Little Doofus graduated from college!!! I can't believe it. He's all growed up and graduating and working.. But he'll always be the Doofus I know and love. I was so happy to be home too, seeing the fam, the dogs, and of course, my date to the grad, my Tweedle Kat. LOVE seeing this girl, and I loved that my shoes enabled me to be at eye level with her. It was so good to catch up with her while the boring speakers were up at the podium. The only interesting speaker was Tommy Lasorda - his speech was truly inspirational (video below), and he was the only one to wake up our whole sleeping row.
And what started as a gloomy Saturday, turned into a fairly warm afternoon. The sun managed to be present when Richie finally walked to his seat. I had to resist the tears welling up as I saw him walk in his cap and gown... flashback of the times I'd play mean tricks on him when we were kids... his teenage years.. and here he is. All grown up. ::sniff::
Congratulations Doofus!! So proud of you!!
