Happy Graduation Mike!!

Friday dawned cool and damp..we had to leave very early in the morning
to go to my little brother's graduation from college.
We were lucky to make it on time and Princess had a blast sitting with her Grandparents and her Uncle Jeremy.
First we had the whole school ceremony on the football field (luckily it did not rain) then just the Physics Department. In between we waited in line to use the ladies room before realizing we would not make it and having Princess use the men's room (which was empty).
She loved that! We proudly watched Mike graduate Summa Cum Laude and get the "Fink-Moses-Pregger Phyisics Award" (see photo)for the highest grade in the program(3.98).He already made us swell with pride when he got elected into
the Phi Beta Kappa Society .
After the ceremony and photographs we had a lovely luncheon provided by the Physics department
and Princess had a blast hanging out with her Uncle Mike and his fiance Aunt Adi and all Mike's friends in the program. (P and Adi left)
She was the only child there, and made us quite proud with her behavior.
After driving home she decided to stay with her Aunt Shell, so I had a couple of hours to visit the library
and even catch up with one of my dear friends.

Your family must be so proud. What a great memory and inspiration for Princess. Aren't you lucky to have someone that will be able to assist you in homeschooling upper level science. ;)

That is so wonderful! And terrific that you were all able to share the day together. Now we know who we can find to help when we are struggling to teach physics! ;)

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
