The procession started off with Bag Pipers (always make me misty eyed- I love bag pipes, but don't quite understand why). Pomp and Circumstance followed soon after as the 250 graduates arrived full of hope for the future. The ceremony was full of excitement,the keynote speaker -Swannee Hunt- enjoyable and the star of the day is ready to head off to save the world (or maybe just a horse or two!).
She had set high standards for herself, and got her greatest reward- Summa Cum Laude! She did us all proud. Even the rain couldn't put a damper on the day's festivities. The pretty new dress and open toed shoes were left behind, and the full-footed wedges and the long pants were worn for a second day. It was , as Martha would say, a very "good thing" ....here's just a peek at what the day was like:
Rain soaked and chilly feet!
Needless to say, with all the activities of the week before graduation no sewing got done. Now that we are back home, today is laundry and a quick clean up. I do think I may try to go say hello to my sewing room later this afternoon. There is an odd ball in the sky trying very hard to send light and warmth. It is done somewhat intermittently and it feels like a long time since we've last seen that thing called sunshine. I'll have to check and see it it really, truly exists! The forecast for my return to work promises 85* by Thursday. Doesn't it just figure?? Oh well....no matter! We've managed to get the last kiddie thru college. Watch out world here she comes!!
