Alex, one of our college students made the trip with us.
We got to meet several of her teachers.
The Patty family came up for the ceremony too - and drove the 4 hours back that same night! Wow!
With two small kids in tow, we knew we couldn't do a turn-around trip like that so we stayed in a guest room in the dorm.
(Ahh dorm life how I've missed you - ok well, I miss having my own apartment with my own bathroom in the dorm like I had when I was an RD. Hehe.)
We loved getting to hang out with her and her friends after the ceremony, hanging out in the cafe, playing games. (I really really love the good baby monitors we have so that I could put the kids down in our room and go enjoy time with Mana's friends upstairs in the cafe.)
Isn't Mana beautiful? She simply glowed the whole time we were there!
