Today we had a little lunch get together with our graduating seniors and the faculty who could make it. Nothing fancy - burgers, dogs, salads - and a lot of sunshine. Gorgeous day - low 80s and sunny!! We found out that the terraced patio behind our house works better for evening gatherings in warm weather. the only shade we had was from the patio umbrella and the house, and so we all crunched together to stay cool.
It was nice to see the students all together - we so often see them only one or two at a time, either in classes or the hallway. I do not often get sentimental about graduates - well not too often - but this was a very special group of seniors. I really wish them well.
