Celebrations: A wedding and a graduation

We’ve been galavanting to these momentous occasions and not posting on the blog.  And in between the wedding and the graduation, we’ve been helping our kids out with house maintenance and outside chores.  It feels good to be home now so we can rest.

We’re very proud of our daughter Ellen and her graduation with honors from Johns Hopkins School of Nursing.  I tried the video feature on my newish little point-and-shoot digital so I could share the moment here but you can see that I did a pretty bad job of videography and I didn’t start soon enough to get the announcement of her name.  But here she is getting her BSN and walking to her seat.

(I’m sorry that the photo is a little blurry.)

It was a glorious day in Baltimore for the ceremony at the Lyric Opera House and dinner afterward at Phillips in the Inner Harbor.  We ate outside and enjoyed the rest of a beautiful day.
