The First Graduation.


Adding to the cray cray ness of our weekend of mothers day and baptisms and nats games, we piled on attending the University of Mary Washington’s graduation ceremony on Saturday. I honestly can’t believe that it’s already been a year since my graduation from GW last May and now it was Catherine and Robert’s turn! Honestly, to know I never have to wear one of those lovely cardboard hats again…is oh so satisfying :), but…yall looked great…I swear….honestly…ahem. šŸ™‚

Small schools= way awesomely laid back graduations. We strolled in a bit late (thanks 95s), and parked ourselves under this super large and in charge tree where the branches made a lil leafy tent, perfect for hiding baby from sunshine and an overabundance of strangers and sitting in uncomfy chairs for 3 hours. Felt a bit like a spy, snooping through the leaves to catch glimpses of the ceremony, but it mark it in the book of different experiences, “sat through a graduation like a keebler elf”.

Hard not to imagine Luke one day graduating…yes, we have to first get through a kindergarden graduation, heck even before that we gotta graduate to eating real food and so much more, but SOME DAY this will be happening…probably wearing a nice purple JMU gown…or ya know, wherever he wants to go…without any persuasions from mom…not a one… (fingers crossed behind back).

"We're going to a what?!"
“We’re going to a what?!”
Be very very quiet….we’re huntin Graduates….
