Another Grandchild Graduates

This was my world last week...attending the graduation of my daughter’s middle son, Willy, from Saint Andrews School in Middletown, Delaware, on Friday. Gene, Eloise, and I drove up on Thursday, and then we drove back to Lexington on Saturday to spend the Memorial Day weekend on the creek. My daughter’s older son, Crenshaw, graduated from Saint Andrews two years ago. The campus is beautiful and reminds me so much of Oxford. The following is a series of  pictures of the buildings and a bit of the graduation. 

Clock Tower 
I just love the 2012 banner hanging there 
in all of its glory!

The Chapel  ~ Scenes in the movie "Dead Poet’s Society" were filmed in this chapel.

Graduation Seating

Piper piping for the graduates’ procession. Two years ago when my eldest grandchild graduated there were 5 or 6 bagpipers piping, but this year there was only one and he did one great job!

 The Happy Graduate

 Here are the cousins:

 Last but not is the family. It was one beautiful day for a graduation.
