It just might be worth it

I have been wishing lately that I was graduating this May instead of this fall. I know it shouldn't be a big deal but it really is. I don't know how many of you know but President Thomas Monson the prophet for the Church of Latterday Saints if speaking at graduation at SUU. I can't believe it. What an awesome thing. I kind of wish I was doing my student teaching in Las Vegas this summer and then I would be able to graduate this May but I don't know what my family would do without me for 12 weeks if I moved to Las Vegas for 12 weeks this summer. I guess I will just have to wait and graduate in the fall. Bummer... How often does this happen??? What a great thing to have him come and speak. He is such a great speaker.

Mike has to be at graduation so maybe I will just HAVE to go and give him support and company, it just would be even cooler if I was walking and graduating too. (Oh well. Only if I had started a little earlier with my schooling instead of worrying about my RS president calling.)
I wonder if there will be any protesters at it. This will be interesting.

You should definitely go. Heck, I'll probably go, now that I know he'll be there! I wonder if anyone I know is graduating?

He spoke at my convocation (the one you do with your smaller college) because his granddaughter graduataed in music at the same time Joel and I did. When we came in, Joel saw him standing in a dark corner backstage, so we got to shake his hand. He is so tall!

I don't think you can ever go wrong by faithfully serving. All things happen for a reason my friend.

Hey! When I saw you in the hall the other day it reminded me I havent blog stalked you in awhile! So, miss-full-of-info, you could interview for an internship next month (like me!) and then graduate in May! I'm sure you'll be happy to continue on your scheduled path, but it's just a thought! email me!

Wow, go see the prophet...

Now that i am far far from Utah I miss having those types of opportunities.

Thanks for commenting on my blog.

Um I didn't see your email anywhere or I would have just emailed you, but yes I love my goaties.

I've only had them for two months. They are both pregnant yearlings. They are beautiful. I plan on milking them and using the milk in every way I possibly can.

I would love to live on a goat farm. What a great way to grow up.

I have completely fallen in love with goats. Mine are so sweet and friendly.

Anyway you can email me:

I haven't posted too much about goats. But I'm sure I will. There is just too many random thoughts bouncing around my head. :0)
