On May 2nd, Marcus wore his recruit uniform for the last time! In fact, when I arrived at the Sandler Center for the graduation ceremony, I barely recognized him in his spiffy Class A’s. We were blessed to have all our family come out and support Marcus at his graduation.. I even put my little sister to work taking pictures! Unfortunately, the lighting was less than desirable for photographs, but she still captured the important moments.

Taking the oath
With his fancy-schmancy diploma!
With his dads, brothers & nephews!
With his wife, moms, sisters & nieces :)
With his parents!
And if that wasn’t enough of a photo-overload, my brother-in-law took a couple too!
Marcus & I having a sneaky, celebratory kiss!
