As most people know, this weekend is my brother’s college graduation.  My brother Matt and I are extremely close and I could not be more proud of him.  It’s hard to think how fast the last four years have gone for everybody!

Since he is graduating a military academy so it’s a longer event and lasts a few days!  He spent four years at Kings Point Academy and because of his hard work received a commission into the U.S. Navy.

I’m extremely proud of him for the hard work he has put in.

Four years ago, I visited him for family weekend.  He had just gotten through the first few months of the military academy.

It’s hard to believe how fast time has gone for both of us.  We are all proud of him and can’t wait to celebrate.

  1. Congrats to your brother and good luck to him in the US Navy! My brother just returned home from 6 years of active duty service. Tell him thank you for his service!

  2. Congratulations! You must be so proud of your brother. You both look so different since his high school graduation – I love both of your changes in hair! Makes such a difference!

  3. Congratulations to your brother! I’ve always wanted a brother, but instead I got stuck being an only child 😕 And it really is crazy to think how fast time goes by. Sometimes I’ll look back at things that happened 5 years ago and think… how the heck did I get from there to here?!

  4. I always really wanted a brother too! I have two older sisters but I mainly grew up on my own because they left home pretty early and I was only 8 when they left. Congrats to him and have fun celebrating!
