Clint's Graduation!!!

UVU's First Graduation!!!

And Clint was one of them!

I am so happy that he finally did it! It was a day that we'd been waiting for for a long time! At the convocation, President Thomas S. Monson spoke and received an honorary Doctorate degree. It was an amazing experience and I feel so privileged to be part of it.

Even President Ukdorf, President Eyring and their wives were there.

Waiting for our food. Boston was going crazy because the food was taking so long. Then when it finally started to come, she was the last one to get hers. Poor thing.

And that was our long and exhausting day. It was kind of a bitter sweet moment. We were all so happy for Clint, but still really sad that Jim wasn't with us anymore. But I really feel like he was there supporting Clint. Love ya Clint, you did great! Just promise me that law school isn't going to take as long as your undergraduate ;).

Congratulations Clint! I am so proud of you! When I watched the little video...I teared up, seriously! One day I will go back and finish! But seriously thank you for being such a great example to me and my children. I really appreciate it.

Congratulations Clint!! Who cares how long it takes. As long as you finish and you love what you do. I am very sorry that your dad wasn't there physically to see you, but you know he was standing right by you the whole day!!!
