How Big Is Laura?

So big...and graduated! The time that my family spent together in Athens was great. It was so nice for us to be together again to celebrate Laura's accomplishments during her years at UGA (Like graduating Magna Cum Laude...I'm bragging again). Her English Department graduation was on Thursday afternoon in the Chapel on campus. It was an intimate ceremony and she was recognized for her study abroad work at Oxford. We walked around campus for a bit after and then ate a delicious dinner at NONA (New Orleans in Athens), one of Laura's favorite spots downtown.

That's you Laura!

You did it!

Well deserved!


Friday we went to a late breakfast downtown, walked around a bit and then readied ourselves for more graduation celebrations at Laura's friend Taylor's house and then off we went to the stadium (With about 45,000 other people). The graduates filed onto the field from two different gates and I just picked one to stand by hoping I would be able to catch a glimpse of Laura and she walked between the hedges and sure enough we spotted each other! Governor Nathan Deal of Georgia was the keynote speaker and an awesome fireworks display marked the University of Georgia Class of 2012's entrance into the world! Congratulations Laura, we are all so proud of you and know that nothing but exciting & grand things await you in the future!
