Thursday night we drove up for Mark's graduation from University of California at Davis. He earned his PhD nine months ago (after a mere nine years) but the ceremony was yesterday. Mark and a friend Chris rented out an Indian restaurant for a crowd to celebrate their official doctoral status. Claire told a funny story about Mark at three years old inquisitively asking, "Mom... what's smalla dan a peck a dust?" or translated "What's smaller than a speck of dust?" Congrats Mark!
