With Memorial Day having recently passed, and the 4th of July quickly approaching, it is a time I look forward to each year. Things slow down substantially, both at work and in most other areas as well. The month of May is by far the busiest time of year for me. With all the school banquets, ceremonies and senior shoots, I look forward to June for a bit of relief (not that I don’t enjoy all the business that comes with May). I enjoy seeing all the hard work that gets put in all year by students and seeing it culumate into many celebrations and graduation.
