My son's graduation from college!

Today is my husband, Rick's 50th birthday. He couldn't have received a better birthday present!

Ricky did it! He has graduated from the University of Toledo! It was the usual ceremony but this was a bit more special as he not only graduated, he played at his own graduation. Here's a few pictures.....

Sitting with the band...a wind ensemble...



Standing with education graduates...

Afterwards....one of the happiest times I've seen for my son. He got paid to play at his own graduation. He's waving the envelope with his check around.



with his "diploma" (it's actually empty--diploma's mailed later)

My son, Ricky, with the tower in the background...a symbol of the U of Toledo.
