Yesterday, May 12, I was in Lynchburg, VA, celebrating niece Amanda's graduation day at Liberty University. I am proud of her. She graduated summa cum laude with a major in music--vocal performance and a minor in history. And she was a soloist at Friday evening's baccalaureate service.
The graduation ceremony made headlines with featured speaker Mitt Romney. The handicapped seating area in the stadium turned out to be an echo chamber, so anything I know about what he said will be from conversation and news reports.
Five other family members were engaged in milestone activities yesterday. Our two Georgia granddaughters Charlie and Stella had their annual dance recitals. In Louisiana, it was also dance recital day for granddaughter Molly Kate and for her mom Katie's ballet students. Katie teaches classes for ages 12-14 and choreographed their recital performances this year. Finally, but big on my list, is the fact that our youngest grand, Walker Vincent turned two yesterday. His parents have set his celebration for a later weekend, though, as a matter of survival!
All these young folks and their parents are a source of joy.
That's all for now. I will be in Virginia with my brother and his family through Tuesday morning, and opportunities for posting, for visits to blogging friends, and for commenting will be limited until later next week as I will be taking some time to recharge and reconnect with husband Walter.
Have a great week!
