Nearly two weeks ago, our son graduated from Oklahoma State University. Yay!!!
That’s him with our grandkiddo, Cam, learning to wear the cap for his upcoming experience. I went to OSU myself, as did both my sisters, BILs, nieces, and most friends. (Yes, Bob went to OU. We are a mixed marriage.) I’m an orange person anyway, so I loved the orange tie (Go, Pokes!) and also the red/white/blue cords that show Brandon is a veteran. (Army proud, Army strong!)
Then last night Cam had his own graduation.
The kids sang a couple songs, received their diplomas, and, with the teacher’s encouragement, a few of them tried tossing their caps.
At least Cam caught his. The other boy’s landed up on a shelf with the sock puppets.
The kids were really more interested in the snacks they got after the ceremony than showing off their diplomas. Diplomas are cool, don’t get me wrong, but come on: it was cupcakes!
When it was over, Granddaddy got a picture of Cam and me for posterity.
Then he got one that captures us as we really are.
