Ross's Swarthmore Graduation

Ross graduated from Swarthmore June 1.  We drove down with Ariana, who had flown in to Boston for the occasion.  We stayed with Renée and Papa at Renée's place on Rittenhouse square, then went to the Baccalaureate ceremony on Saturday morning and to a short reunion of the students from Ross's freshman hall.  We met Kathy's parents, Al and Carole, at a fine restaurant called Osteria for dinner Saturday evening.  The graduation itself was Sunday morning.
