"A Student in its Prime"
Another trip to Virginia, another graduate to celebrate. We decided to split our traveling into two days, and were thrilled to meet the newest sweetest member of our family, little Alexander Houston. Zander is adorable, and Connor is excited to have a cousin to play with! I see great adventures for the boys in the future. We had a lovely visit with Megan, though it was too short, and Burke may have escaped, but it made us all wish we lived a little closer and could have more family time. Megan is a wonderful mom, and Aunt Merilee is a perfect grandma.
Casey made the executive decision to not participate in Commencement. He had a sort of "been there, done that" perspective, and since it was no loss to him, we all enjoyed an extra few hours of sleep. We meandered onto campus after the processional and had the place to ourselves. It was surreal. We wandered around, took pictures in appropriate places without a million people photobombing, and even got to watch some of the speaker's address from a private viewing room. I say we scored! Not to mention brunching at Cracker Barrel and playing Heads Up while we waited. We had fun!
