What had been a rather chilly/partlysunny day with a stiff wind turned into a beautiful evening and a large number of graduates and their families celebrated under the tent in our yard. Today is a full day of graduation events beginning with a service at ten in which theological degrees will be handed out, then a luncheon for those people being honored in some way tonight, a quick trip to Kruta Bakery in Collinsville to pick up the cookies for after graduation, then the actual graduation. Full day for sure. But the weather is expected to be absolutely gorgeous and everyone is just plain happy around here.
We even had a fire going in the fire pit outside the far end of the tent where many sat and talked all evening.
