Graduation

WE DID IT!!! Last Wednesday, May 20th, David and I both graduated from American River Junior College with our AA degrees. David got his AA in Vocal Music and mine is an AA in Liberal Arts. It was a great day. David had his last final in the morning. His parents flew in to be with us and we enjoyed celebrating with them. We enjoyed deli trays from Raleys with Mom and Dad and Aunt Robin and Will. Then we headed over to AR (after dropping off Glo and Nephi with the greatest friend a girl could have -THANKS SARAH!!). We sent the 4 "big" kids, Faith, Hyrum, Vilate, and Helaman, with Grandma and Grandpa Cox, Aunt Robin and Cousin Will to meet my parents on the bleachers while David and I got into the line of graduates. The ceremony lasted just short of 90 minutes and after we headed back to our house to have cake and ice cream. Aunt Kelli joined us for ice cream and visiting. Everyone left around 10:30 pm. It was a late night for the kids and the parents, but it was really fun. It was so cool to look up into the bleachers and see our kids waving and screaming for us. We are officially done at American River College and head over to Sacramento State in the fall!
