So yesterday was the big day for The Compensator. He got all gussied up in his cap and gown (which I maintain he looked hot in), and received his nifty diploma cover. Here are some photos that chronicle the event.

Here are TC and his colleagues walking into the auditorium. The sea of black and red was astounding.

TC and his classmate Nick. They worked in the same basement lab (which was dark and dank, according to some sources). There were some good times, and then some other times. The only two males on their research team, they had to stick together.

TC and Gordis after the ceremony with our nephew Matias. He's cute isn't he? I am displaying TC's diploma cover, which was the prized gift of the day.

TC with his sisters and nephew (left to right: Julieta, TC, Matias, Rosalia and Victoria).

TC and brother-in-law Noel. And of course, once TC and Matias met up, they were inseparable.

Mom and Dad came too. And, just to be completely festive, they wore red. Go Utah!

Here's the lovely Julie. What a gorgeous girl.

We went to Tucanos to celebrate the occasion. Once our waitress (center) found out that we were celebrating TC's graduation, they brought him a complimentary dessert and sang "Happy Birthday" to him in Portuguese. It's the thought that counts.

TC and Vicky get close for a photo. Any resemblance?

This is Matias once he saw the complimentary dessert that the happy graduate got. He was so excited to see the mounds of whipped cream and chocolate syrup

Kaye Lani and Kylie playing pat-a-cake. Kylie is having a great time!

Carter actually posed for me, after I took twelve silly photos of him first.
