Graduations...Graduations...and even more Graduations

I don't even want to count the number of graduations I have been at during the past two weeks.
But I'm glad to say that they're FINALLY OVER!!!
I hate how they are LONG and BORING! The only reason I go is to support my fellow friends, but you have to wait for the VERY LONG AND BORING speeches in the beginning and for your friend's name to be called out, only to cheer for 10 seconds or less. Seriously..that's ridiculous.

But I have to say, the best one so far was the Air Force Academy graduation.
My friends and I are so blessed to have a brother in the Air Force :]
He graduated as a distinguished student which is equivalent to one of the three Latin honors.
Only 10% of the graduates received the awards and there were a total of 1020 something graduates.

My friend told me that they practiced the whole march and receiving award thing for 8 hours!!
It looked cute though in their uniforms hehe

President Obama was supposed to be at his graduation, but I guess his schedule changed so the President will be coming next year, which sucks. The Secretary of the Air Force came instead and he looked so tired towards the end because he had to salute and shake hands of ALL the graduates!! I would have died after 20 haha

We were all looking forward to the air show and hoping that it wouldn't rain. It's been raining like crazy here! Three days of rain than a day or two of sunshine then another three days of rain -___- Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the rain but seriously..there has to be a limit.

But by God's grace, we were able to see it!! :D
After the graduates said their oath, they threw their hats in the air and the planes flew above us..AWESOME!!

Other than that the graduation lasted about 4 hours -___-
but I guess it was worth it haha

and congratulations to all the graduates this year!!
God Bless! <3

congratulations to all your friends who graduated! i know what you mean about them being so long and boring. Especially sucks if the person you went for has a last name that starts with X, Y, or Z! haha!
