Yesterday my little brother graduated from high school. The graduation itself was interesting. It was held at the school’s football stadium, which was a first. It was so HOT. We were sweating bullets. People had umbrellas and made fans out of the programs… anything to get some relief. The ceremony was casual, which was kinda nice, but some of the people sitting around us were really rude as a result. But people stood up, moved around, and we got to be really close to the graduates, so that was cool. Despite the heat, I had a lot of fun.
Being there made me think of my own high school graduation, and how it seems like just yesterday that I was starting off my senior year, with my little bro entering high school as a freshman.
What’s even weirder is that I can still clearly remember him as this little kid who wanted to do everything that I did.
I missed my brother's high school graduation :(
There were SO MANY EXTREMELY RUDE people at my high school graduation. There were tons and tons of those loud blow horn things that were technically prohibited. I would say that probably half of the kids from my HS had never had someone in their family graduate college before, so these families went ALL OUT when their grad crossed the stage. It was crazy obnoxious and tacky and I'm still upset about. Oh well!
Yeah, the blow horn thing is annoying. Luckily the people before and after my brother didn't have anyone too obnoxious cheering for them! We mostly had problems with the people sitting near us talking at full volume during the speakers.
Kate!! Those pictures are so cute! You look just the same. Also, I'm going to see Toy Story 3 now. :)
