Today was a very special day. Liz graduated from the school of engineering cum laude, chemical engineering. I felt honored and proud as I watched her walk across that stage. It was a lovely ceremony where each department recognized their own students. After the ceremony, we went over to the duck pond at UNM for pictures. The last photo was taken at dinner. I think that one could be a great oil painting.
Liz Congratulations. Thank you for being such a great kid. I am proud of you. It is exciting to see you blossom into a strong, intelligent, beautiful young woman with lots of possibilities to explore. I know you will succeed at whatever you want. And I am excited that you will be sharing a summer with us before heading off to start a Ph.D. program in chemical engineering at Ohio State next fall. Love you. Mom
