I’m not planning to tour you around the entire campus, nor subject you to piles of graduation photos, but I am going to share some things that I found to be favorites of the week.
The mosaics on the buildings on the Stanford campus. They were very detailed and beautiful.
I did see some redwoods, though not the forest, due to special events creating all sorts of issues in the park that weekend. I think it was just as well, because these small ones, were kind of scary; I can’t imagine looking up at a 2000 year old tree. And, we did cross the Golden Gate bridge which is more red than gold.
Seeing Girl #2’s home away from home. She lived in Roble Hall for 3 years, which was built in 1898! The rooms had been updated, but still had a vintage feel. Old doors and hardware in the sleeping room, which just held two single beds with room to change! The living area had a bay window with a window seat and their desks, along with newer armoires.
Having my whole family together!And yes, that is the dress, which was still holding up well after 6 hours in 102 degree heat!
And, of course, seeing my Girl #2 graduate!! (not my photo, a friend of hers took this)
