Congratulations High School Seniors, Class of 2015!!!

High School Seniors Congrats to all of these wonderful seniors who are graduating this June.

My youngest is among you.  As a parent, it's a wistful experience, thinking that I won't attend any more concerts, swim or track meets, soccer games, nor the drama that accompanies the entire high school experience of friendships, love lost, school dances, sporting events, etc.  I know from personal experience that while I was in the vocal jazz and concert choirs at the University of Oregon, it was not nearly as bonding as my high school choir experience.   Friendships are deeper, but fewer.  Camaraderie is not as easily found.  Enjoy your great memories and thank your parents.  Its no doubt been a fun, but challenging experience for each of you that make affect you the rest of your life.

I picked my favorite photographs of them to highlight on this blog, whether it was a head shot or full length. Hope you enjoy this gallery.  :-)
