Graduation and Mom's visit
After the ceremony, we somehow managed to get out of the Central parking lot and home. Guests had already arrived and Becky and Mom, who left early and got there ahead of us, had made coffee and set everything out. Many friends of both boys came, as well as the Seatons from church, the piano teacher (Mrs. Fischer) and even their music teacher Mrs. Kelly. Our friends Jon and Katy Schaff came by. Matt Dawn did an Irish jig for us and debated the merits of Abraham Lincoln with Dr. Schaff.
I am grateful that the bad storms we had on Saturday, didn't happen on Sunday a few hours earlier and a few miles easterly. If Central had been hit by the large tornado during graduation, I tremble at what would have been left of the graduating class of 2010. As it was, no one was hurt in the storms and the graduating class enjoyed themselves greatly.
