Spring Convocation 2008

Well it is official, I now have a University Degree! *Throws her hat*

Today was my convocation from the University of Alberta, it was a day filled with a lot of joy, pride and even a few tears. I am so happy that I am finally done school and incredibly nervous to face adulthood.

The day was long but it was so worth it to walk across the stage in front of my family and celebrate my successes and four years of hard work! It was also nice to be able to share this day with Steve who also celebrated his convocation as well today.

I think the moment that got to me the most, aside from walking across the stage and shaking the hands of all the important people who were up in their fancy chairs, was when the two parents of Education students who had passed away before they were able to celebrate with their family and friends accepted their degrees on their behalf. It was a sad reminder that life can cut short and you never know what could happen, so we need to remember to show those who we love just how much we love them, live life to the fullest, and to have no regrets!

To my family (those related by blood and those who are related by choice!)

Thank you so much for your love and support throughout everything I do. You love me unconditionally and you will never know just how much that means to me. There are not enough words to describe just how much I respect, care for and love all of you. Thank you for the laughs, smiles, and yes even the tears!

I will leave you with a few pictures of today:

I will show you more, when we get them printed from the 17 hundred different cameras that we had at the ceremony.
