Yes, I graduated. More years ago now than I'd like to admit.

This is with BJ & a friend, Jackson Doyle.

And this is my crazy little family.

John graduated from Rockville that year. As did Will and Rodney. But somehow I only have these pictures of John in cap and gown.

Since there were five of us from church who graduated that year, we had one big combined graduation party out at Forest Park. (BJ, I have no idea why you got halfway cut off in the picture. I wasn't the photographer, so I can't take the blame for that one.)

That's Carrie Lynn. Shiloh's very best friend. (Although, Carrie and I have always been pretty close, too.)

Brandon Bob! I loved this kid. He ended up dating Shiloh.

Jenny & Carrie

And of course, Cami with Jenny and Brandon

It makes me a little ill to see how young my mom looks in this picture. Then again I guess she was only 39. That makes me a little ill considering my husband will be 38 before the year is out.

Later that night we ended up at Jackson's graduation party held out in the middle of nowhere at some ancient school house his family owned. Believe it or not, this was not the craziest part of the night. If I remember correctly, before everything was said and done, some of you were shooting bottle rockets and cows.

And this was 10 days after graduation. Shiloh's car met with a telephone poll when I was driving too fast in the rain. I still feel really bad about that.

On the bright side. It's the only wreck I've ever been in. (knock on wood.)

To bad about the car. I totalled my sisters mini-van 6 years ago and I still feel horrible about it! Of course I didn't have the excuse of rain. I was just driving way too fast and swerved to miss a TURTLE!!! Rolled and flipped the fan in the process. True story!!!

Wow, I did look young! It doesn't seem that long ago, but when you think it's been 13 years.... Where did the time go?

That was a long time ago, and the only time the whole family attended a graduation. We've come a long way to the point that Hillary and Cody did not even want to participate in their High School Commencement Exercises, instead they just wanted to get on with School/work/mission stuff. Hillary did Go through the commencement from UCMT though. Cody promised he will go through commencement when he Graduates from College.

Why do I look retarded in all these pictures? No one told me I had chicken legs! And why am I wearing the same outfits, UNC hat, Blue plaid shirt, and jeans over, and over, and over again. Some siters you are for letting me go out like that.
