Well, he done did it.
Nathan graduated from Southeastern University last night, magna cum laude. (And if you’ll allow this mama to brag a bit, he was only about two-tenths of a point away from graduating suma cum laude.)
Of course, I took boatloads of pictures but since I’ve haven’t loaded them to my computer yet, I’ll post a few from his graduation party Thursday night.
It was held at the house of his (soon-to-be) sister-in-law and her husband, whom he will be living with this summer. Nathan is especially happy that his summer residence has a swimming pool.
Since Snowy wasn’t around to interact with the College Dude, John and Joy’s dogs tried their best to fill the canine void.
Sarah also enjoyed the pool a little later in the evening.
The tennis table battle took place as scheduled and I really whipped him.
Or. Maybe not. Quite.
But it was a fun (and a very close) contest.
John cooked burgers and we gathered in the kitchen to pray for the food—and the guest of honor.
John and Joy have the most darling little boy, Spencer. Nathan will get plenty of “hands on” training this summer.
Here is Nathan (just out of the pool) with Michael, his best friend and roommate from college. Michael will be the best man in Nathan’s wedding.
There was a lovely cake.
Meagan, knowing her fella well, also bought a little cheese cake as well, since she knows how much he loves it.
It was quite obvious how much Nathan appreciated her cheese cake effort.
Really . . .
… really obvious.
Nathan, we are so proud of you!
