The end of graduation season

Thankfully, I've been emerging from the seasonal funk I have been in (read my previous post about mid-life FOMO or MAMO last week). I headed out to see five of the seniors from church graduate, the official last graduation of the season.

Kerri, whose son Collin graduated, right there in the middle of the picture below, texted me about 10 minutes before it started asking if I was there yet. I thought it started an hour later than it did, so I changed clothes in a flash, sped out to the college where the graduation was being held and by the time I finally found parking, only missed half of the class walking in.

I figured out better settings on my camera than last week, thankfully.

Thankfully, I was in a better headspace this week. However, I'm not going to lie, the Valedictorian speech was hard. It's not what she said, it's the fact there just was one. Paige wasn't able to give hers. That makes me sad.

After being the official photographer for the Barham family, I got to spend some time celebrating at a get together at their house before they headed off to Project Graduation. If I hadn't been up until 2 AM the night before, Kerri may have been able to talk me into staying up all night to take the trip with her. I was just too tired for that!

Everybody's growing up, especially my previous little church parking lot stalkers.
