College Graduate!

Yep, that's right! This past weekend I graduated from BYU! I graduated with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Recreation Managment and Youth Leadership from the College of Health and Human Performance! It was such an amazing experience because I was able to spend the whole time with my family. My family drove up from Las Vegas to be there and also James's Dad came up from New Mexico. James's brother Craig and his fiance Josephine came down from Park City. Also my grandparents were home from their mission in Finland so they were able to be there and James's grandma, was there too! It was so awesome to see my family and spend time with them. I love them so much!

It feels so good to be done with school! Now I guess I have to get a real job ;) I am currently working for the City of Provo in their Recreation Department. I plan and organize their special events that they put on for the community. I also just started working for the 4-H Afterschool program at Canyon View Jr. High. I coordinate the programs and clubs at the Jr. High and the special events. It has been such a great experience, and I love working in the recreation field. Sometimes it doesn't even feel like work...;)

Here are some pictures of the exciting day!

Here is my family sitting in the crowd!

I love these guys!
