Sean's Graduation Weekend

Monday, May 13, 2013

My little brother graduated from college this weekend.

I stayed at Sean's apartment on Friday night and got to Wheeler Mall early on Saturday morning to save some seats for me and my parents. As people milled about, hugging and buzzing excitedly, with orchestra music playing over the sound system, I couldn't help but get a little emotional. Longwood is really the place where I started to become the person I am today, and it was such a joy to share that one year on campus together with my brother before I graduated just three years ago. 

It was a special place for me, and a special place for Sean, and a special place for me and Sean.

On Sunday, I went to upload photos from my dad's camera, where we took all the family shots, and realized that we had left the memory card in Roanoke. So we did what any normal family would do, and made Sean put his cap and gown back on.

Rocky got in on it, too.

Congratulations, Class of 2013.

And happy belated Mother's Day to all you moms out there.
I know ours enjoyed having both of her babies in one place (and double flowers).

  4. Congrats to Sean, and the entire family. Your parents have a 100% success rate!

    Love all the pics, most especially the one where Sean is giving you a hug that looks suspiciously like a hard squeeze, and the one with Rocky in Sean's cap-love it the most! What a fabulous weekend for a fabulous family!
