As of today, my Eric has officially graduated from Utah State University.
This is not a picture of him (actually, I don't know who these people are), because he chose not to participate in today's graduation ceremonies.
I'm totally okay with that. As I think back over all the hurdles that he's had on the road to this achievement (most of them before I even knew him), I'm just so proud that he stuck with it. If he doesn't want to go through the whole ceremony with the strange hat and flowing gown, it's okay with me.
('Cause you know, Eric wouldn't be caught dead in a weird-looking hat.)
(you handsome devil, you)
