Between yesterday’s round-trips to Bradley Airport and Hofstra University (I suspect this is the first time I’ve mentioned Stef’s school by name in the blog… now that she’s done) and today’s additional round-trip to Hofstra I am fried! So is everyone else in the family. It was all well worth it.
Stef walked with (judging by the call of names) three or four million fellow graduates on the Hofstra University football field. It was a marvelous moment for Helaine, my parents and me–Stef too I suppose. This was the culmination of 17 years of education. It all began with the “Counting Worm” on the wall outside her kindergarten class!
The Fox family has been through a lot. A child cannot grow to nearly 22 years (Stef will be celebrating her second 21st birthday next month) without some angst, grief and premature aging of her parents. Stef did not disappoint in that regard.
I will write more about today later. Meanwhile, tonight it seems like quite an accomplishment and we are proud of all she did.
