Silver Lining: we graduated!

April 27, 2013

we graduated!

I've been a teacher for almost a year now, and I haven't been on campus or taken a class for months, but I hadn't officially graduated yet (my first year of teaching was technically an internship, which is the main reason I hadn't done the whole cap and gown thing. Also I wanted to wait so I could walk with Sam).

I thought going back to graduate would feel weird, since campus hasn't been a part of my life for so long. But it wasn't weird. It was good to reconnect with my friends, thank many of my mentors and professors, and so good to be with my family (bless my family's heart for sitting through hours of convocations).

So here's to finally having pictures together to prove I graduated from college.

Also, apparently I forgot to iron my right sleeve, which is of course the sleeve in all the pictures.

Caitlin! With me since the very first day when she broke my ice cube trays

two of my best first-year mentors (missing Lori)

giving my dad the stole of gratitude. my dad always gets weepy at occasions like these, and it's so cute. 

Thank you to everyone who made the day so great, 
sent congratulations,
and supported us through all those years.
We're so grateful for you!
And now onward and upward :)
