Carl’s Graduation Pictures

I wanted to share some pics from the graduation. I have to admit that I am no longer the parent that has a camera hanging on my arm or in the center of the action anymore. I used to be ….and I always think I wish I had gotten more pictures. But the truth is that as much as I like the pictures…I felt like I was always missing the moments. So I have to decide whether i want to live in the moments or have my camera capture them…..and as I have gotten older i have decided to put the camera down for a bit. So I didn’t capture everything on film…but I did in my mind.

The way that our graduation process works is that we have graduation friday night…then a party the next day.  So some people come friday night..some come saturday ..some stay for both.

I feel bad that I didn’t get any photos of the party… lots of people were there for that and I didn’t capture the photos. 🙂 but Just know that we appreciate all of them very much and they are all part of our village.

I am excited for this new chapter in Carl’s life and to see what will unfold…..I am so thankful for all of the people in our lives who have risen to the occasion and helped us along the way. It is no easy task raising 6 kids and our village of people have been exceptional. It’s a blessed life.

Thank you so much!
