Adventures in Georgia Vol. I

While we love visiting our hometown and seeing family and friends, we always schedule visits around significant events. This last visit was no exception. I would NOT have missed my sister's graduation!!! I'm so proud of her! She graduated from Georgia Southern University with a Bachelors degree in Nursing. She's such a Smarty McFarty, she graduated Magna Cum Laude!

We went to the School of Nursing Pinning ceremony on Friday night, which made me reminiscent of my own pinning ceremony 4 years ago! Casey took the stage with her classmates and I pulled out my camera to snap some pics... and... nothing happened. Dead battery! Durrrrr!!!! I made certain to charge it up for the big ceremony on Saturday morning.

Graduation was held in Paulson Stadium and some 2400 kids graduated last Saturday!!!! There was no room in the stands and people were spilling out into the grass and all over the place. It was also a little... um... warm. Central Georgia + May + 11AM + direct sunlight = HOT!

There's Cas on the big screen receiving her diploma!

Post-graduation and cooling off in Casey's apartment. Casey walked the stage somewhere around 10:45 and shortly after, we (my family & I) hoofed it over to her place and sat around in the AC until the ceremony was officially finished around noon. Can I say again how excited I am for Cas? She's such a sweet, Jesus-loving girl and I'm so fortunate to call her my sister and my best friend.

Congratulations Class of 2010!!!!

Awww..I love you sis! I'm so glad to be your best friend too. If I ever cried (which we all know neither of us ever do), that would've made me cry.
