I is for....

Institutes of higher education.

Northern Arizona University is one of the most beautiful campuses that I have seen. Okay, I'm partial to mountain views and pine trees. But my institute of higher education was in the middle of an urban concrete jungle. Going to a college with a beautiful campus like NAU would have been an unbelievable experience.

Maria has been attending NAU for the last four years. She finally graduated on May 9.

We went out to a lovely old Flagstaff restaurant (Charley's) to celebrate her graduation, Michael's girlfriend Carolyn's graduation from University of Arizona, Carolyn's birthday (May 6), and Barbara's eighteenth birthday (May 9, the same day as Maria's graduation). Carolyn will be going on to medical school and Barbara will be heading to the local community college for her first two years of higher education, after she graduates high school on Thursday.

We are very proud parents.

And extremely worn out after a long ceremony and the packing out of the dorm room. Some experiences are the same no matter what institute of higher education one attends.
