Wordless "the grad ticket experience" Wednesday

At my sons school, they dont just give you tickets for graduation, you have to wait for them...

When I got to the school at 5:30 AM, this is what I found....

Yep, you have to camp there to get Home Side seats...I guess I didnt get the memo on that one!!

You wait in line just to get a ticket to be in line. 4 1/2 hours later, I got tickets on the Visitor side of the field. They sold out of home side seats 20 people before me. Oh well, I cant lose site of why Im going there. Its not for the best seat in the house, its to see my baby graduate....Im glad I dont have to do THAT again!!!

Too right! How bizarre. Maybe it's time to invest in a pair of platform shoes.

That's bizarre. I never heard of such a thing. Congratulations to the graduate and I hope you can see the ceremony from your seat.

I've never heard of camping out for graduation tickets before, it must be a very large graduation class at this school.

Ps. loved the painted pink nail :)
