College Graduation

 Well it's over! Jared and I have graduated! This won't be a long sappy post, because really I am just still so glad that chapter is over. It was a good run but we are ready to move on, and we are go glad we have!
Graduation was wonderful. My Mom and Dad were able to come out for it and that meant so much to me. Skyler and his girlfriend Mallory also came to the graduation. Jared's parents and a few of his siblings were able to watch the graduation online and that meant so much to me too! That really showed me that they supported and loved us, watching a long boring commencement speech online just for us!
First there was commencement, where President Clarke, the president of the school spoke, then we heard from Russel M. Ballard. They both gave wonderful talks about looking to the future with hope and faith instead of fear. There were some cool stats too. About 1600 people were graduating, and of those, 76 couples were graduating together, and we were one of them!
After commencement we divided into colleges for convocation. I was able to walk with Jared, so we were in the Business and Communication college. We listened to a few student speakers and then we did the walk across the stage to get our empty diploma covers.
After that long ceremony and night, my parents took Me, Jared, Skyler, and Mallory down to Idaho Falls to Red Robin for a celebratory graduation dinner. It was so fun, but we were exhausted by the end of the night.
The best part of graduation (aside from the whole never going to school again thing), was graduating with my husband, my best friend in the world. It was such a cool experience and it was one of the best moments of my life, to walk across that stage with my husband right behind me. I am so grateful for my college experience, for BYU-Idaho and for Rexburg. Say what you will, that place gave me my sweet husband, and my college degree!
So now we are outta there. I'll put up a post probably tomorrow all about Boise and our new place. Let's just say we are so happy!! Woo Hoo!
