Purdue Commemencement 2013
So far we've been able to score two-for-one on our Purdue graduations!
Back in 2007 Andrew and Kara completed their undergrad degrees together. (Kara saved some money by squashing her classes into three years.)

(Kristen earned some snazzy tassels, too, but hadn't received them by the photo shoot.)
Deciding that it was such a good thing to have an older brother watch out for his younger sister, we made Andrew stay at Purdue for another six years so he could be there for his next sister's Purdue tenure.
We had a lovely weekend in West Lafayette! Besides attending the two commencements plus Kristen's nursing pinning ceremony, we also had a wonderful time celebrating with Andrew and Kara's church and lab friends at a cookout at Andrew's house.
And here's our family (minus Kara and crew) on a pillar of one of Purdue's beautiful fountains. From the top: Ben, Paul, Tim, Peter, Kristen, Andrew, Jonathan, Faith, Amanda, and me.
