On Saturday, I graduated from Utah State! I still don't feel old enough to be a college graduate. I would just like to take a moment to thank all of my family that came to Logan to support me on Saturday, and also for all of the support I have gotten throughout my college career. Here are a few pictures from Saturday:

 That's Kevin (Tyler's brother) on the left carrying the rifle... The Air Force ROTC headed up the procession.

 Can you find me? Oh, there I am... This was during the procession. Note to self... If you ever graduate again and walk in a procession, wear more comfortable shoes next time. 

 Between the Commencement and Convocation ceremonies in the Spectrum.

 With my Mom! 

 Right before I walked to receive my empty diploma case! (Mom... my weird wrist/hand is just for you)

 Shaking the department head's hand.

 Getting my diploma cover.

 With two of the PR professors that I was able to work with.

 Congratulations to Mary Frances who graduated from the U on Saturday as well! Thanks for bringing your cap and gown so that we could take these fun pictures!

 With our parents.

 Me with my parents. I know, pretty obvious...
 With my siblings! 

With the best man in the whole world!

I don't think I have realized yet that I am actually graduated. I mean, I know I walked and got my diploma cover, and that I don't have any more classes to take, but I don't think that it will be real until I get my diploma in the mail, when I get a real job, and when I don't go back to school in the fall. 

I really am grateful that I had the opportunity to get an education. If I wouldn't have come to Utah State, then I wouldn't have met Tyler, and who knows where I would be without him? Scary thought...

Anyway... I will stop rambling. I'm just grateful for everybody who helped me along the way, and for all of the people who have influenced me in any way!

P.S. I did get my one graduation wish... Aggie Ice Cream!
