I feel like bursting out with the song "Wonder of Wonders, Miracle of Miracles" whenever I realize that Mike and I are DONE WITH SCHOOL. It's true. We graduated and we couldn't be happier. The festivities started with my mom and brother flying out from CA for my graduation. They got in a few days early, so we hit up Shipshewana, toured both ND and IUSB, and ate a LOT of food before the ceremony. Photographic evidence of our graduations follows:
My brother, Nathan, had never been to Michigan, so we drove 5 minutes north and took a picture to commemorate this joyous occasion:
You can't really tell, but we're standing on the bridge at IUSB that overlooks the St. Joseph river. Also, Even when Nathan ducks down and I stand on my toes, he is still taller than me.
my fan club in the stands:
Many thanks to my madre and Nath for flying out, and to Liz, Janelle, and Callie for coming/decorating my front door with balloons and streamers. It made me feel loved. :)
A few days passed, and then it was time for Mike's graduation.
We took a picture of Mike with all his school books after his first semester... and after his last semester...
Mamma and Poppa Wilde came out for the festivities.
The next day Notre Dame had their commencement with all graduates from across the whole university. It was bloody hot in that stadium, but we still all had a grand time.
It has been a long road, and we are very proud of each other.
Happy graduations to us!
