A few pictures from the party we had yesterday to celebrate my daughter's graduation from college. I am extremely proud of the way she handled the entire four years - head down, nose to the grindstone, diligent and responsible. It is really bittersweet, this milestone. It's not the degree, per se. But I know she's reached a point where she can handle life's challenges and obstacles with confidence and grace. This is where parents want their children to get to. The point where we can relax a little, our job mostly done, our independence returned as theirs is gained.
