May 17 - 18, 2008
We trudged back to Cleveland to pick up Jeanned from JCU for the last time and witness her graduation. It was another long ride. We left Friday after work and stayed in Toledo for the night. Saturday morning we got up (not too early) and drove to JCU to see our little "Graduate to be".

She had a few things packed up, which we dragged back out to the car before heading off to the hotel. We changed and then drove back to campus for her Baccalaureate Mass. Jeanne served as a Eucharistic Minister at the mass. She was also among a group of 23 students who were given special recognition for postgraduate service programs (more on that later).

Dennis and Ceil Walsh had a little party for their daughter, Eileen, who is one of Jeanne's friends as well as her crew teammate. The Walsh's graciously invited us over to join in their celebration.

The graduation ceremony was Sunday at 11:00 AM. They held the ceremony at the Wolstein Center in downtown Cleveland. Parking was a challenge, but we got it done, and you can witness the entire saga in the photos below!
