Graduation

Well, graduation was this past Friday and I am officially a college graduate! It was such an awesome experience! I graduated with my Bachelors degree in Health Science and have learned so much. Both my parents and Adam's parents came up for a few days, which was a lot of fun and I am so grateful to them for making the trip up here. President Uchtdorf spoke and gave a very inspiring message.

It is a bittersweet feeling to be done. I am going to miss learning new things everyday and being a part of BYU-I, but I am excited to have graduated and to actually have some time to do some of the things I want to do. Now, on to finding a job!

In case you were wondering, we are still in Rexburg. Adam starts school at the beginning of January and we will be here through the summer. And....... the roads are already covered in snow and ice - the good news: only one winter left!!
Here is President Uchtdorf speaking at the banquet before commencement.
