A rare Saturday post. linking up with Melinda @ West Metro Mommy Reads Blog. Please check her out; she has a nice selection of titles :)
Allow me to gush, please. Those who've followed my blog knew my son was in University of San Diego-- Law School. Today is an important day-- no, not Pippa Middleton's wedding-- my son's graduation with his J.D.- Juris Doctorate! Notice the white cord around his neck. That signifies Exemplary Pro Bono work, signifying work over 100 hours (he had over 200). By the way, the lei we gave him is made up of real bluish-purple flowers and were being sold on campus next to the bouquets of flowers, for the gents. After the reception we attended the dining room for refreshments: coffee, juice, bagels, muffins, fresh fruit... because the ceremony started @ 9 a.m. and we live an hour from campus. He had to rise at 6 a.m. to get there early for the Pro Bono photo shoot and to line up-- yikes!!! We are all extremely happy but tired, so instead of doing lunch we are going to a nice restaurant this evening to celebrate. Congratulations to my son, who persevered through many challenges during his academic years to achieve his goal. He's on to the greater D.C. area this summer to pursue his career there.
