Jedediah Benson Alvey graduated from BYU. YAY!
I used to think that during graduations families cheered really loud because there was a chance that their student wouldn't have graduated. Well-- I knew that Jed was gonna graduate- I mean he was practically born to be a student- but I still cheered. Really loud. :)
After the grad party we had a hoppin' party at our place. It was a much needed "happy" party, and I think it was pretty great! The kids were entertained, there was some aggressive 4 square (made-up rules and all) and some fun to be had by all. Plus, the food was delish!
We had a pinata- which I did not make- (side story- if you want a pinata that isn't Justin Beiber or rugrats-- don't go to Walmart) but the kids had a blast. I loved it! Honestly, I don't know if I loved it more than the kids or not- there's something about hitting something with a bat-- that sends candy everywhere, that I just LOVE!
So many family and friends were able to be there. I know Jed probably didn't say much-- but it meant a lot for everyone to be there. It was a special day for him- thanks for making it even better!
***shout out for the letters we recieved in the mail for those family long distance-- that was very thoughtful :)
