We made it!

We have been "graduating" for the past two days. We are so proud of Danny and how hard he has worked to get here. Here are some pictures of the festivities.Thursday was the actual commencement exercises for all BYU graduates. That sea of black is all the graduates from BYU for the year (from all disciplines.) It was pretty awe-inspiring.Danny with our neighbor and friend, Kyle. With the Widdisons our bestest MBA friends and neighbors...what will we do without them??? (By the way...I lost a bit of hair-like 8 inches...what do you think?)These last pictures are from the Marriott business school graduation on Friday. Danny's dad and my mom showed up to celebrate. Dan (his dad) surprised him telling him that he was not able to make it. It was so nice to have them both here, it meant a lot to Danny...Thanks for coming guys.So here you have Master Danny! That sounds so impressive. It really is an impressive feat that he has accomplished and we are excited to begin the next phase of life...Michigan, here we come!

Soo much fun in soo little time!

We have been busy the past few weeks and since there was so many fun things and so many pictures, I made my first slide show so that you can see them all. Here are some of the events pictured (in no particular order!)
MBA closing social with pics with some of our favorite people in the MBA program (not to say that if you are not pictured, you are not some of our favorite people, we just may not have run into you that evening!) I can't believe that this whole wonderful experience is coming to an end!
Trip to the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point. There weren't too many tulips this year, but the kids and I had a blast.
Trip to Farm Country. Always a good time.
Neighborhood Concert. Our wonderful neighbor, Emily, held a music class for the kids in the neighborhood for the past year and they had their final concert. The kids sang Skiddamarinky dinky dink, Bringing home a baby bumble bee and Yummu yummy yummy, I got love in my tummy. She was the greatest and the kids were good, too! Then we were treated to a little ice cream. It's no wonder my kids love her best! They are really going to miss their second mom (and so am I!)
MBASA Service Project. We did a service project with the Spouse association, washing the Paratransit Buses. We had a good time giving back to the community.
Finally, my good friend Natalie, from California came up for a visit and we went to visit another Cali transplant, Aubrey, up in Riverton. Aubs just had a sweet baby boy and we went to visit and hold him. It was so fun to see my CA buddies. I sure have good friends.
Here are all the photos...enjoy!

It's official!

We are headed to Michigan to work for Ford. Yeah!!! Danny officially accepted the offer today and we should know in the next couple of weeks when we will start. I have already been house hunting online and am anxious to get out there to start in real life, but I have to wait to do anything until the Relocation company contacts us...I hate waiting! I feel like I have been waiting long enough, but circumstances are proving otherwise. I was ready to fly out to MI a couple of days after graduation, but I can't do anything until we hear from Ford.
It is definitely a relief to have a job secured, but now I just have to wait to have a home secured. Nonetheless, we are excited and grateful and curious about our future. We are blessed for sure.
