How do families with twins handle college graduation if the kids are at schools on opposite sides of the country and have their college graduations on the same day? Does one parent go to each? And how do you decide? Do you flip a coin? Finally admit that you have a favourite and go to theirs, and send the other parent to the other college?
At least in our family with its multiple sets of parents, no one had to make that decision this weekend.
Except for me and Big Sis#2, who have the good fortune of being related to both graduates.
Lil Sis's graduation ceremony for Rutgers Business School is tomorrow (Friday) morning. Lil Bro#2's graduation from Houghton College is Saturday morning.
Lil Sis also has a second graduation ceremony on Sunday morning, which I had not planned on attending because no. Turns out I couldn't have gone anyway, because President Obama is the speaker for that graduation and now each student may only have 3 family members attend. I'll be staying up at Houghton in the RV because that town has only one motel, and the motel has only 3 rooms.
I bought Lil Bro#2 one of these:
He has agreed to wear it over his graduation robe.
I have packed pretty much every piece of clothing I own because our weather is at that awkward stage where it's freezing in the morning, 80 degrees by the afternoon, and then cold again at night.
I think I may be almost finished writing the YA novel I've been working on for like 5 years. I'll be looking for guinea pigs to read it soon.......
