Well we did it!! We have officially graduated from college as of 12am last night when final grades were posted. I had the scare of a lifetime this morning when I got an email saying that I was on academic probation, so I thought I must not have passed all of my classes. I was sick to my stomach as I waited for the link to my grades to connect online. As they appeared, my heart skipped a beat. I did better than I have done since 8th grade!! I received a 3.89!! Yahoo!! And raised my cumulative GPA to a 3.65!! I was so pumped to know for sure that I was really done. It was scary waiting, but I did it!! Not to mention that Devin did it too!! He pulled of amazing grades by kicking it into high gear with his stubborn teachers at the end of the semester by showing them that even if they are jerks and horrible teachers, he can still pull off a 95% on their finals and bust out a great grade in their class!! He sure showed them. Devin has the real world skills he needs to succeed and that is what pulled him through in the end. Once his teachers started giving him assignments that really mattered he aced them and did so great!! I am so proud of him for working so hard throughout the semester, even though he had a lot of dates with the library! But now we are so excited for Devin to just have to go to work every day and then to be able to come home at 5 and to do whatever we want!! And maybe I will get a job too!! Ha Ha Mom. No more homework, no more library dates, no more late night projects!! We are done!! YES!! We had a great weekend with my family who came from California to watch us graduate. As we walked into the Hart auditorium hand in hand, the feeling was so awesome. We were one of 54 married couples who were graduating together and boy were we proud. We fell asleep during the speeches, due to the lack of sleep during the week because of the work on the house and our plethora of school projects, but we made it to our graduation "Banquet" at Craigos Pizza in Rexburg, and got to eat lots of pizza and a yummy graduation cake my Mom, the party queen, had gotten us. We also got a lot done on the house while my family was here, and now cannot wait to take a big long break for Christmas while we spend some time in California!!
