He’s Phinished*!

Jeff is now Dr. Goldsmith. No more being the student, now he'll be the teacher. In NYC. At Columbia! We are oh so proud of him. And of Celia who was there with him all the way.

We took photos before, during, and after. I'll share some of what I consider to be the best ones, like the one below. An unposed moment that says it all:

Gotta love the fact that Celia is dressed to coordinate with Jeff's showy, Hopkins, bee-colored robes. Even down to her shoes. I was impressed!

They are so good together!

The actual graduation ceremony was only 2.5 hours long. I embroidered on my AAQI quilt during most of it. Quietly. I gotta say that for me, this really made the long, long minutes of names of people I will never know go by quickly. I'm so glad it wasn't dark.

His name was called, he got a piece of paper, shook some hands, got his hood. Done!

Here he is, after the ceremony with Ciprian, his advisor. Ciprian did so much to teach and help Jeff. It was very nice to get a chance to shake his hand (and take his picture!).

Tonight we're going out to dinner to celebrate. Tomorrow we head back to Texas. Every day is an adventure, is it not?!

*I borrowed that spelling from Celia. She's so good!

  2. I was impressed with the shoes before you even mentioned it! Very nice that he is FINISHED…. I have one who I don’t think will ever finish.. advisors keep retiring and her work is more and more demanding so… time will tell.. Wonderful colors for his cape and gown…. he will stand out every graduation ceremony… and he will be going to ALL of them – light dark hot cold LOL.
