Graduation Season (w/Loved Ones)

It's graduation season!

To be honest, I am no fan of graduation ceremonies.  They're just...LONG.  :-) The only snippet of excitement is when you/or that loved one walks across the stage. And that lasts, what, five seconds? In fact, I dread graduation ceremonies so much I didn't walk in my OWN ceremony last weekend (for the degree I finished back in December). Yeah.

But every once in a while, I do go to a ceremony.  This one was for my peeps!

Aunt T

Cousin T

I had two relatives graduate in the same ceremony last Friday.  Perfect. 


My aunt who graduated is my dad's sister, so M got to see her Big Daddy.  Of course she was glued to him the whole time.

W/my sweet stepmom. 


Both of these are my dad's sisters.  They are hilarious (in fact, my dad and his siblings all have that funny gene), so they're always fun to be around.  My aunts are SO sweet and supportive, and I just love them. 

                            


My cousin T also graduated. She's from my mom's side. We grew up together, going to the same schools all our lives. That's my Aunt E on the other end (my mom's sister).


I also grew up with A (pictured right).  I don't see them often, so this was a treat.  
The last time were were all together was here


And this one is my "baby" cousin, who just finished her first year of college. 
She is SO cute and sweet (and stylish).  I'm so proud of her.


It was kinda surreal getting to see two sides of my family that day.  I am so proud of my aunt and cousin because they did this degree thing while being mothers and working full time. If you've never had to go to school while working and being a parent, consider yourself lucky. It's TOUGH. I am SO proud of them.

Have a great weekend, folks!

Love,
G
