Graduation We did it!

On the 15th we finally made it and DJ graduate. We went down the day before and it was nice to see all of our friends at Wymount again. DJ got his Bachelor of Arts in Latin American Studies.

For those of you who are super observant you will note that DJ's robe is not black. Thursday night while Sharon was watching TV she noticed that the people on TV were wearing Blue Robes. She mentioned this to DJ who stupidly blamed it on pregnancy eyes and something along the lines of somebody would have said something if the color changed. Well as you can guess she was right. We ran over to our old neighborhood and were asking anyone that we could find if they robes were black or blue. Everyone seemed to think that they were black. Finally our old neighbor's the Ellars came walking by in blue robes. Then we knew DJ once again had been victim to ignoring Sharon's well placed spiritual observations as paranoia. In an effort to be cheap I had borrowed a robe from my brother in law that was black. After a long hour or two determining that we could not get a robe that late in the evening we tried to sleep. Since my graduation was at 7:30 in the morning I was worried about what I would be able to find.

We ended up going over to the faculty rental and bribing them with a credit card. $40 later (and a much happier wife) I had my blue robe. Later we figured out that we had left our credit card there and had to go back for it. It was action packed few hours and I matched everyone else.

The Wheels on The Bus

Sammy has been learning the words to all of his favorite songs. His nursey singing leader is very good and has inspired his new notes along with the help of his mommy.
