And the Graduate Overslept!!

The Family -- Mr. Tennis, Maddy, Connor, Me, Catherine & Philip

A little more on graduation . . . that's right, the graduate nearly slept through it! He was supposed to be at the graduation site by 8:30 AM as it was starting at 9:30. I started calling his cell phone around 7:45 - no answer, no answer, no answer. Sent text - no response. I figured he was in the shower - wrong!!!! He called at 8:25 and said he JUST woke up. He and his roommate rushed out of the apartment and got there in the nick of time to line up. The place was packed and we ended up sitting way up high. We did see him entering and Philip went to get some closer photos of Connor receiving his diploma. When he came back, Philip said, "I don't know if he has much on under the robe!!" WHAT???? Ended up that he had a v-neck t-shirt on, shorts and flip-flops! So, his bare chest and bare legs showed from under the robe! Guess it will be a college graduation to remember, right?! We all went to lunch after and I managed to nab a few photos.

Rick and me with the kids!


Just the kids!

Chuckle. It's not the fact that he walked the line that's important... but that he was ALLOWED to walk the line. Even if he barely made it there. ;)

TOO FUNNY...I'm still giggling! :) You're right, a day none of you shall ever forget. He'll be telling this story to his own kids one day!

BEAUTIFUL FAMILY!!

Somehow I think Connor's going to be hearing about this for awhile. I hope he was able to change before you headed to the restaurant :-)

Hehehehe - at least he had something on under that robe! I'm sure you were a nervous wreck waiting to hear back from him. Sounds like all went well though!

Congratulations to Connor! Glad he made it. I'd have been a nervous wreck, wondering if he would make it.
Probably not the first time he'd overslept during his college career. :)

Wow...that is one good looking family! I must confess...I overslept on graduation morning and awoke to my graduation robe that my mother pressed and it turned the satin a lighter shade of purple than my classmates' gowns. Interestingly, though, many thought the color meant I was receiving a special degree so I went with it. Oh, and I had more on than Connor did underneath it all! Whew!
