So yes! The Boy did graduate - cum laude as a matter of fact! With praise indeed.

He earned a bachelor of fine art in the fine arts, with a minor in art history.

Do you suppose we have to stop calling him The Boy now?

Two hundred forty nine students received their diplomas.

For those who could not attend - here are some images of the day...

The official announcements (yes I bought them - no they're not mailed yet! any other silly questions?)

The marquee at the beautiful Ohio Theater in downtown Columbus, Ohio

These next three are lifted from the CCAD web site...

Inside the theater, an amazingly beautiful place

Commencement speaker Ed Razek, president and chief marketing officer, brand & creative services for Limited Brands - Gloria gave him an "A", John an "F" so that's about right for our family!

It's art school - you should have seen the "amendments" to the regalia!

Walking across the stage to accept his diploma (the out of focus shot should lead you back to where I'm taking the photos!)

The students are ready to be presented

Proud Mommy and The Boy

Gramma Gloria and Grampa Bill are here. So are John, Aunt Diana, Mandi, Aunt Debbie, Megan, and Morgan - but we did not take nearly enough pictures!

A quick stop at The Show where Ian's "In Her Blue Chair Rocking" was one of the senior pieces selected for display.

Then we're off to Buca di Beppo for a grand luncheon

A wonderful, happy day!
