With brilliant blue skies and an inspirational speech by Eric Schmidt, the executive chairman of Google, the 139th commencement ceremony at Boston University was an emotional experience for the 3,300 graduating seniors, their families and friends.
Even though I don't normally post photos of my children, I'm a proud mom who can't help myself this morning.

|Philippe with a happy smile in a sea of red gowns. I teased him that he should have written "I love you, Mom!" on his cap so that he would have been easier to recognize from a distance. Photo credit: Stephane.|

Congratulations to the other graduates at Boston University and universities around the country.
To quote Ariane, my friend and fellow mom whose daughter is graduating from Wellesley College next weekend, "Congratulations to you and me for our babies graduation!!! We are done my friend!!! We did a good job." Yes, we did!
