Moving On, Moving Up, & Unfortunately, to the COLD

As the previous post states, I graduated from HS on May 30th. I am so excited to be done with high school, but pretty nervous to be moving away from home and my awesome parents. But I am way excited to head to college. Unfortunately it will be cold, but hopefully it will be worth it. Dave and Chelsea have certain nicknames for Rexburg that certainly make it a bit less appealing, but at least I will be around two of my sisters, my brother, and by then, my sister-in-law. Graduation was good, but long. But not as long as last year! That was a definite advantage of being on senior council and planning out the program for the ceremony. We cut off about an hour. Last year it took an hour and 15 minutes for all the graduates to walk. This year, it took my awesomely efficient fellow council members 40 minutes to get through 647 graduates' names!!! I had to sit on the stand since I am on student council and because some people didn't want to hold auditions for it, senior council did the musical number as well. I sang in front of a massive amount of people. Fortunately there was a slide show going at the same time, and my solo was only half of a verse. Not too bad once it was over. Thanks to all the people who came out to support me! And thanks to everyone that supported me in whatever way they could! I love you all! I still don't feel like I am done. But I suppose that feeling will officially set in when I start college. Well that's about it! Here are some pictures. Oh p.s. I'm in Mesa right now visiting Tiff and Ty, and they have a Chevy Prism. Well my mom and I didn't want to spend the money to rent a car, so I got to sit on the floor where Isaac liked to kick my face, and Tiffany's seatbelt would smack me in the head whenever she took it off. Ha ha at least it was interesting. And the pictures of me and student council cramming in the car are related to that. :D
p.s.s. I will have a video posted of the song I sang sometime in the near future. It's on mom's camera and computer.
