Pomp And Circumstance

Well, I made it......I made it in time for the graduation ceremony!

I arrived in Minneapolis at 6:00am....with no bag......rented a car and hit the road.

And I didn't stop until I was in Grand Forks.....almost out of gas!

The graduation ceremony was fabulous....

Everything was very professional, and so many graduates!

There's Ben....5th one from the left, in the front (actually back) row....they just all turned around for a moment so we could applaud them.

And here they are .......

I'm so proud of Ben and so glad I made it here in time.

And Emily.....isn't she just the cutest?

Her outfit is very sofisticated, tasteful and beautiful........normal.

And this fashion photo is for my sister.... the good news is that my suitcase did finally show up in Grand Forks. The bad news is that it was not until after the ceremony.  Hilarious!
