i've always thought that a master's degree would be the coolest degree to get because you could say, "i'm a MASTER of... (insert degree here)," the way that he-man gets to say that he's the "master of the universe." as previously posted, ben just graduated with his master of science in acoustics. he officially graduates in december, but he walked at graduation last week. his siblings, doug and kadi, joined him in the ceremonies. it was totally a fun week of festivities with both sides of our family. ...and a totally awesome week of taking millions and millions of pictures. and here they all are...
probably our last visit to BYU's marriot center for a long time... sniffle, sniffle
hail the conquering graduates!
ben and doug working it in those sexy robes
me and ben with my parents
the graduates with their parental units
in front of tucanos - arguably the most delicious top sirloin and garlic steak in the world... let's just say that they are masters' of the meat universe
carter and joel playing with cars... they are being so good, but let me just throw this equation out for ya: graduation + kids = not fun
ben working the runway
the busath clan
the shafer clan
check out the "hood" that the masters students get to wear - very stylish
and finally... our excited, little family ready to embark on a new adventure and definitely ready to not be so poor anymore... oh wait, we are moving to california's bay area... we'll still be poor, but excited nonetheless :)
