Well, Nick graduated from college this weekend!!!!! Yay! We are very excited for this long awaited day. I might add that while we were taking pictures, we saw a baby turtle... and then a dead baby duck. This made us feel a little weird, we were so excited to see the turtle. But then, less enthusiastic, and rightly so, to see the annihilated duckling. Tara saw an alligator snapping turtle on the highway on Friday, which brings our summer turtle sightings up to: 2. I'll keep you posted.
On the flip side... why are graduations so boring? (This is me during the sacred ceremony...but that old lady with the immense turquoise necklace looks a little bored too) There are all these people you don't know, and lots of boring speeches. J. Dudley Eschbach (Could have spelled that wrong, but too lazy to check) congratulated every professor in the known world for their acheivements. And don't get me wrong. I'm proud of them. Wait, no I'm not.
Also, in celebration of said graduation, Nick bought a ukulele (Ooo- ku- lay- lay) if you are a pacific islander. He is learning to play many songs on it... including "Stairway to Heaven". I am impressed by his beginning ukulele skills. In fact, I might buy a hula skirt and we shall go into the luau business.
And so we sign off for now,
