It makes such a great little gift.

And Just Like That...We Have a College Graduate!

We had such a great weekend in Berkeley, California celebrating our oldest sons graduation.  The past four years have just flown by!  Benjamin graduated with a degree in Linguistics from U. C. Berkeley.


He's accomplished SO much, but isn't quite done.  He will take a class this summer and two this fall and graduate again in December with a second degree in Spanish Linguistics. We could not be more proud of this young man!


Several family members were able to attend,  the boys pictured here with their Yaya.


We had many celebrations over the weekend and lots of meals.



He might have been a little excited with the updated version of his Mac Book Pro he received for high school graduation.


Nicholas has one year under his belt at University of Utah and will take a couple of classes this summer before coming home for a few weeks.  It was fun to see him be so happy for his brother.
