I can't even say how proud I am of Derek for graduating. He graduated with his Bachelors in Psychology. He really enjoyed the program, and even thought that he might have pursued a career in counseling, if he hadn't had his heart set on being a police officer.
Here are some pictures of the big day:
It started out raining off and on while every was getting their seats. When we left Spokane it was sunny and bright, so I didn't bring an umbrella or anything to protect against the rain but as we drove to Cheney, it started sprinkling.... I got seats on the bleachers off to the side and it had a puddle of water all the seats. I stood for awhile while waiting for Derek's family to arrive and rescue me with something to dry the seats and umbrellas because I had called to warn them.
I like this picture though, and partly because of all the umbrellas that are opened.
The banner for Derek's department. They are all filing in, and we were able to stand by if we wanted to get pictures of them as long as we stayed off the very distinctive Red track.
Here he is! Next to him is a good friend of ours, Aaron Hamilton, that is also graduating in Psychology. His wife, Amber, and I are due two days apart, and both of us having boys. It's been fun hanging out together.
