceremony itself took about an hour and then it took another hour for all the graduates to cross the stage.
I'm trying to get a real copy of the Dog Walker's video so I can share it with you. In his video he held up his merit badge sash and the whole audience broke into spontaneous applause. His video was the first one that really received thunderous clapping.
I was just so proud of both of them! They have worked so hard and they were so happy. It's days like this that make all the hard parenting days worth it.
