Yep, that’s right, folks. It’s done. But it isn’t about me. This is Ben’s time. He graduates this coming Sunday, April 29, from the University of Pittsburgh with a major in Material Science Engineering and a double minor in physics and philosophy. But Ben being Ben, the experience he is really looking forward to this weekend is the NFL draft all day Saturday.
We are working with my older son, Jon, to see if he can fly out from Chicago to Ben’s graduation. It would be great to be together. Hope it works out. Three years ago we were going out to Golden, CO to attend Jon’s graduation at the Colorado School of Mines, help pack him up and bring him home.
It’s been quite a ride, sons. Well done.
Ben’s next step is to move out to Santa Barbara, CA to do PhD work at UC in material sciences. Classes start in late Sept but he hopes to move out there in August.
