On June 21st, my eldest son "graduated" from sixth grade. I was proud of him, for sure, but I admit to being cynical about the day's event. I mean, graduation? Really?
Don't get me wrong. My husband took the morning off from work, we took the camera and video camera, we were ready to document this mildly momentous event in our first son's life.
We lined up outside the cafeteria and filed in when the doors opened. I positioned myself on an aisle seat so I could easily move out to shoot my photos and video.
The cooling system in the room was not working well, everyone fanned themselves with the event programs.
