College Graduation

It has been over 75 days since my last post.

Good gracious!

I have a lot of catching to do.

But first things first,

I am officially a mom to a college graduate!

Brooke graduated from NC State University last week with a degree in 
graphic design. 

The week before graduation, I attended her senior project exhibit.

The School of Design held their graduation the day before the larger university wide commencement. 

I love this picture. Brooke is walking across the stage, Art (daddy) is videoing and all of my girls are being shown on the screen.

My dad came.

BF2 came all the way from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill 
and even wore his Carolina blue among all of that NC State red. 
(He also graduated.)

Brittany was there, but unfortunately Barrett was not able to go.
Her school's soccer team made it into the conference playoffs and she had to go to Charlotte for that. 

Saturday afternoon, she opened her graduation present ....

she was surprised and very happy!

Saturday night we went to dinner with BF2's family. 
It was so nice to get to know them, they are a great family. 

Barrett is looking so grown up!
It is killing me!

Congratulations Brooke and BF2!!!

Congrats to another NCSU grad! My roommate graduated from School of Design in Graphic Design. I love the red robes. When did they change from black? (I hope you forgave BF2 for wearing his lt. blue)
