Just returning from a crazy, fun week.
My son's college graduation - we finally made it! As an Asperger young man, it has been so much angst, tears, frustration, hard work, tough homework, oral projects that were terrifying for him, the driving him back and forth, the retaking of classes . . . but he now has a B.S. in Biology and a minor in English. And even though it was really, really, really hard, he walked the line in his cap and gown at the UNM Biology Dept Ceremony.
He's the tall one with the new goatee. :-)
I was having a weird hair day . . . but they gave the Mom's flowers!
He actually relaxed and took some candid pictures!
The Cake at Home!
"The Thinker" Pose.
Mom/Grandma was here and we went to the Aquarium and the botanical gardens and had an absolutely lovely day.
Then I headed off to California for my last school Author Visit of the year! Had a frantic, crammed, but wonderful day. I needed to be around those 3-6th graders. They are a breath of fresh air and delight and cuteness!
I'm a bit fuzzy, but you get the picture . . .
Busy, busy writing!
Reading our stories aloud.
One of the questions: "I like your yellow skirt."
Another question: "I like your hair."
Best part of the day:
A girl who called herself my biggest fan ran up and hugged me and then turned to her friend: "I'll never wash my jacket again."
Aaaahhhh. Love it.
