[KP] graduated from college a few weeks ago! It was so awesome and I was so proud of him the entire time I was there. At first we were not sure if he would walk with his class or not because they were scheduled to be playing in a baseball tournament a few hours away on graduation day. Because they lost the first two games of the tournament they were eliminated and he was able to attend graduation! (I've never been so thankful for loses, Shh!) He honestly didn't want to walk just because it was 3 1/2 hours long and boring at some points. But I think afterwards he was glad he did it and I know he will appreciate the fact that he did in the future.
It was a great ceremony in a large convention center in Lakeland.
It did last 3 1/2 hours.
Which is WAY excessive! Expecially when it starts at 7:30pm.
By the time we got out nothing was open except Buffalo Wild Wings. (which I never turn down)
It was all in all a great night!
Here's some pictures:
Class of 2011!!
[KP] is on the end of the last row.
getting ready to walk up.
400 graduates this year. Largest class ever for Southeastern (small Christian university in Lakeland, FL).
My handsome grad :) YES, he did walk across the stage with the croakie on. And all his friends were yelling "Bigsnook" (his nickname) when he walked across the stage!
He looks so happy here.. haha, not!
Smiling picture! I wore my new Lilly dress that I scooped up at the Leapin' Lizards Basement Event. Its the Bel air dress in carson's grandstand patch! And I broke in my new white jacks.
He was dying to take the cap off!

Congrats to my handsome BF 2011 grad! Can't wait to join you in your new graduation status in August! I love you and I am so proud of everything you have accomplished :)
Any one else attend any graduations lately?
Hope everyone had a great weekend and has a great week!
