Graduation Celebration

Hello, and happy Wednesday! Can you say excited? That's exactly what we are! Our youngest son just finished his B.S. Degree in history, and we are celebrating this weekend. Woohoo!! Actually it's going to be a double celebration, because his cousin/roommate Eric graduated from art school, as well. We're having a dinner and rock band party for about 50-75 of our closest family and friends. Allen and I have had kids in college for the past 6 years, so we are pretty excited about having that behind us. Onward and upward, right? Trevor hopes at some point to teach history, and he would actually like to teach at a college level, so that means graduate school at some point, but for now, he's glad to be out of school, and he's just playing it by ear for a bit. He has studied and worked hard, and we are very proud of him. This is the card I sent out for invitations, and as always after reading, and re-reading it, having mom proof it, and Trevor, there were still some typos!! Arrrrg!!! Does that happen to anyone else, or is it just me?!! Oh well. What's done is done!!
Supply List
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Brilliant Blue, Summer Sun

LOL - remember the gift bags for the baby show? I forgot a WHOLE WORD!

I'm sure no one will notice at all since the invite itself is so incredible. what a wonderful keepsake and you are a wonderful mom/aunt. Imagine 50-75 people and your so CALM about it all!

Gratz to your son for making it through school. And gratz to you for being done with college kids. Tell Trevor that if he wants to practice teaching, I can try it out on my oldest son (15). He absolutely loves history and is fascinated by all ancient history and WWII. Heck, after watching Night at the Museum 2 the other night, I got a whole lecture on how it was appropriate that the Lincoln Memorial's personality was matching that of Lincoln the Legend as opposed to Lincoln the actual man, since the Memorial was a tribute to the legend. These are the kind of discussions I get hit with where I just smile and nod.

Rambling again, awesome card!

Wow! That is definitely something to celebrate (no more tuition!). Congrats to both your DS and nephew! Great graduation card! Hits just the right note - simple and elegant (and not too girly!).
