Hey, friends! It’s May, which means lots and lots of graduations. We got to attend a few this year, so we thought we’d share them with you.
First, we barely got back from vacation in time to see Devon’s little brother Gavin graduate from college. He received a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Arkansas Tech University. Gavin worked really hard and finished strong, and we were proud to see him graduate and to celebrate with him.
Then last week, Katherine’s little sister Hannah graduated high school. She attended Southside High School in Fort Smith, the same school Katherine graduated from a few years ago. We had a good time sitting with Katherine’s family and watching Hannah walk across the stage. Finishing high school was a big accomplishment for her, and we can’t wait to see what she does next!
Devon was also asked to work a graduation for a local homeschool group. They held it at our church last weekend, so he took care of all of audio and video needs. It was different from most graduations we’ve been to. It was a lot smaller, but that just gave each student more time to be celebrated, which was cool to see. And it was a honor to be asked to be a part of such a big day in their lives!
We’ve got one more ceremony before our graduation season ends for this year, but it’s not for high school or college graduates. It’s for preschool graduates! The pre-kindergarten class at the church is celebrating their graduation into kindergarten with a performance and ceremony that Devon will be helping with. Katherine has worked with a lot of the kids who will be graduating, too, so it’ll be a fun, adorable way to celebrate them as we send them off to school.
It’s safe to say that our first graduation season as a couple was a success! And of course, there will be many more in the years to come. It’s wonderful to be able to share these special celebratory moments with each other as we’re becoming more and more integrated into one another’s families. And we love sharing these memories with you as well! Thank you for reading, and we hope you’ve had as meaningful of a graduation season as we have.
