Today we all watched as Gretel put on her cap and gown to join her graduating class. Even though she officially graduated from William and Mary this past December, it was a special moment to watch her file in, big purple flower in hand (so we could identify her), among the sea of black robes. The weekend has been filled with inspirational speeches about hope and courage and following your dreams. The whole family had some drippy eyes as we thought about the dream Gretel was pursing right now and the courage she was mustering every day to make it a reality. The dream of finishing her undergrad is now behind her, the challenge of law school is ahead, and she is in the midst of completing the longest walking path in the world with her brother by her side!
Congratulations Gretel and Happy Trails!
The Whole Gang!
