Graduation - the moment of transition from College Life to the Real World (or to Grad School, in some cases). At long last, Emie and I donned our caps and gowns and walked together in BYU's Marriott Center. Despite graduating from a different department, we made special arrangements so that Emie could sit with me in the Humanities graduation ceremony, then walk with me.
Little did we know that these plans would change. An email was sent asking those in the Humanities who had shown interest in music to audition to perform at graduation. In the end, only 3 of us responded, all vocalists, so we formed a trio to sing "Lead, Kindly Light." A few days before the ceremony itself, the event coordinator informed us that, since we were part of the program, we would sit up at the front with the important people. This kinda spoiled our plans to sit together, but Emie made the best of it - she made faces at me through the ceremony until our time came to walk.
The song went quite well, considering how little time we had to rehearse it. Here are a few photos of the event.

Emie makes ANYTHING look good - here she is working that cap 'n' gown with sister Stacy and Mama Roach in the foreground.
A farewell to BYU - Bring on Connecticut!
