Boston in May

 The Hubby, The Boy, and I were in Boston recently:

We were there to witness Harvard's 363rd commencement ceremony. Yup, you read that right: three-hundred-sixty-third!

 Lovely Daughter #2 received her Masters' degree:

 And there were some very, very proud parents:

 Congratulations, LD#2!
