Clemson- Class of 2012

Just got home from Clemson and Lorelai's graduation. Our friends Ann and Tom made the trip up, as did neighbor Deborah and her daughter Gracie. Legare rolled in from Charlotte to complete our merry little band. The ceremony was in Littlejohn Coliseum in Clemson and it was pretty much packed. Lor's group graduated in the second of the three ceremonies for the day.We headed back to Greenville after for a celebration dinner at High Cotton then back to the hotel where we collapsed after nightcaps and the opening of gifts. This morning, Ann and Tom headed out early while Hank waited patiently as Lor and I slept late.  Then a spot of shopping and the trip home.

I'm a little disappointed in my pictures...ever since my camera got wet in the boat it just hasn't been the same. Anybody know somebody at Nikon? are a few snapshots.

I drew an orange mark on her stole so you can tell which is Lor.

One must go into the stadium after the ceremony...

Rubbing Howard's Rock...a long tradition. Every home game each coach and player rubs the rock before running down the hill.

Legare got into the act even though he is not a Clemson alum. 
Not sure what they rub at Furman or Chapel Hill.

With friends Ann and Tom...Lor surely does love them.

Proud daddy and brother...
Proud mama is always taking the pictures.


  1. Congratulations momma!
    The pictures are grest! What's next for Lor?

    1. Next comes possible foot surgery (we'll know on Wednesday) or a summer job before she returns to Clemson in August for graduate school in School Counseling. We'll be back at the grad school commencement in 2014.

  2. Congratulations, I know the 4 years just flew by for you. Good luck with the foot surgery.

  3. Congratulations! That was the quickest four years in history! All the best!
