A Graduate of Distinction

This past weekend our youngest son James graduated from the University of Oklahoma, a graduate of distinction in the College of Engineering.

Of course, even if the University hadn't named him as a person of distinction, we would have. He's worked hard and made his parents proud, following in his dad's footsteps with an Electrical Engineering degree. The Friday night ceremony honoring all of OU's graduates took place in Memorial Stadium on a picture-perfect Oklahoma evening. Truly a beautiful night of commemoration.
The Engineering Convocation was held on Saturday. For this occassion we filled two and a half rows of our section with family and friends. Followed by a celebration at one of the great little Campus Corner cafes--La Luna. We had a great group and were especially pleased that both of James's grandparents were able to come--Max's mom and my dad. Plus brothers, cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends.

Proud parents!

It's going to be a huge year for James all around. Graduation, a new job as a software developer for a company in Tulsa (yeah! no more monthly deposits from the old folks at home), and his upcoming wedding to Allison in August. Huge for him. Fun for us. We are blessed.
