Schooled

Evan and Jenni graduate from BYU this week. They had their last day of class on Thursday.
I'm so impressed with these two and all they have accomplished.

Can I just say that I am highly annoyed that BYU does not hold a graduation ceremony in December. I mean come on. This is the day that we as parents have been waiting to celebrate for years. I had visions of caps, gowns, and tassels. I wanted to sit in the Marriott Center with loads of other proud parents and clap wildly when our graduates names were called.

Anyway, Mrs. Jenni also got a job last week. She got hired to teach special ed. in an elementary school. She starts on Monday. Before she even graduates. Her new principal told her that this was kind of historic as she will start teaching before she has officially graduated. They are lucky to get her. She is so good with kids. The other exciting news is that as a teacher she qualifies for a discount at Ann Taylor Loft. Woo hoo!

Evan has some exciting opportunities as well but will decide in a few weeks.

Cue the Pomp and Circumstance...

Awwww....congrats!!!

I didn't walk, either. I graduated in March (we were on quarters) and by June, I so didn't want to come back just for the ceremony. So I didn't. My 'graduation' consisted of a very excited email with the words of "I'm Free" by the Soupdragons posted at the end...

Many, many Congrats to your adorable graduates!!!!!

That is really weird that they don't hold a graduation in December. Maybe you can stage one.

That is so great that Jenni was hired before she is officially graduated. It proves she is a great teacher.

Yippee!! Graduation is always fun even without the ceremony, though that is pretty lame.
