Graduationpolooza Part One

Four years ago we dropped our oldest off at Binghamton University.
Here are the two freshman brothers, one in college and the other in high school.Fast forward four years (and I mean really fast). Today both are seniors awaiting graduation.
After the Decker School of Nursing recognition ceremony. He is certainly the minority.
I tried to bring my husband into the twenty first century but he still wouldn't buy a new tie. His is from the 1980's.
Hurry! The shuttle bus is here! You don't want to be late for your own graduation!
Just before the commencement.
During the commencement. Kevin invited his brother to stay over at his apartment the night before. I don't think much sleeping took place.

Can you hear me now? I've just graduated. Ah, modern technology. Kevin called us before the candidates marched in to find out where we were sitting. We called him after he sat down and had him wave so we could pick him out in a sea of green caps and gowns.

Cameron keeping his aunt warm. The weather wasn't the greatest. Cool, damp and overcast.
The roommates.
Kenny graduated from the School of Mangement, Joe will graduate in January. Tim graduated from the Watson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and Kevin, The Decker School of Nursing.
It's official. He is no longer a resident of Binghamton University.
All his junk is at home in our family room!

Handsome boys! It's thrilling to see sons become men . . . but it tugs pretty hard at your heartstrings, too.
