Last week we spent most of the week at the home of Texas A&M University.  The reason being was that our Amazing Daughter was graduating.

Over the next couple of days, I thought I would share in some of our adventures.

Let’s start off with tradition.  A&M is all about traditions.  When we flew back to do the college tour of some Texas schools way back when, we first spotted this as we were driving into College Station.

This is actually on someone’s ranch.  You have to request in order to have your pictures taken.  So we did the necessary steps in order to do this…

Pretty cool!

Next, we drove back to campus to take this picture.

Another tradition at A&M is that all students order the same ring upon becoming a senior.  Amazing Daughter is standing right inside of the HUGE replica of the Aggie ring that graces the campus.   Can you tell it was a very windy day!

Since we arrived on the last morning of finals, the campus was at a low hum.  Amazing Daughter was quite concerned that she had not returned her library books.

To say that she had a book or two out was an understatement!  She was very worried that she would not be allowed to graduate because of a library fine.

So we returned them.  I just want you to know that I gained IQ points just by carrying the bag!

I always knew that Amazing Daughter spent a lot of time in the library.  We stepped inside to make sure all was clear and the lovely librarians recognized her immediately.  Congrads and good byes were said.

As we were leaving I reading this…

Hmm…. I turned to Amazing Daughter and she said without me even asking the question, Yes she had to call more than once during her tenure.  At least they said thank you!   Aw, shucks!

We SOOOOOOO enjoyed our first day back in lovely College Station.  Amazing Daughter walked us around the campus to show us her favorite spots.  I find it interesting that each year she did this, we went the same route.

More tomorrow!
