    I will go to the hooding ceremony. Sadly my only family member will be DH. Mom died about 7 weeks ago, my father is too demented, my daughter needs to work, and my son live in Australia.

    Congratulations to all! I attended a party last week for my friend’s graduation - she had originally quit school when she married (people did that, even in the ‘70s). Her first grandchild is due in September, so she wanted to be finished by then.
