Commencement 2008

It never fails to impress me that time flies! I haven't posted in a month. I can tell you it's been a tad busy what with work and this and that. DD trod the boards as they say................although she received her doctoral degree in chemistry last August, we all had to wait until last weekend to see her clad in her doctoral robes and celebrate this very special occasion. Here's the moment:

Here's DD and her grandmother. We are all so very proud of her.

What a momentous occasion - I hope you captured the three generations of your women that day. Your mother is so proud, and she will tell you that you *never* stop being a mom. Your babies never stop being your babies!!

Hey Cindy, there's a Meme going around these days and I've been tagged, so in turn have tagged you. Go to my blog for instructions. We've exchanged emails from time to time and I look forward to learning more about you~
