Yesterday was a whirlwind day, which didn't leave time to post (and a post at midnight that would have been about how tired I was wasn't worth it).
After work, Cody and I went to an award ceremony for him (and a few other students at his college). Cody was selected as The Outstanding Student of the Computer Integrated Electronics Department. Out of all the students this semester, Cody was nominated by his professor for this award, standing out from the rest of the students in all his CIE classes for a plethora of reasons, including his natural leadership, positive attitude, and aptitude for making everyone around him comfortable. Now, I've always known Cody is outstanding (for all these reasons and more), and I'm incredibly happy that other people acknowledge it, too. The proof, as they don't really say, is in the lovely plaque and award.
The ceremony was well done and fun, and afterward we got to rub elbows with all the other outstanding students from the other departments. All in all, it would have been a lovely end to the evening, but we added in a late-night (for us) screening of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The film was fun and filled with action—everything I expected from an X-Men flick.
This weekend, we continue the celebration of Cody's excellence. It's a wonderful reason to indulge in all things fun.
