A Doubly Wonderful Weekend

Friday at 5, I loaded my guys into my "little" blue Caddy.  Destination: Cass' college, 250 miles away.  She graduated on Saturday at 1!



This is so typical of her attitude; always happy.  Now she has to take the RN licensing exam in a couple of weeks, and she's on her way to a great life!

But we didn't have time to celebrate yet, because we had to get to Kellie's graduation at 6.  And that was 120 miles away.  So off we set!  I actually beat Kellie to the university's Coliseum, where her graduation was held.  So while we were sitting on a bench, waiting for Kellie, lots of people walked past us.  And when she arrived, Kellie told us that one of her friends had told her that her mother was over by the statue of Jerry West.  Maybe we look a little alike.

She already has one job offer and several more potential jobs, so I think she's doing wonderfully!

A humorous side note: When we went to Cass' graduation, we all drove from her apartment in her Explorer.  Do you think Ryan and Mark were comfy?

So, 750 miles of driving and 2 graduations in 30 hours, and I was beat.  I was going to say that I was getting too old for this crap, but then Shannon, who had driven from Philly to each graduation and back home Saturday night, confessed that she slept through most of Sunday.  Maybe I'm not that old, after all!

Beautiful girls and boys well on their way to being men. They're growing up fast!!

I think both girls look a lot like you. Congrats to all of you - some for graduating, some for driving and surviving...

Strong family resemblance. And I don't think that Explorer is going to contain Mark for much longer.

Congrats - two more down. If you were beside a Jerry West statue, I believe I can guess where you were.

That is too much action in 30 hours! Phew! Thank goodness for photos or you might not even remember being there.

P.S. Congratulations to both girls. I envy Cass taking a nursing degree. Honestly the idea of actually being responsible for real live people would scare me to death.
