A Little Milestone Today
As I filled out the form that will empty the college fund so that Emilia can complete her masters in social work degree -- with a certificate in non-profit management, if you please.
I've been filling out these forms for years. New York Univesity -- check. University of North Carolina --check. Many, many checks. Thank you, Red Tent.
No champagne at such a moment. Not even a bowl of ice cream. But it's sweet enough looking at the photos on Facebook.
The graduation ceremony at Chapel Hill was the usual combination of boredom and joy; the kind of thing no parent should miss. The all-grown-up Masters and the even-more-all-grown-up Doctors of Social Work searched the audience for familiar faces.
"Look what I did," they beam. "Aren't you proud?"
Yes. Yes we are.
