What a looooooong but absolutely fantastic day! It all began at 6am as we juggled time in the bathroom for showers, hairdos (Kazi's obviously not mine!), makeup etc. I managed to snap one photo of Kazi before her friend whisked her away to the university to pick up their regalia. About 30 minutes later Michael, our neighbour Alma (Kazi's adopted gramma) and I made our way to Western U as well. It was already about 30c (90F) and HUMID! I dashed around looking for Kazi as I had to hold everyone's purses during the proceedings. It took a while but finally I made my way back to Alumni Hall where the convocation was taking place. Kazi's boyfriend Steve had also arrived by this time so we took our seats and waited....
At 9:30 the grads and faculty processed in. See that blond head dead centre in the lower third of the above photo? Yup, that's my girl!
Ta da! We did it!! Another major milestone reached!
Then...out into the crazy heat for a few more photos of course!
I get to show you Kazi's cute boyfriend - Steve!
Michael and Kazi - great smiles you two!
Showing off Western U's colours! Go PURPLE!
This is what $30,000 gets you?
My favorite photo of the day - I prefer candid shots. Oh, and that's the dress I helped pay for (that's what $250 gets you!)
She's not really that much taller than me...she had on platform sandals....it's true!
I'm stopping here for now as it's getting late...I'll let you know about the rest of the day tomorrow!
