I know this is super-duper late, but here is a recap in a few pictures of our Memorial Day weekend. We spent the weekend in the Lowcountry of SC (Charleston area) for my nephew and cousin’s high school graduations.
I’m very proud of my nephew. He will be following in his dad, my brother’s, footsteps and head to Parris Island in August for Marine boot camp. My brother is currently serving in Afghanistan until January and wasn’t able to be see him graduate. As I type this, I believe that my brother missed his own h.s. graduation because he left for boot camp… I’m very proud of both of them.
We also attended the h.s. graduation of my little cousin Savanna. She will be attending Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte this fall. Actually, she is there already taking early courses. So very proud of her!
We also went by the cemetery to take flowers to my mom’s grave. We hadn’t been since Memorial Day 2011. Last year we took this picture of RJ at the gravesite.
Here he is this year! What difference a year makes:)
