{PHFR}: Pomp and Circumstance

The weather, the atmosphere, the Chapel, the Day!

Thoughtful Child graduates with all his wonderful classmates amidst the cheers of an exuberant crowd of well wishers.  Joy was infused in all!

Post graduation antics at the beach.  The weather was so cold but we couldn't miss smelling the sea and putting our feet in.  Youngest Child went in all the way to the waist!  Thoughtful Child  collapses in a post exams and post graduation heap of relief.  Sleep will be welcome!

One of the things I will tuck away in my mother's memory.  A lovely, gentle soul from a nursing home in the town near Thoughtful Child's college.  Apparently, he visited her often with some of his classmates and she came all the way up to the college to see him graduate.  When I asked if I could take her picture, she said, "Only if we can hug while you take it".  So, she hugged my son and I almost cried.  He is full of surprises this lovely son of mine.
