Evergreen Graduation

Yesterday was a great day, we saw my nephew, Venu graduate from Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA. He is the first graduate on my side of things in a while. (that's right, I never graduated college, still have bad dreams about it, like I missed something)
Evergreen is an wonderful alternative, interdisciplinary school, and the opening ceremony began with an African percussion band which created a very festive, upbeat atmosphere. The commencement speech was given by a poet, lecturer guy
David Whyte
he was so inspirational and moving, check out his website here, I am going to get his books.
Venu, is he the cutest or what?
I made signs with pictures of Venu as a kid and we all held them up and screamed and yelled when his name was called to receive his diploma. It was great.
Venu and Mirium, his mom
Venu's brother Kevin, Venu and Jesse, my kid (soon to be Evergreen student as well, hooray!
I have no idea who this girl was, but I loved the outfit, good style.
Celebrating with burgers and shakes
Congratulations Venu, I am so proud of you, not just for graduating but for the wonderful human that you are. I love you!
