Celebrate the Rain

This past Sunday was commencement at Walla Walla U. It was an overcast morning with chances of thunderstorms, and though we didn't get any thunder or lightning, the valley sure got soaked! I loved the collection of umbrellas across the lawn where they hold the ceremony each year. It's called Centennial Green, as it was dubbed in 1992 when the school celebrated its 100th year. It may have been raining, but that didn't subdue the celebrations and cheering! Congratulations to the WWU class of 2009!

It always rains during commencement. If not during the ceremony, then at least before or after. Oh, well. That's what umbrellas are for.

Even though I am a member of the WWU Class of 2010, a classmate of mine and I went to get inspired for our 2nd year in the MSW program.
