Phillips-Exeter Academy Commencement

This weekend we had the brilliant opportunity to join our Farmer family relatives up at Exeter, New Hampshire for our cousin Katherine's graduation from high school. Grandma, Mom, Hannah, Rebecca and I left early Saturday morning and arrived to a rather dreary, rainy Exeter. We spent the afternoon catching up with Uncle Jeff and Aunt Marilyn and visiting with Katherine in her dorm room. Katherine's family arrived mid afternoon and we all were treated to a senior reception, capped by a dinner at an Italian restaurant. Today we rose bright and early to a beautiful, sunny day, went to a prayer service of thanksgiving, and enjoyed the commencement ceremony and following picnic on the lawn. It was a great weekend and we were so happy to celebrate with Katherine and thrilled with her achievements! - Nate Angell
