The Graduates

Emma the Graduate

I share pics on Instagram and Facebook but for those who do not follow me there, here are some photos of my graduates! Emma graduated from high school last night. It was a lovely, brief, in-person ceremony. The song the senior choir members sang really choked me up. Her next stop is Missouri State in August.

Evan the Graduate.

Evan graduates from Cal Poly SLO next week. He will be coming home in a little while, staying for a short while and then heading to Kansas for AmeriCorps.

God, we love these kids. It was hard to see my son off to college but he was a transfer student and had already done the Disney College Program in Orlando so we had a taste of him being away, plus his university is a three hour drive from us. But Emma’s school will be a 20 hour drive. Not as easy to pop-in for a visit, for sure. I will miss seeing all her shows but we will try to attend a few now and then.

These next few months will be a rollercoaster of emotions for me. I know many other parents going through the same emotions right now so there are plenty of pals to have Margaritas with but wow, you figure this time will come but even though you prepare yourself for it, it’s a doozy.

Congratulations to my grads and to all those graduating this year. It was a year, wasn’t it? We never thought the pandemic would carry over into this year too. Boy, did it.
