Today we were at DD2's public defense of her thesis. They call it a defense, I would call it a presentation of her work and thesis. Her family was there - me, her dad, sister, brother, husband and daughter. I missed some of her talk because her husband (who is wonderful, by the way) and I were taking turns entertaining her 15 month old daughter who luckily likes to climb up and down stairs! I did get to hear her mentor introduce her and it really made me proud to hear how highly thought of she is in her profession.
I will be honest and say I didn't understand a lot of what she said, but I do get the theory behind the data.
Her dad and I stayed with her through the whole reception. Husband took sister, brother, and baby home for nap time.
When we finally got home, we went to the Baltimore harbor and went to a buffet which serves crab - one thing my son wanted to do while here. So I had a salad, a baked potato and some shrimp since I do not like crab. Everyone else, including the baby, ate crab for a long time.
After dinner, we walked to their house, gave baby a bath, and she was out for the night. the walk helped work off a little of the dinner.
All in all today, I walked 2 miles. Might make up for the cupcake I ate at the reception?
Good day. Focused on DD2. It was her day! Tomorrow we will go to the aquarium to be inside out of this heat. Don't need 15 month old or six month pregnant DD1 out in the heat.
