My Graduate…

I know I’ve been a very bad blog poster for the month of June, but with very good reason…my son Kurtis graduated from high school! It’s been a whirlwind of activity around here. We had the graduation ceremonies for both him and his cousin Skyler who also graduated this year.
Then there was graduation parties, and a visit to his college campus. I am not sure if I mentioned it on the blog yet, but Kurtis is going to Penn State. We are so proud of him, and while it feels really far to me (3 hours away) I know it could be a lot further.
We had his new student orientation and got to check out State College PA, we had never been there before. I’m sure Thomas and I will be making many trips that way in the next year (first year students cannot have cars) so I’d love to hear of anything anyone recommends in the area.

    I hope you got a chance to go to the Creamery ( on campus. They make their own ice cream and it’s darn good (you can buy quarts to take home and they’ll pack it on dry ice for you). I wish I hadn’t become lactose intolerant.
