Graduation...?

I finally graduated!  That's right folks, nine years and ten months after my high school graduation, I finally have a Bachelor's degree!  It's not the BMA I'd been hoping for, but at this point I'll take whatever I can get.  Apparently I'm in the 120th graduating class from BYU-Idaho/Ricks College.  It feels good to finally finish!  Now we'll have to see if there are any Graduate programs out there who will accept me...

Here's some video:

Grant's excited that we're moving and he doesn't have to grow up in Rexburg...

Maybe we should have been on the other side of the sign so we'd 
have a more interesting part of the building behind us.  Whatever.

YAY! Congrats Ben that is great! It was fun to see some of Ricks campus again. I loved that place.
That is funny about the 120th graduating class because it was Ricks when we started and it doesn't seem that long ago that is pretty cool!

What!!! You didn't tell me you were going to walk! Good greif, Ben! After 10 years I would have liked to see you walk! Oh well. At least you got some cute picts. (Oh yeah, and a diploma!) CONGRATULATIONS!

And we are SOOOOO excited that you're moving here!!!

Uh oh. And watch out for that "gps" comment before my comment. DON'T OPEN IT!

I've gotten several of those. I opened one and it was porn.

Set your blog settings so you can review comments before they're posted. Or only get comments from people you know. You can delete that one by clicking on the little grey garbage can underneath the post.

Love you!

Call us when you're moving. We want to help.

Ben, congratulations! This is so Jeff, by the way. He's going to be graduating this summer and has been in school (getting his bachelor's) for 6 years! I'm sure he has empathy for you! Congrats again!
