Hooray! Graduation!! Commencement was held in the new BYU-Idaho Center, which is amazing. They were just barely starting construction on it when we left back at the end of 2008, so it was pretty incredible to see the completed building. It's like the Conference Center. Amazing.
|Congratulations Class of 2012? Thank you very much.|
|President Clark, congratulating the graduating class, which was the largest in university history.|
|Elder M. Russell Ballard, of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, shared some thoughts on facing the future with faith, rather than fear.|
|Right after commencement; Nathan was a bit fussy. (Actually, kind of all through the night. It had been a long drive for him.)|
|I know it's blurry, like most of my picture are. :( But it's still a sweet one and I love it!|
|My dad made these sweet t-shirts for my entire family to wear for me! They say, "Good job Tracy! You did it! We love you!" Pretty neat! And he was right, it did help me find them in the crowd. ;-)|
|The family-- and I didn't even coordinate all the color matching! Go family! :)|
|Our little family. :) It's so great to see our accomplishments along the way.|
|A big, huge thank you to Freddy. :) This really has been a family accomplishment, and I'm so grateful to him for supporting the family so that I was able to focus on my schoolwork.|
All in all, it was a great day, and I was so glad that so much of my family was able to come support me. :) Thanks guys!
