(Must sing) Duuun dun dun duuun, duuuuuuuun duuuuuuun. Since our new job started right after Dave defended last year, he never did the whole Graduation thing. So, our first stop on our trip was to celebrate his 3 degrees, and 13 years of college. (Yep, ya heard that right.) Ya know how M*A*S*H* was on T.V. forever? Dave attended college two years longer.) I was so proud of him.
Even though none of our family from Wyoming were able to attend, we had our adoptive family from Denver. They skipped work, and school, and when the Dean read Dave's name, the back row exploded with a small primary of kids yelling for Dave. The Dean whispered to Dave when handing him his diploma, "It seems like you have quite the following." Yes, we did. Thanks to everyone who helped Dave along the way!!
