That's right, Pat graduated on Friday! Lot's of people go to school for seven years, right?

We went to the second half of graduation, (the convocation, I guess) where they announce the names of the graduates. Pat got the loudest cheers out of all the graduates - including Big Buddha, made famous by Fox 13 news.

As we were walking to the Hunstman Center, Pat's dad found one of those "Stole's of Gratitude" on the ground. It was a bit windy and someone lost there's. The right thing to do would be to at least try to find the owner but the smarter thing was to put it on and be really grateful that someone lost it. We called it the "Stolen Gratitude." None-the-less, it sure spiffed up the plain black gown (thanks by the way to Katie Olsen who let us borrow hers).

We are all so proud of Pat, I came close to crying when they started played the Pomp and Circumstance graduation song (of course, I also come close to crying everytime I hear the Olympic Theme song or I'm Proud to Be an American) and Pat marched on down and got his diploma. Now - if anyone knows of any good jobs let us know!
