I am so proud of my son, Brennan! He graduated Summa Cum Laude from UMass Amherst on Saturday, with a degree in electrical engineering. He'll be off to Stanford in the fall for grad school. How can my baby boy have grown into this accomplished man so quickly?
These photos were from the Honors College ceremony on Friday. The gold rope on his shoulder signifies that he graduated with honors.

Emma hadn't seen Keaton for nearly three months, so she couldn't wait to play with him at the graduation!
So sweet~Emma wanted to hold Uncle Keaton's hand.

Brennan and Professor Chris Hollot, Department Head for Electrical and Chemical Engineering. He made a point of meeting us~he wanted to tell us what a great man Brennan is, not just academically. Yes, this old, proud mama was moved to tears!
We celebrated at our favorite restaurant, Chloe's in Hudson, MA. Left to right: Rick, me, Anne (Rick's mom), Mike (Rick's brother), Barbara (Rick's sister), Susan (Mike's girlfriend), Allen (Barbara's husband), Jim (Anne's husband), Brittany, Brennan, and Keaton.
Two kids graduated from college, one to go!
Have great week!
