The Graduate

We had a sweet, heartfelt gathering of family last night at my parents' house to honor Jacob, our wonderful high school graduate. It was just sandwiches, ice cream, and presents, but turned out really fun. Jacob is off to college in the fall--UC Santa Cruz, which we are all so excited about. Several of the adults at the gathering felt that being a freshman at UCSC is a very enviable position to be in! I agree. I loved my college years and I hope he does too.
He wrote and designed a children's book for his computer graphics class. Here's the link. (Scroll down to "turn" the pages. My favorite part is the "about the author" section at the end). It's very cute and creative, just like my boy. Happy graduation, Jacob! I am so proud of you.
