Graduation Day!!!

                                             Douglas Chance Lionberger, J.D.

Today was truly a special day.  Doug graduated from the University of California, Boalt School of Law, at Berkeley. He has wanted to be a lawyer since he was about four years old so this was the fulfillment of a dream for him.  After all the graduation festivities, he starts studying to take the New York Bar Exam which will be given in NYC the end of July.  He and Leigh Anne have a celebratory trip planned for the month of August before Doug starts working for the law firm of Vinson & Elkins in New York City in October.

Congratulations, Doug!!!  I am so proud of you!!!!  (those were happy tears!)

After the extremely fun commencement program (who would have thought???), we had a family picnic at the Berkeley Marina hosted by Doug, Leigh Anne and Mark & Peggy Brown, and later in the evening a dinner celebration at "The Rivoli".  It was a great, great  day!!!

Thanks so much for sharing Doug's graduation with all of us. I am been so impressed with D and L while you've been visiting the west coast. They seem to be the "best kids" around. Continue the celebration of this passage with great joy! It is truly a great accomplishment.

What an extra-special post, Peggy. Congratulations to Doug and to you, his rightfully proud mother! I've enjoyed getting to know Doug and Leigh Anne through your posts and will miss them when you move along to the next leg of your adventure and they move along to theirs. Congratulations to all on this special day.
