Graduation weekend, part II: The fun continues! Twenty-four hours after my dad’s graduation, my brother walked across the same stage to accept his music degree. Congratulations, Josh!

The graduates and their rings — Dad’s been talking about taking this picture for quite a while. (:

It’s a quilt made up of Bluecoats T-shirts (including several stolen from Josh’s closet when he wasn’t home). Thanks to the folks at the Quilt Loft, who did a wonderful job creating exactly what I had envisioned — it’s beautiful, and the perfect gift to celebrate such a special day. Love you, brother!

I was lucky enough to see two loved ones get their diplomas this weekend, starting Thursday at my dad’s graduation. He has been working so hard (on top of a full-time job) toward his degree in applied arts and sciences, and he is now a proud Texas State alumnus. Congratulations, Dad!

He’s a fan of the flip cam I got him. (:

Woohoo! Love you, Dad!
