My Graduate!

On Friday at 7AM,. I left home to go to my daughter's law school graduation in Laramie, Wyoming. I had my other 2 girls, Dan and the little boys in tow. Today, I have to show you pictures of my beautiful graduate; I'll show you other interesting stuff later in the week.

Shannon being "hooded"!

And sitting on the lap of Socrates. He's new to the school.

With the beaming family. Nothing like handing your camera to a random stranger and begging him to take a shot or 2, is there?

Of course, you've all been most concerned about Thor. His Great Red Protector stayed home with Thor, and the two of them sulked. I don't believe Thor ate 2 cups of dog food in the 48 hours we were gone. And here's how he behaved toward his boys when they were sitting in the family room on Sunday evening. Poor baby!

That little boy isn't going anywhere, if Thor has anything to say about it!

Congrats to your daughter - she is lovely and you must be so proud.

I'm guessing Mark (or is it Ryan?) should be lucky Thor is only holding him down with a paw and not sitting on him. g

Congratulations, dear Shannon. Your hard work had paid off.

Thor - Zebby says use some claw to keep your people down next to you. Mickle says it works!
