A Really Great Day

Friday morning was Scott's Law School Graduation. It felt so surreal to be done with law school and I couldn't be more proud of Scott. Was is really 3 years ago that he graduated from BYU? And yet I can remember that Graduation. At that first graduation ceremony, Alan was a little baby and Emma was an excited 2 year old wearing a monkey backpack. This time, Mom, Dad, and Jake were there to help keep the kids entertained during the 2 hour ceremony. We have come so far in these 3 short years.

After graduation, we went up to Farmington and checked in on our house. We were so excited to see that the foundation was done and they were just taking off the forms. Maybe we really will have a house in August.

Then we left the kids with Mom and Dad and went to see Star Trek. It was so good and as an extra bonus our friends the Boyles were there. We had not seen them in about a year so it was a nice little reunion.

After the movie, we had a fun little BBQ with Scott's family and then, completely worn out from a long good day, we headed home.

Congratulations!!! Good job Scott and I'm so happy your foundation is there for your new house. I haven't seen you for a while so It's nice to catch up with what you've been up too. Hopefully I'll see you this week.

Wow - it is hard to believe that the long hall is really over! That was such a fun day to share with you and we're so proud of both of you.
Love always,
Mom Hilton
