I just have to share some wonderful news with you all. My eldest son, Lyman, was accepted at Cornell University today! I am so proud I am bursting because he has worked so hard the last two years at his present college to maintain a full load, keep a 4.0, serve on seven committees and for the last year served at Student Senate President. He will be the first member of our family to attend an Ivy League college since his grandfather graduated from Princeton. I only wish that his father and his grandfather were alive to share this with us. I'm attaching pictures of him at two recent award events where he was awarded Student Leadership awards. He is majoring in Economic Policy and minoring in math. Thanks for letting me share this. I'm bursting with pride. :chili:

Kim I am so happy for you and Lyman. I know how hard he has worked and he is so deserving. Congrats to you both! It is such a shame that his father and grandfather cannot be around to share Lyman's accomplishments. I know Bill feels like a proud father for them. Congrats again g/f.

**We toasted Lyman at dinner tonight.
