Graduation and Missing Families

I lay in bed and thought about this picture and was sad. I know everybody says “I have the best family!” and obviously not EVERYONE can have the best family. But I still like mine best.

They all swooped in for Steven’s graduation, and we had a week of grand adventures. Then, “poof!” They all left, flying away to exotic locations like Thailand and Toronto and Washington DC.

It’s all right though. I’ve been hanging out with my grandmother, who is cool and stuff.

The day after everyone abandoned me, I was driving to school when I saw a piece of paper on my windshield.

I pulled over and picked it off. It was a wet photograph of my sister Amy.

Not sure how it got there, but I miss her, so I stuck it on my sun visor.

I’m graduating from Linn Benton in a week. It’s kind of sad that none of them will be there.

Not that graduating is that big of a deal, since I’m only halfway to my bachelor’s degree, but still.

But if you want to see me in a square blue hat, you can come to my graduation. It will be held at 7:00 pm on Thursday, June 13, at the Linn County Fair & Expo Center, 3700 Knox Butte Rd., Albany, OR. Yes I did just copy and paste that address from the flier, which is why the font is big and different but oh well.

Doors open at 6:00. I think that’s all the info you need.

Another picture of me and my family to close up this post:
