Is there nothing I won't complain about?

So I've started a new semester that is proving to be easier than any I've experienced in a long long while and....

I'm so bored!!! I wish I had taken more units but last semester still had me twitching when I signed up for this year that I couldn't force myself to even think beyond these few credits. Now all the classes are full and I'm stuck with my easy schedule that gets me only slightly closer to the end. Auggghhhh!!!

So, I complained literally nonstop last semester because I thought I was going to die with study and homework and classwork. I even found myself complaining to strangers I got so crazy. I gave up so many activities with the family and so many weekends and nights to study and it turned out okay. Well, better than good. I got the required A's in all my classes and so I'm still eligible for the Fresno State program but it wasn't without a fairly high cost. I thought I would be so happy with a lighter schedule but now I'm bored and find myself complaining about not enough to do. Maybe I should have my head examined.

Guess who graduated last month? Don't be fooled by the shy pose---

she'd shout it from the housetops if she could.

Waiting for the fun to start in the Taylor Chapel at BYU-I

So mom and dad are pretty proud too of their newest college graduate.

Silly sisters: Although Tori's losing her best roommate.

The whole crew who watched Kacey walk:

Allan, Karen, Kacey, Tara, Dustin, Lydia and Tori

Lydia was pretty tired by the time things got going and it was fairly hot and stuffy in the room but she really perked up when the applause started. I think she thought it was all for her: her legs started kicking and her smile was a mile wide as she acknowledged all her fans who were clapping for her. So funny!

So here we are, four kids down and three to go. We are just in the middle of the ride and yet so much has been accomplished: College graduation, missions, marriage, babies, grad school and first real jobs. I can hardly wait for the next 20 years!
