To LCA's Smith College commencement weekend, one of those celebratory moments tinged with melancholy. This marks the end of 12 years with a daughter at Smith (actually, now that I think of it, eleven years-- CLA transferred in after her year at my alma mater proved unfulfilling.) Smith does it up right-- the campus, which is beautiful all the time, shows up in a particularly spectacular way when in full bloom. My parents and my sister were able to attend, which made us a larger, convivial group. Regular Outside Counsel readers will recall that my father sustained an injury playing tennis, which limited his mobility somewhat, but lemons to lemonade this meant that we enjoyed preferred seating, and I got to spend a little extra time with my folks.
The experience of each of our daughters at Smith was distinctive, and that is a testament to this remarkable school. We were very fortunate to have been able to experience their adventures vicariously, and to have been able to give them each their unique experience.  It was also pretty great to have a reason to visit Northampton regularly, a place I otherwise might never have gotten to.
I didn't even get to Local Burger this time, and now I have no assurance that I ever will again. (We did have one last meal at the East Side Grill, very nice, as always.) We also got a last look at the (amazing) Smith Museum of Art and the Rare Book Room at the library.
