We are a family of graduates now (actually Sam isn't and probably needs to lift his game). Recently Jack 'graduated' from preschool twice in one week. He only wore the cap and gown once which is lucky as it proved to be a oh&s issue for some of his fellow (shorter) graduates.
Yesterday S became Dr S when he received his phD. I'm not sure what the ceremony was like (long) because we were at the national dinosaur museum. That sounds uncaring but graduates only get two tickets so Noel & Diane got a guernsey and we turned up in time to celebrate.
Hooray or as Jack says,"congraduation!"
