I finally opened my graduation photo files from Sunday evening. Took me long enough, I think. I don’t have much of anything to share with you but at least I started working on them and the few that I can show you are below.
I would never share photographs of the students at my school without permission, but these are mostly taken from behind. After the ceremony that is held in the auditorium, the seniors proceed to one of the outdoor courtyards where they wait in a receiving line and are greeted first by the faculty and then by all the guests.
When there were only a dozen or so of them, as it was in 2003 when our son, Matt, graduated, there are now over 30. This makes the line much longer, but it is what it is. I like this one where they are all waiting. The girl in the foreground is the fourth and last in her family to graduate, beginning with her older brother in 2000, I believe.
Our salutatorian is the little blonde you see, and that’s my friend and co-worker, Alisa, who is giving her a hug. This year’s graduating class was in kindergarten when I started at the school.
My friend and co-worker, Christine, with two of her daughters. They live in the development right through the trees off our property. The one on the left takes care of our plants when we’re away in the summer. The one on the right is home from college. We had trouble getting them all together for a family photo because there were so many people.
You see? Their daughter was graduating this year and we couldn’t find her older sister for the shot, so I took one without her. We call Christine’s husband “Saint John” partly because he’s a great guy and partly because he’s in a houseful of womenfolk.
And that’s all I got for you today.
So how are things in your neck of the woods? It’s supposed to be super hot here on Wednesday. I may have to invest in a kiddie pool.
