Behind Every Graduate…  

Posted by: Cameon

There’s a saying, “Behind every good man stands a woman,” which I have come to agree with here lately. If you look at the really happy men (truly happy I mean, not “I just got action” happy) you will most of the time find an incredible woman right by his side probably also with a few kids and a Honda Pilot.

I’ve had several people email me and ask me when my next piece would be up because I’d taken a break from writing. Truthfully, there was just a lot going on that kept me away from the computer. With that being said, I’d like to introduce “Behind every Graduate, there is an amazing support system.”

For those of you who don’t know, I graduated in May (pictures to come later). I graduated with a lot of knowledge about World War I and AP Statistics. I graduated with the lessons  that I learned over the years about finding out who I was. I graduated, with mostly the same friends and family that had been there for me throughout  the previous 18 years of my life. And they were still right beside me as I went into this next chapter into my life.

I’m sure there are exceptions to this rule, just like there are exceptions to every rule, but it is my firm belief that a lot of successful graduates have made it to that point because of the incredible support system that they have been blessed with. There are those that have to do everything on their own, without that parental support or guidance that still come out on top, and to those people, I commend you for going against the norm.

The reason I am saying all this, is just to thank everyone in my life for the amazing support and guidance they have provided for me throughout the years. I’m a believer in that you have a purpose for meeting everyone that you meet in your life, whether you know it or not and I have truly been blessed with getting to meet and mingle with some of the best. I would not be who or where I am without your support and guidance throughout the years and I am truly grateful. I also know that as I head into this crazy and exciting journey that I am about to embark on, there will be more advice to give and a lot more lessons to learn. I’m not nervous though, because I know I always have the incredible people I’ve been blessed with in my life to support me.

Now, all that the mushy stuff has been said, below are some photos from the last few months. I hope everyone enjoys (especially the pictures of Michael as he is growing so fast!) I hope this message find everyone well and that you continue to do well.

Roll Tide,

The Bama Chick

A-Day 2010 (Michael’s First Alabama Game!)

As you can imagine, this was a pretty big deal. My mom and I packed up Michael and we headed to T-town to join over 90,000 of our closest friends to judge just what we thought of the Tide. Michael spent almost all of the day in his baby backpack on the front of me and joined in with the cheering and clapping when he knew he should. This little man is definitely already a little Bama fan which is incredibly exciting for his big sister Cameon.

Mother’s Day

For Mother’s Day, I decided that MaMa could probably use some pictures of all three of her children besides the ones that she had made for the Christmas cards which will explain the pictures below. We had our pictures done by Photography By Tonya. She is an amazing photographer with very reasonable rates and she gets some great shots. (You’ll see her name later).

Senior Picnic/Graduation

As stated above, I graduated May 27, 2010. The pictures below are from the Senior Picnic that the school provided for us which was a lot of fun. The pictures from Graduation are from the Pre-Graduation party my family threw for me and were taken by Photography By Tonya. Again, can’t stress what a great job she does. Also, I can’t thank everyone enough for all the thoughtful gifts. I am working on thank you notes, there were just SO MANY! I love you all so much!

Summer Fun

Since Graduation, I have spent a lot of time working, but there also have been some really fun times. I went to the SEC Championship with a good friend of mine and also got to attend the NCAA Regionals in Atlanta. There have also been a few concerts and odds and ends things which are represented by the pictures below.

Until next time, (which will be soon with any luck) Roll Tide!
