Jeremy’s Graduation | A very soggy ceremony

When Jeremy and I arrived on campus just before 9 a.m. on Saturday the campus was bustling with umbrellas and graduates in robes. With the scheduled start of the ceremony an hour away, I assumed the University was making plans to move the ceremony indoors.  The radar indicated light to medium showers for the morning and the green blob wasn’t going anywhere.

I assumed wrong. The University wasn’t making plans to move the graduation, we were going to have the graduation on the lawn as planned. I picked a drenched plastic chair and planted myself in one soggy spot for the next 3 hours. It was just as miserable as it sounds. Umbrellas as far as the eye could see. There was no hope of seeing the stage, any speakers, singers, or graduates.

Regardless of the weather, my husband received his doctorate degree! I am so incredibly proud of his hard work over the past 3 years of graduate school, 5 years of undergraduate, and high school. The 3-pot days (coffee reference) and all-nighters are over. The long distance marriage is over. The painful group projects and research papers are over. It has been a wild ride and I am so proud of him for sticking with it and finishing with a 3.94 GPA.

Without further ado, some soggy photos… These make me feel drenched just looking at them.

Tyler and JJeremy met Tyler at the beginning of therapy school and they ended up being great friends. We wish Tyler and his wife Melissa the best of luck as they move to KC!

After graduation, we met Jeremy’s dad, step-mom, and sisters for lunch. Then, we rested up for his Beers & Cheers party later Saturday night.
