Hey, friends! I’m back again for another life update, in case you missed anything. I hope May has treated you as well as it’s treated me, because I’ve had a great month. Graduation, moving home, and going back to work are just a few of the exciting things I’ve been up to in the month of May. Let’s get started!

By the time May started, school had already started to wind down. I was getting to the end of all my class work and mostly just waiting around until graduation. I received the Moore Religion Award at the Honors Convocation, which was a really huge honor and blessing. Other than that, school was pretty boring in May.

I also got the honor of filming the wedding of two of my friends, Caleb and Ashwyn Seabolt. They had a beautiful wedding with a ton of people, and I was really thankful to be a part of it.

I spent my last couple of weeks at school spending as much time with my friends as possible. We had a great time. The night before graduation, we all got together with our families for one last big dinner. We all wore t-shirts representing the next step in our lives and had fun just enjoying each other’s company.

Then the big day rolled around: graduation. I was nervous, but it wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be. They called my name, I walked across the stage and got my diploma, and then it was over. I had graduated. Once I finally had the diploma in my hand, it hit me that it was really over. It was a really scary and exciting feeling at the same time. I am no longer an undergraduate!

I didn’t waste any time between school and work. After a couple weeks of taking it easy, I was ready to be busy again. And my pastors certainly made sure I was. I’ve been working hard for the past two weeks at my home church, Cavanaugh Church. I’ve been doing all kinds of stuff from helping plan the mission trip to buying games supplies for the youth group to helping feed the homeless. I love my job, and I love how much energy I get to put into it. It’s going to be a great summer.

That’s pretty much all I’ve been up to this month. Yesterday, I celebrated baby Wyatt’s first birthday with his parents/my friends Zach and Jessica and many others. Today I’m working with kids at my church’s Celebrate Recovery lunch and heading to Camp Beaverfork to be a counselor and work technology for teen camp. I’ll be traveling most of June, so I’ll have lots of fun stuff to share with you when I get back. Thank you for reading, and have a great day!
