Today's the big day! To the tune of Pomp and Circumstance, our son will march onto Nickerson Field with his fellow students for Boston University's All-University Commencement that will last about two hours. After that, we'll rush to the Agganis Arena for the College of Communication convocation. Our fingers are crossed that it's Philippe who walks across the stage when his name is called and not someone else because he forgot his graduation gown in the park on Friday. When Philippe went back to get it, all that was left was an empty bag and receipt. If you see someone roaming the streets of Boston in a red gown, there's a good chance that it belongs to Philippe. Let's just hope that they don't decide to take his diploma, too!
If my eyes aren't too blurry to focus the camera, there will be a photo to go along with the song later today. Pomp and Circumstance makes me cry whenever I hear it, especially when it means that one of our children have reached a new stage in their lives.
Congratulations to all of the college graduates in Boston this weekend. There are lots of them!
