It’s a busy year for our family in terms of graduations, which makes May a busy month! This past weekend we celebrated graduation round 1 in Tennessee. We drove into Nashville on Friday night and met my whole family there to kick off the celebrations for Ted’s graduation from Belmont.

His graduation ceremony was Saturday morning. After breakfast at Bongo Java we all went over to the Curb Event Center to watch him walk across the stage (and cheer obnoxiously too, of course). Nate and I both enjoyed some snuggles from our nephew, Jack, while we were there! It’s been WAY too long since we got to see him and he has grown up so much!

We all had lunch at Flip Side afterward, walked around an art fair in the afternoon, and then went to a brewery for pizza and drinks later that night. Everyone had a lot of fun together!

The next day, the Hartogs went to Tullahoma to celebrate my cousins’ college and high school graduations while Nathan and Luke went back home. It was a great excuse to get together with our extended family and catch up. We don’t get the chance to do that often now that we are all older and live so far apart, so we definitely appreciate the times when we are able to be together. We even got to visit Paul!

It was great to spend time with him and then everyone else at the cookout. We went back to Nashville on Sunday night and I flew out to Houston with my sister Monday morning to spend a few extra days with her and Jack.
