My sister is a college graduate!!

I am so excited for Mary! She finally graduated and now has a degree in Advertising from the Univ. of Memphis' School of Communications and Fine Arts! WAY TO GO BIFFER!!! Now she's just waiting to hear back from a couple of companies to see if she will land her first job post college! Looks like perhaps we will get lucky and she'll stay around Memphis for a couple of years. Selfishly, I'm thrilled, but we all want her to be happy! Jeremiah 29:11 says, "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." I think this verse is so appropriate for Mary right now, but really for all of us as we think about our future with kids, jobs, moving, etc.

Anyway, Mary's graduation was Saturday morning and Luke went to spend some time with his buddies Parker and Coley. Luke helped Parker and his parents plant flowers and they both got really muddy! I'm sure Luke had a blast! Then after graduation, my parents had a big party for Mary back at their house. Since it was also Cinco de Mayo, there was yummy Mexican food, margaritas and other delicious treats. It was a lot of fun to spend time with friends and family all while celebrating with Mary!

My sister and me on her graduation day!!

Aunt Mary and Luke having fun!

There she is! Do you see her? She's the one that's blurry with a black cap and gown on!!
