Last Saturday, October 17th, was a very special day for my family and I. Another milestone was achieved by one of my brothers, Kirk. He graduated top of his class as Magna Cum Laude. My mother was in tears as can be seen in the pictures because she was so happy and well, she's a Mom and I guess that's what Mom's do. Hehe.
He wasn't able to give the speech because it was given to a deaf mute who also graduated Magna Cum Laude but was only 2nd to my brother over all. They gave her the privilege because she was special. It's cool though. My brother still received the honor he deserved to have. I myself was teary eyed when we were pinning the medal to him. It was a glorious moment and I am happy that I was there.
Afterwards, we ate at Sakae Sushi and went for a Sushi buffet. As you can see on the pictures, we consumed a lot of sushi and what we paid for was well worth it.
A lot more happened after the graduation but that deserves another blog entry. For now ... I leave you with pictures of one of the milestones in ou life.
the invitation - VIP!
our Mom crying ... hehe
