Jeffry's Graduation

Saturday, May 3, 2014: That morning Haley made pancakes, and we just sat around talking and watching Cora play with her new gifts. I tried taking some more pictures just to practice with my camera some more since I never really use it. My brother called me sometime around noon telling me I could head up to his place whenever I wanted even though my parents wouldn't get there until the evening. I decided that was probably a good time to let Haley and Ben have their house back. It was really sad leaving. I miss the social aspect of life. Everyone up here is either a lot younger or a lot older than me and in very different stages of life. It was nice to go back to something that was familiar and enjoyable.
That afternoon I made my way up to Dayton. It was nice to spend some time with my brother since it rarely ever happens. We sat around and talked. His roommates and their families came. Eventually, one of the families had a cook out. At one point my brother and I walked over to this bar that he frequented because he wanted to show me it. We got a drink then headed back. My parents eventually arrived and we just hung out with everyone.

Sunday, May 4, 2014: On Sunday my brother finally graduated from Dayton. It's so weird that the three of us have all graduated from college (although my sister and I went back to grad school). I always forget how long graduations can be. I had trouble with my camera, so the shots are really bad. I'm not good with indoor lighting. Of course my camera also decided to freeze when my brother went up, so I didn't get a good picture of him getting his diploma or on the screen.
Not sure what that guy in the background is doing, but he looks like he is about to hit my dad in the head with his cane.

Overall, it was a great weekend. I hated coming back to finals and never ending work days. It's definitely getting me ready for my trip to Asia this summer!
