Kati Jo GRADUATED!!!!

Today was a good day...Kati Jo Graduated from Snow College!! The graduation started at 10am which meant seven adults and one 3yr old child had to be up and on the road at 7am.....we did pretty good..we were actually on the road at 7:15am!! Woot! Woot! It was a pretty rainy drive...but we were able to drive safely and we made it to Ephraim at about 9:25am...There were already lots of people arriving for the graduation and we found seats with Ben in the bleachers...(hard uncomfortable seats, but it kept us awake haha) 10am the graduates walked in following the color guard...saw Kati come through the doors...so ready to take some good pictures..well, I have a really stupid camera...I have posted pictures, but for some odd reason some are blurry and some are good! It wouldn't have anything to do with the photographer would it? Actually, this is what happens when you buy a cheap camera on Black Friday...you think you're getting a good deal until your child graduates or something and these are the pictures you get!




1st picture is before the graduates arrived...band was playing. Next picture Kati was walking in...she is in the middle. 3rd picture is the group...she's there really...


This picture was a teary moment...the lady in pink and the gentleman hugging the Pres of Snow College are a mom and dad that received diplomas for their two daughters who were roommates at Snow. Their daughters died together in a car accident on February 13, 2009 while traveling home for the weekend...the girls lived, loved and died together...their mom kissed their diploma's and held them tight...my heart broke for these parents who never dreamed when they sent their two girl's off together to receive their college education that they would one day honor their memories by receiving their diploma's on their behalf...the crowd gave them a standing ovation...the very least ......







Sorry about the blurry.......hope you can pick Kati Jo out....kind of like "where's Kati instead of where's Waldo...LOL

These are random family pictures....












Wooooo Wooooo Kati Jo!!!


These last two pictures I just had to put in for memories...we were getting Max to take his picture with the guys...well, as you can tell, he had a 'wedgy' and of course, had to take care of it!!! Good Job Max!!!



It was a great day.....Congratulations Kati Jo..ya did good!!!

I think Kati graduated in the Arts...not exactly sure of the title...she is a Dance major and will be continuing her education at the University of Utah in the fall
