We spent the weekend down in Urbana-Champaign for my little sister Cathy's graduation from the University of Illinois.
The small ceremony for Cathy's college was really beautiful. She majored in Spanish, and the professors gave a rousing defense of studying the liberal arts. I was impressed.

On Sunday before Mass, we went to an early-morning breakfast reception at the President's house.
I'm so proud of my "little" (as the girls in her sorority would say). Congratulations to Cathy and all the newly minted grown-ups who graduated from college this weekend!
