Graduation!

I did it! I finally graduated from college!!!
I got my Bachelor's degree in Communication with an emphasis in public relations (or according to Jenn, personal relations :). The commencement ceremony was Friday, and my parents and sister came to Rexburg for it (thanks guys!). It was a nice ceremony, but a little disappointing because of the lack of traditional parts of graduation that BYU-Idaho didn't include. They didn't line us up by last name or even major, we just lined up as we got there. Since I was one of the first people there, I got to sit on the second row. Elder M. Russell Ballard spoke and gave us graduates some advice about sharing the gospel as we go out into the real world. Then they didn't have us change our tassels over to the other side of our caps, or even throw the ugly square graduation hats up in the air. But oh well, at least I'm done!
Well, sort of...In the middle of the semester they found out they had double counted some of my credits so I have another 3 credit class to take this summer plus one internship credit that I was already planning on doing. But it won't be bad, Eric is going to school full time and I'll just take one class between his. It still feels like I'm done though!
Thanks to everyone for all the support through school. It's been a process, and an even harder one these last 2 semesters now that we have Ethan, but it has been so worth it and I am so glad I finished!
