A Very Proud moment

Last December Rodney, Lauren, and JoAnna graduated with there Bachelor degree at BYU Idaho, however chose not to walk at the ceremony, so we received these fun pictures of there accomplishment.  
It was a grand day for all of them knowing the hard work they put forth had paid off, 
and was complete at this point.

This past weekend Tony and I flew to Phoenix Arizona for Brent's big day.
On Friday the 4th of May he graduated at Grand Canyon University with his Master's in Educational Administration.  He has spent the past couple years working full time as the History teacher at
 Fort Huachuca Middle school, then coaching either track or cross country.  
The evenings were reserved for family, and homework as he took all of his classes online for his Masters degree.

So much sacrificing and dedication has been established by not only Brent, but also Randi and the girls in order to reach this great goal.  Now they can once again enjoy family time. 
Initially Brent asked if we would come to his graduation if he decided to walk, which I assured him we wouldn't miss it. When it came down to this actual event we could all tell how excited he was to put on his cap, gown, and special ribbons for  Graduating with Honors, as well as Masters.  I feel he wore both very proudly, as he should.
Throughout the evening people would request a message to be displayed on the reader board in the auditorium for individual graduates.  Though I never was able to capture a picture of the one Randi sent,
 I was able to capture this one that certainly applied.

So many smiles were shared as the evening progressed.                                    It truly was an evening of celebration.
Snacks were a must to entertain for two hours during the ceremony.As well as a camera to capture other treasured moments. Mama and daughter bonding time.
Pucker up sweetheart!!!

We had such a wonderful time, and felt such a huge amount of joy witnessing this grand event.
