Oh The Places You'll Go

I captured this cool shot of Jesuit High School's Class of 2011 after they received their senior rings. All the boys gathered downstairs, cheering, whooping and hollering, happy to be one step closer to graduation. They had processed out of the Chapel of the North American Martyr's first, so when the parents stepped out onto the 2nd floor landing we were at a great vantage point to witness the celebration...and snap a few pictures. Now we play the Where's Waldo game whenever trying to find Christopher in the photograph. Thankfully he was one of only 2 or 3 boys wearing a maroon shirt, making it just a little easier to spot him in the crowd below.


It is hard to believe, but I now have four kids who have graduated high school and two who have earned college degrees. Where does the time go? And where will they go? 

In life I hope they go far. 

In distance, I hope they live close...or at least some place accessible and fun to visit!
