Well, on May 16th, 2010, Melanie graduated from the William and Mary School of Law in Williamsburg, VA. Needless to say this is a BIG accomplishment for her and it could not make us any prouder. Melanie has accomplished every goal she has set for herself academically. This is what we hope to be her first step into life, career, and service to the community. Her next steps are to pass the Virginia BAR and find a job. Anyone with contacts in the legal profession, please contact her.
We drove up to VA to meet with Mely and Michael. We had a couple of days before the graduation for sight seeing and spending time together. Stephie joined us on Saturday night for the Law School Party at W&M’s Lake Matoaka. The graduation was on Sunday at 3PM and the weather could not have been better. We listened to Retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor give the commencement speech. It was a great speech! She seemed very nice and knowledgeable. She gave excellent advise to the new graduates. After graduation we all attended a reception at the Law School and then celebrated Melanie’s accomplishments at “Plaza Azteca”. This is an excellent Mexican restaurant in Williamsburg. If you are in the area do give it a try.
You can see the pictures here.
Monday’s weather was miserable, so we decided to stay overnight and didn’t drive back to Orlando until the next day. So we spent the day with Melanie and then in the evening we all spent time with Katia and Tony Busquet, ou dear friends that live in Yorktown.
We all had a great time!
