What A Wonderful Day

Nigel, our second son, graduated today from community college with an associate’s degree. He also graduated from homeschool high school. When he enters university next year, he’ll enter as a freshman with junior standing.

This son has had to work every inch of the way. He’s gotten where he’s gotten by diligence, and we’re so proud of him.

Of course, it’s not a special occasion if the honored one doesn’t choose the dinner! Nigel loves a Rachael Ray recipe, “Big Bistro Burgers with Goat Cheese and Beet Salad”

174 Those are caramelized shallots on top – I believe the term is “yummo”

179 Well, and who wouldn’t choose chocolate raspberry cheesecake if Clara was cooking it?

A wonderful day.
