two happy grads and two tired kids...


we are finally done!! Scott and I graduated from the new Utah Valley University today. I received my bachelors in psychology and scott received his in accounting. Scotts parents were able to fly in and share this great day with us. Since Jack usually doesn't even wake up until about noon, 9:30 is pretty early to have every one dressed and out the door. As Scott and I sat on the floor during the commencement we had a full team of 2 grandmas, 2 grandpas, and an uncle and his girlfriend looking after a squirmy 18 month old and a hungry 2 month old...what troopers. I don't think there is enough goldfish or story books in the world to keep little jack occupied during a relatively boring graduation ceremony, so you can imagine after about 2 hours he was ready to fall apart. And he did. Right before pictures. Go figure. (see above and below for an illustration)
Thanks to all you family and friends who made this day possible...we couldn't have done it without you!!
