My baby is a baby no longer.
I am still trying to come to grips with the fact that my husband and I are at the end of an era, and that our sons are all adults now; and I'm just not ready to write about it yet. But I'd love to share some pictures of our newly-minted college graduate's big day with you.
The commencement ceremony was held in the football stadium at Our Lady's University. My husband and I snagged a seat at about the 50-yard line, all the way up in the nosebleed section. (In fact, we were as high up as you could go--which we thought was perfect, because it afforded us both shade and backrests!)
As far away as we were from our son, I was able to zoom my Nikon camera right in on him. I got some great pictures of him processing into the stadium and sitting in his seat in the far left section, with fellow graduates of the #1-ranked Mendoza School of Business.
|"Hi, Mom and Dad!"|
|"Hey, [junior year roommate], I found my parents!"|
|"No, not there. Way up there, see?"|
|"Okay, Mom. I've been a good sport. But enough pictures."|
|Looking over his shoulder at me: "Yep, I see you, Mom. Still up there snapping away."|
More to come soon, I promise. But until then, enjoy this iconic shot we got after the graduation was over...
