We are home! We flew out late Thursday afternoon basically without incident and arrived in Baton Rouge about 8:00pm. We were only bumped from one flight so we made it pretty easily with all of the folks flying out for the Graduation. Who knew LSU had so many ceremonies? There were 6 going on at the same time as Jennifer's ceremony and I don't know how many there were during Jessica's. It was so nice to have the whole family together for the ceremonies. We had the 2 ceremonies on Friday, one at noon and one at 7:30. Then, Saturday my sister hosted a lovely reception in their honor at her home. We had a really nice time. Lots of food, lots of friends, and lots of laughs. Sunday morning we attended Church with them and the graduates were honored there as well. Mix in eating at some FABULOUS restaurants and you have a weekend that was simply wonderful! We got up at 3:00 this morning to get to the airport by 5:00 to catch our flight home and we really lucked out. We got on both flights without incident and were home by 11:00am.

I am exhausted but so glad we were able to go!

Way to go girls! I am soooooo proud of you!
